1 Where more than one condition is claimed for, the table shows the highest tariff level that a claimant has been awarded for a single condition. 2 Data have been rounded to the nearest 5. "—" refers to a value of zero, while "*" refers to a negligible value (greater than zero, but less than five). Numbers may not add to totals because of rounding. 3 Under the AFCS, individuals have up to 5 years in which to make a claim. The figures shown in the table reflect the year in which the claim was decided, not necessarily the year in which the injury occurred.
