Case and Demographic Data

The most serious nonfatal occupational injury and illness cases involve lost worktime. There were 21,310 nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses involving days away from work in Missouri private industry in 2006. This number was not significantly changed from the number of cases in 2005. One measure of the severity of lost worktime cases is the percent distribution. A second measure of the severity of lost worktime cases is the median number of lost workdays. The median days away from work designates the point at which half the cases involved more days and half the cases involved fewer days. The median days away from work due to nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses in Missouri private industry were six days in 2006. There had been eight median days in 2005, 2004, and 2003.

Demographic information provides details of characteristics of the injured or ill worker. This information includes occupation, gender, age of worker, occupational group, length of service with employer at the time of the incident, and race or ethnic origin. Four case characteristics are used to describe each nonfatal occupational injury or illness. The nature of the injury or illness identifies the principal characteristics, or physical effects, of the injury or illness. The part of body affected is identified for the involved worker. The source of injury or illness identifies the object, substance, bodily motion, or exposure that directly produced or inflicted the injury or illness. The event or exposure describes the manner in which the injury or illness was produced or inflicted by the source of the injury or illness.
