Biostatistics in agriculture.
NIOSH 1975 Jul; :192-206
A survey of the causes of death of males and females is used to give some estimates of the relative health of persons living in rural and urban areas, and hence of the relative health of farmers. There are differences in death rates for males and females, and the accident rates are consistently and significantly higher for male rural residents. Death rates for farmers and farm managers are compared with those for other occupations. Farmers and farm managers have higher death rates than others except laborers (except farm), craftsmen, and foremen and kindred. Generally rural places of residence are healthier than urban, and the health of rural populations appears related to the strength of the agricultural economy. (Contract No. 099-74-0098)
