1. Rates are shown as the number of cases per 100 full-time-equivalent (FTE) workers. An FTE worker is equal to 2,000 annual hours of work. The figures should be viewed with caution, because some of the annual fluctuations, especially in the smaller sectors, may represent sampling variation rather than actual changes in case incidence. Due to OSHA recordkeeping changes, data for 2002 is not comparable with data from earlier years.
