Resumen The objective of this study was to examine whether health status and obesity prevalence differ by race or ethnicity and work classification among health care workers in the United States. Data representing health care workers aged 20 to 64 between 1982 and 2004 were retrieved from the Integrated Health Interview Series. Data were analyzed using logistic regression. Over time, there was a decline in the self-reported health status of health care workers, together with a rise in the prevalence of obesity. Moreover, there was a clear social gradient across workforce categories, which is widening over time. Finally, within workforce categories, there were significant race-related relationships in health status and prevalence of obesity.
