(1) Economic loss from unintentional injuries. These estimates are not comparable from year to year.
(2) Preventable deaths from unintentional injuries.
(3) Age 16 and over, gainfully employed, including owners, managers and other paid employees, the self-employed, unpaid family workers and active duty resident military personnel.
(4) Adjusted to 2017 dollars by the Insurance Information Institute using the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Inflation Calculator.
(5) In 2008 the National Safety Council changed the method of calculating deaths per worker from employment-based rates to hours-based rates. As a result data prior to 2008 are not comparable to later data.
(6) The 2015 National Safety Council cost estimate model represents a complete redesign and is not comparable to previous cost estimates. The 2014 estimate should be considered a data break from previous years.
