       1 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. See the CFOI Definitions 
    page (www.bls.gov/iif/oshcfdef.htm) for a more detailed description of each data element.
      
       Note: Data for all years are revised and final. Totals for major categories may include 
    subcategories not shown separately. Dashes indicate no data reported or data that do not meet 
    publication criteria. N.e.c. means "not elsewhere classified." CFOI fatal injury counts exclude 
    illness-related deaths unless precipitated by an injury event.
