       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 Selected occupations ranked in descending case count for private industry.
       3 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
       4 Data for Mining (Sector 21 in the North American Industry Classification System-- United States, 2007) 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.     
       5 Data for employers in rail transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.
