Stats, stats and more stats for the curious

Over at the Colorado Division of Workers Compensation website they post some very interesting information. The entire workers comp statutory law is there. The rules issued by the Division of Workers Compensation are there as are forms, publications and various other things. On one page numerous statistics are provided with links to the source of those stats. For example nearly 25% of all claims are contested at the beginning and stay contested. That forces the claimant to either give up or seek a hearing. Anyway here is the link to peruse that page for stats which were noted by the Division. I am especially intrigued by statistics which make you wonder what is going on. When the population goes up but claims and hearings go down it does make you think about it.
