Though TTS is rare in commonality, causality can usually be determined in 70% of reported cases. According to a May 2014 OSHA report, in the workplace, TTS is considered a musculoskeletal disorder and accounts for 1.8 million cases a year, which accumulates to about $15–$20 billion a year ( Jeffress, Charles N. "Work-related Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs)." Work-related Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs). Occupational Safety & Health Administration, n.d. Web. 11 May 2014).  TTS occurs more dominantly in active adults, with a higher pervasiveness among women.
