       1 Fatal injury rates are per 100,000 full-time equivalent workers (FTEs). 
     Complete national rates can be found at www.bls.gov/iif/oshcfoi1.htm#rates. 
     Complete state rates can be found at www.bls.gov/iif/oshstate.htm. National and 
     state rates are calculated using different methodology and cannot be directly 
     compared. Please see www.bls.gov/iif/oshfaq1.htm#q17 for more information on 
     how rates are calculated and caveats for comparison. N/A means a rate was not 
     published for this group.    
       2 The Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) has published data on 
     fatal occupational injuries for the United States since 1992. During this time, 
     the classification systems and definitions of many data elements have changed. 
     Please see the CFOI Definitions page (www.bls.gov/iif/oshcfdef.htm) for 
     a more detailed description of each data element and their definitions.    
    
       Note: Data for all years are final. CFOI fatal injury counts exclude 
     illness-related deaths unless precipitated by an injury event.
