In 1976 the Bureau of Labor Statistics began collecting data from selected states' workers' compensation files. The data include information on fatalities within three-digit occupations. The fatality data were combined with information on employment within three-digit occupations to produce estimates of mortality within 347 occupations. Loggers and asbestos workers appear to have the most dangerous blue collar jobs and airplane pilots the most dangerous white collar jobs.
