1 The incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses per 100 full-time workers and were calculated as:
(N/EH) x 200,000, where
N = number of injuries and illnesses
EH = total hours worked by all employees during the calendar year
200,000= base for 100 equivalent full-time workers (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year)

2 Totals include data for industries not shown separately.

3 North American Industry Classification System - United States, 2002

4 Employment is expressed as an annual average and is derived primarily from the BLS-Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) program.

5 Days-away-from-work cases include those which result in days away from work with or without job transfer or restriction.

6 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.

9 Fewer than 15 cases.

11 Incidence rate less than 0.05.
