BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
The California Workers’ Compensation Institute this month released an online application to support interactive analyses and comparisons of COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 claims.
The new tool features integrated data from CWCI, the Bureau of Labor and Statistics and the California Division of Workers’ Compensation, with detailed information on almost 600,000 reported claims for the first six months of accident years 2019 and 2020, including 14,470 COVID-19 claims from accident year 2020, according to a statement.
Oakland, California-based CWCI say the application will analyze claim counts by month with the ability to segment and filter results by industry, region, injured worker demographics and injury characteristics and denial rates for COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 claims by month.
