This document serves as a descriptive epidemiologic reference tool for the wholesale and retail trade (WRT) sector. As such, this document provides information on the factors affecting the occupational health of the WRT workforce. This document provides national surveillance data compiled from the Bureau of Labor Statistics' files. The information was collected and organized into a "chartbook" to highlight the extent and nature of occupational injuries, illnesses, and fatalities occurring within the WRT sector for the year 2005. The year 2005 serves as the birth and baseline year for the WRT NORA sector. The WRT Chartbook, consisting of 187 figures and 21 tables, is intended to be a resource for agencies, industry associations, labor unions, and other organizations, as well as employers, researchers, workers, and other individuals. Through narrative text, statistical tables, and charts, the WRT Chartbook describes the magnitude, distribution, and trends of the sector's occupational injuries, illnesses, and fatalities. The Chartbook data can be used to compare one or more WRT subsectors, industry groups, and/or industries with the overall "private sector" data, a form of benchmarking.
