The 25th annual workers’ compensation report produced by the Academy provides the only comprehensive data on workers’ compensation benefits, coverage, and employer costs for the nation, the states, the District of Columbia, and federal programs. This is the first annual report to include data reflecting the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, with a five-year study period from 2016 to 2020. The report includes 19 tables, 7 figures, and 5 appendices detailing outcomes related to workers’ compensation benefits, costs, and coverage.
This report gathers evidence on the extent of economic insecurity in the United States today and provides an array of policy options that may help achieve the noble vision of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s 1935 Committee on Economic Security to assure “an adequate income to each human being in childhood, youth, middle age, or old age—in sickness or in health.”
