Workers’ Compensation: Benefits, Coverage, and Costs, 2000 New Estimates, is the fifth in a series begun by the National Academy of Social Insurance to provide the only comprehensive national data on this largely state-run program. The study provides estimates of workers’ compensation payments—cash and medical—for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and federal program providing workers’ compensation.
This report includes revisions to previously published estimates for 1997 through 1999. These revised figures should be used in place of previously published data. Historical data displayed in the body of this report incorporate those revisions.
