In addition, the rate sheets include historical information for prior rates and for what period they were applicable. The rate sheets provide information about how many weeks each part of the body is worth for reference in calculating the permanency of various injuries. Finally, the rate sheets usually provide other miscellaneous information such as the permanent and total disability rate, special amputation information, and mileage or other jurisdictional information.
