Calculations

Fatal injury rates depict the risk of incurring a fatal occupational injury and can be used to compare risk among worker groups with varying employment levels. Since employment data are not collected by CFOI, fatal injury rates are calculated using CPS and LAUS data. Each state rate in the table above represents the number of fatal occupational injuries per 100,000 full-time equivalent workers and was calculated as: Fatality rate = (NS/EHS) x 200,000,000 where NS = number of fatal work injuries in the state EHS = total hours worked by all employees in the state during the calendar year 200,000,000 = base for 100,000 equivalent full-time workers (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year) State rates by industry were imputed by using national-level “average hours” and “at work” information from CPS to calculate the average annual number of hours for each employee, since these data are not available at the state level. EHS (total hours worked by all employees in the state during the calendar year) was calculated as: EHS = HWN x ES where ES = State employment (from LAUS) HWN = average annual number of hours for each employee at the national level (from CPS)
