The Injuries, Illnesses, and Fatalities (IIF) program provides annual information on the rate and number of work-related injuries, illnesses, and fatal injuries, and how these statistics vary by incident, industry, geography, occupation, and other characteristics. These data are collected through the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII) and the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI).

Important note on future data: Beginning with the 2016 reference year, the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII) will present a single release of national data on November 9, 2017. This release will include industry counts and rates along with case circumstances and worker characteristics for cases requiring days away from work; in previous years, these data were released separately. State data will be released on November 28, 2017. A similar schedule will be followed in subsequent years.

As of October 1, 2016, BLS is piloting researcher access to the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses restricted data at Federal Statistical Research Data Centers (FSRDCs), in addition to restricted data files for selected statistical research projects onsite at the BLS national office in Washington, DC. More information on accessing SOII data can be found at https://www.bls.gov/rda/home.htm.
