(2) 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.
(3) Data for employers in rail transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.
(4) Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.

Notes:
Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction. Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines, data may be too small to be displayed. Because of rounding and data exclusion of nonclassifiable responses, data may not sum to the totals.
