Part B Yearly Data Comparison



This page explores EEOICPA Part B cases and claims, administrative costs and the amount of compensation paid to workers who were made ill or died due to working at Department of Energy nuclear weapons plants. Part B covers cancers caused by radiation, beryllium, and silica. The EECAP website provided additional information on Part B claims.

The data for these charts are taken from the OWCP Annual Reports to Congress for years 2001-2012, 2011-2013 EEOICPA Ombudsman's Report to Congress, Department of Labor's Congressional Budget Justifications, and the DOL Statistics webpage numbers for the end of the years 2011-2015.

Claims may report numbers for more than one worker as claims encompass survivor claims which may include multiple children of a deceased worker. Cases come closest to reporting the number of workers, although this is may not be exactly true. Also, DOL did a system change over in 2012 which causes the 2012 and 2013 numbers to be extremely strange in some instances. Because DOL has not reported data for both cases and claims for the same years, EECAP has used cases where DOL reported the most data and claims where they reported the most data this way.
