       1 Fatal injury rates are per 100,000 full-time equivalent workers (FTEs). 
     Fatal injury rates exclude workers under the age of 16 years, volunteers, and 
     resident military. 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#q16 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.
