       1 Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction.
       2 Median days away from work is the measure used to summarize the varying lengths of absences from work among the cases with days away
     from work. Half the cases involved more days and half involved less days than a specified median. Median days away from work are
     represented in actual values.
       3 Race and ethnicity data do not add to total.  Some cases may be counted as both Multi-race and Hispanic and other race.
       
       NOTE:  Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.  Because of rounding and data exclusion of nonclassifiable responses,
     data may not sum to the totals.
