Chapter 3 summarized the workers’ compensation program in 136 nations. This chapter will summarize the benefits for subgroups of these 136 nations categorized according to (1) six continents, (2) five income statuses, and (3) three security systems. The objective is to investigate the relationship, if any, between any of these characteristics and a nation’s workers’ compensation system. For example, one would expect higher income nations to cover more workers, provide more generous benefits, and incur higher costs.
