       1 Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction.
       2 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
       3 Data for Mining (Sector 21 in the North American Industry Classification System-- United States, 2012) include establishments not governed by the Mine Safety and Health
         Administration 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.     
       4 Data for employers in rail transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.  
       5 Race and ethnicity data do not add to total.  Some cases may be counted as both multi-race and Hispanic and other race.
