Data for mining (Sector 21 in the North American Industry Classification System -- United States, 2002)

include establishments not governed by the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) rules and reporting,
such as those in oil and gas extraction and related support activities. Data for mining operators in coal, metal, and

requirements effective January 1, 2002: therefore estimates for these industries are not comparable
to estimates in other industries.

Data for employers in rail transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad

Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.
NOTE: Dashes indicate data that are not available. Because of rounding and data exclusion
of nonclassifiable responses, data may not sum to the totals.

nonmetal mining are provided to BLS by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor.
Independent mining contractors are excluded from the coal, metal, and nonmetal mining industries. These data
do not reflect the changes the Occupational Safety and Health Administration made to its recordkeeping
