Note:  "----" indicates data not available.
Although deaths may appear irrelevant to disability tables, they provide incidence for extreme incidents and may be instructive for planning and prevention.

To calculate the percent of fatal occupational injuries in a state involving a certain event, divide the number of fatal occupational injuries resulting from a particular type of event by the sum of all event types resulting in fatal occupational injuries in the state and multiply the result by 100. Example: Calculate the percent of fatal occupational injuries in West Virginia resulting from transportation incidents. This calculation would be: 23/(23+5+9+3+4)=.5227 and .5227x100=52.27%
