Announcements: Childhood Agricultural Injury Survey Online
The Childhood Agricultural Injury Survey (CAIS) of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is a critical source of national injury data for youths aged <20 years on farms in the United States. NIOSH is introducing the release of e-tables to make these data publically accessible on the Internet. These e-tables present CAIS data for the years 2001, 2004, 2006, and 2009, and Minority Farm Operator Childhood Agricultural Injury Survey (M-CAIS) data for the years 2000, 2003, and 2008. NIOSH plans to add additional years of CAIS and M-CAIS data when they become available.
CAIS and M-CAIS injury and demographic data for youths who live on, work on, or visit farms can be accessed online from the NIOSH Childhood Agricultural Injury Prevention Initiative page at http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/childag. This page also provides links to NIOSH childhood agriculture-related publications, reports of childhood agricultural fatality investigations, extramural funding and research opportunities, and other childhood agricultural injury prevention resources.
