Iowa Ranks Number One for Workers' Compensation System

1 comment

The 2009 State Report Card for Workers’ Compensation was recently released and Iowa ranked Number 1, according to the Des Moines Register. This rank means that the state’s system is the most effective system in the nation, as evaluated by the Work-Loss Data Institute in California. The Work-Loss Data Institute uses data provided through the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration to rank states.

The ranking is based on incidence rates, cases missing work, median disability duration, delayed recovery rate and a key condition of low back strain through 2006.

Minnesota was ranked second and also received an A-plus grade. The bottom ranks went to Wyoming, Rhode Island and New York and Illinois received the lowest rank.
