Fact Sheets covering a variety of topics of general interest relating to mining operations, employees, fatalities, nonfatal lost-time injuries, and occupational illness are available for each of the major mining sectors (coal, metal, nonmetal, stone, and sand and gravel). Fact sheets for underground/surface mining and contractors are also available. See Additional Information.

Data files for employment, coal production, accidents, and injuries are available in SPSS and dBase IV formats. These files cover the time period 1983 through 2010.
