    For industries, annual changes ranged from a decline of 5.3% for workers in public administration-for example, justice, public order, and safety workers-to an increase of 2.6% for workers in the wholesale trade.

    By comparison, the annual decline over all industries and occupations was 3.1%. In many industries and occupations, an effect modification of annual trends by the age of the worker was also found with the oldest workers experiencing either no decline or a significant increase in rates of fatal injuries.
