1  OPM provided OSHA with the most recent available data on the average number of employees for each department and independent agency for the period October 1, 2008 through December 31, 2008. [ back to table ]

2a,b,c  The employment totals for the Marine Corps, Homeland Security, and Veterans Affairs were obtained from OPM's Fedscope website and include the most recent available data for the period December 2008. [ back to Marine Corps] [ back to Homeland Security] [ back to Veterans Affairs]

3  The Total and Lost Time case numbers are derived from claims submitted to OWCP with "case create" dates of October 1, 2008 through March 31, 2009 (less denied cases with an adjudication status of D2, D3, D4, or D5). [ back to table ]

4  The Total Case Rate (TCR) and Lost Time Case Rate (LTCR) are calculated separately by dividing the number of total/lost time cases by the number of employees. The resulting number is then multiplied by 100, for a rate per 100 employees. [ back to table ]

5  The "projected" end-of-year rates are calculated by multiplying the Quarter 2 total and lost time case rates by two for the annualized rates. [ back to table ]
