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 may not sum to the totals.

To calculate the percent out of the number of nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses that occurred in a particular industry type that affected certain body parts, divide the number in a certain body part category affected by 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 the particular industry type and multiply the result by 100. Example: Calculate the percent of nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses that occurred in manufacturing that affected the head. This calculation would be: 22,800/317,300=.072 and .072x100=7.2%
