Supplementary notes

Numerator excludes deaths to workers under the age of 16 years. For data prior to 2008, employment data in denominators are average annual estimates of employed civilians 16 years of age and over from the CPS, regardless of the number of hours worked. These data are supplemented by data for the resident military, which was supplied by the U.S. Census Bureau (1995-1998) and the Department of Defense (1999-2008). Starting with 2004 data, rates are taken directly from the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries. Revised annual data. Starting with 2008 data, employment data in denominators are based on hours.
* 2,886 fatalities due to the September 11 terrorist attacks are not included.
** Starting with 2008 data, fatal injury rates are based on hours, rather than employment, and consequently are not directly comparable with earlier data. Hours-based rates standardize the amount of exposure and are considered more accurate than employment-based rates. Employment- and hours-based rates will be similar for groups of workers who usually work full-time. Differences in these rates are more likely for groups of workers who have a high percentage of part-time workers, like younger workers. Hours worked data are provided by the Current Population Survey (CPS).
