Abstract
Respiratory Disease in Agriculture: Mortality and Morbidity Statistics presents summary tables and figures of occupational respiratory disease surveillance data focusing on various occupationally relevant respiratory diseases for the Agriculture, Forestry, and Fishing industries. The report has seven major sections that provide the following data: (1) highlights and data usage limitations; (2) demographic statistics for agricultural workers; (3) mortality statistics for agricultural workers, including by sex and race/ ethnicity; (4) morbidity statistics for agricultural workers, including by sex, race/ethnicity, smoking status, and source of data; (5) recommendations to fill research gaps for respiratory disease in agriculture; and (6) appendices with descriptions of data sources, methods, and other supplementary information. Data contained in this report originate from various publications, reports, data files, and tabulations provided by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) and the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Details on the major data sources and on the methods used to compute specific statistics can be found in Appendices A and B, respectively. Interpreted with appropriate caution, the information contained in this report can help to establish priorities for research and respiratory disease prevention in agriculture.
