The purpose of the study was to estimate the death rates from occupational injuries in the province of Quebec for the period 1981 through 1988.
Worker's compensation files were used to ascertain numbers of deaths, which were used as the numerators in figuring the rates (it was estimated that these files reported 83% of the true number of deaths among men).
Annual average estimates of the labor force were used as denominators.
