Abstract
The workers's compensation system in California as it applies to agriculture and the farm accident survey as carried out in California are described. The analysis of data attempts to ascertain strengths, weakness, and differences in the reported data so that meaningful comparisons can be made. Month of report of injury, type of farm reporting, nature and type of injury and body part involved all show significant differences in distribution between the two data sources. Worker's compensation reported higher injury and illness rates than the farm accident survey, with the illness rates substantially higher. The comparison of family workers and hired workers shows differences in accident characteristics. Family workers are older and show different natures of injury and causes of injury than the employees. (Contract No 210-76-0153)
