1 Classified according to the Standard Industrial Classification Manual, 1987. 2 Based on the 1992 BLS Occupational Injury and Illness Classification Manual. 3 Includes highway, nonhighway, air, water, and rail fatalities. 4 Includes violence by persons, self-inflicted injury, and assaults by animals. 5 Includes fatalities at all establishments categorized as Mining (Division B) in the Standard Industrial Classification Manual, 1987 Edition, including establishments not governed by the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) rules and reporting, such as those in Oil and Gas Extraction. 6 Includes fatalities to workers employed by governmental organizations regardless of industry.

NOTE: Totals for major categories may include subcategories not shown separately. Percentages may not add to totals because of rounding. There were less than 5 fatalities for which there was insufficient information to determine a specific industry classification, though a distinction between private and government was made for each. Dashes indicate no data reported or data that do not meet publication criteria. n.e.c. means "not elsewhere classified."
