Paid workers' compensation claims per 100 full-time-equivalent (FTE) workers

The number of paid claims is the number calculated above. The number of full-time-equivalent (FTE) workers covered by workers' compensation is estimated as total nonfederal unemployment insurance (UI) covered employment (from the Department of Employment and Economic Development) times average annual hours per employee (from the annual Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses, conducted jointly by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and state labor departments) divided by 2,000 (annual hours per full-time worker). Nonfederal UI covered employment is used because there is no data about workers' compensation covered employment.
