(1) Total recordable case 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) Days-away-from-work cases include those that result in days away from work with or without job transfer or restriction.

(3) Data covers all 50 states.
