Days-away-from-work cases include those that result in days away from work with or without job transfer
or restriction.
2
Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.

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
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
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. These data do not reflect the changes the
Occupational Safety and Health Administration made to its recordkeeping requirements effective
January 1, 2002: therefore estimates for these industries are not comparable to estimates in other
industries.
NOTE: Dashes indicate data that are not available. Because of rounding and data exclusion
of nonclassifiable responses, data may not sum to the totals.
