Note: Days-away-from-work cases include those which result in days away from work with or without restricted work activity.

Due to rounding and nonclassifiable responses, data in the "Male" and "Female" columns may not sum to data in the "Total" column.

To calculate the percent out of the number of nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses that occurred in a particular industry type that involved males or females, divide the number of males or females who were involved in nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses that occurred in a particular industry type by the total number of nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses that occurred in that particular industry type and multiply the result by 100. Example: Calculate the percent of males who were involved in nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses out of the total number of nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses that occurred in manufacturing. This calculation would be: 238,200/317,300=.751 and .751x100=75.1%
