SELECTED INDICATORS IN WORKERS’ COMPENSATION: A REPORT CARD FOR CALIFORNIANS
As shown in the following graph, the proportion or mix of the types of case-opening documents received by the DWC varied during the 1990s. Applications initially dropped from about 80 percent of the total in 1990 to less than 60 percent in 1991, reflecting increases in both original Stips and C&Rs. The proportion of Applications was steady from 1991 to 1993, rising again through 2003, and declining slightly from 2003 to 2005. The proportion of original (case-opening) Stips and original C&Rs declined slightly from 1999 to 2003, and then increased from 2003 to 2005.
