SELECTED INDICATORS IN WORKERS’ COMPENSATION: A REPORT CARD FOR CALIFORNIANS
As part of its mandate to conduct a continuing examination of California’s health and safety and workers’ compensation systems, the California Commission on Health and Safety and Workers’ Compensation (CHSWC) is pleased to present an updated report, “Selected Indicators in Workers’ Compensation: A Report Card for Californians,” summarizing key information.
This Report Card is a compilation of data from and for the entire workers’ compensation community. It is intended to be a reference for monitoring the ongoing system and serve as an empirical basis for proposing improvements.
The Report Card will be continually updated as needed. The online Report Card, available at the CHSWC website, , will reflect the latest available information.
This information was compiled by CHSWC from data derived from many sources, including:
