Of the 4,526 strikes that occurred during the five years, particulars concerning the number of employees thrown out of work were reported for 3,428 strikes. In these strikes 1,852,193 employees were thrown out of work. Of the latter, 824,631, or 44.5 per cent, were in strikes which resulted in favor of employees; 382,545, or 20.7 per cent, in strikes which resulted in favor of employers; 610,295, or 32.9 per cent, in compromised strikes; and 34,722, or 1.9 per cent, in strikes the results of which were indefinite or unsettled.

During the two years 1894 and 1895 there were 1,937 strikes and lockouts, in 1,847 of which 588,003 employees were thrown out of work.

Of the 1,235,184 strikers and employees locked out, 356,789, or 28.9 per cent, were in disputes which resulted in favor of employees; 491,316, or 39.8 per cent, in disputes which resulted in favor of employers; 377,921, or 30.6 per cent, in disputes which were compromised; and 9,158, or 0.7 per cent, in disputes the results of which were indefinite or unsettled. There were, in addition, 549,760 other employees thrown out of work by these disputes.

Of the total disputes during the first period, 1889 to 1893, 2,944 resulted in an aggregate loss of 66,310,278 working-days. In addition to the strikes during this period, there were 113 lockouts, in 61 of which 129,348 employees were thrown out of work. Of the 1,937 strikes and lockouts during the second period, 1894 and 1895, 1,592 resulted in an aggregate loss of 14,864,748 working-days.

The statistics of strikes and lockouts according to industries could not be grouped for the whole period as has been done in the case of other countries. The statistics for the years 1889 to 1892 were not in such form that they could be shown by industries. The two following tables therefore show for each year and group of industries from 1893 to 1895 the number and results of strikes and lockouts and the number of employees thrown out of work in strikes and lockouts for which they were reported and similar statistics, together with the total working-days lost, from 1896 to 1905:
