I am seeking unpublished data on the association between mental health (e.g., depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc.) and workplace injuries (i.e., frequency, severity, or presence/absence) for a meta-analysis on the topic.
If you have access to data that potentially captures these variables but are short on time, please send me a quick note and we can work something out when it is convenient for you.
If you are able to share the raw data, please reply with an anonymized dataset and how you would like it to be cited.
If you would like to share results from data which itself cannot be shared, I kindly request a few pieces of information:
1. Effect size(s) (e.g., preferably correlation coefficients, but could vary depending on the nature of the variables [e.g., chi-square, OR, Cohen’s d may be more appropriate]) for the relationship between mental health and workplace injury indicators.
2. Measurement characteristics including 2.1) how the indicators were measured (scale, number of items, measurement source, length of recall used), and if applicable, 2.2) internal reliability of measurement.
3. Study characteristics including 3.1) design (e.g., concurrent, longitudinal, case-control) and 3.2) context (e.g., field, residence, lab).
4. Sample characteristics including 4.1) sample size, 4.2) mean age, and 4.3) % male. If available, any information on 4.4) industry/occupation of sample, as well as 4.5) minority-, 4.6) relationship-, 4.7) income-, and 4.8) educational-status would also be welcome.
