Abstract
In 2007, there were approximately 2.08 million farms in the United States. Over 1.12 million youth lived on farms in 2006 with 42 % of youth living in the Midwest region, 39% in the South region and the remaining living in the West (13%) and Northeast (6%) regions. More than half of all household youth performed work or chores on the farm in 2001. Only 30% of farm households with children younger than eight years reported having an enclosed, fenced off play area in 2006. The National Safety Council's 2008 edition of Injury facts ranks agriculture as our nation's most dangerous industry with 28.7 deaths per 100,000 adult workers.
