Abstract
During 2000, there were 530 agricultural-related injuries that occurred to youth under the age of 20 who lived on, worked on, or visited a farm operated by an individual from a racial minority group. The four racial minority groups are Asian, Black, Native American and Other. During the same year, there were 366 agricultural-related injuries that occurred to youth under the age of 20 who lived on, worked on, or visited a farm operated by an individual who is Hispanic. Hispanic information is presented separately because it is considered to be an ethnic group and not a race. However, there is overlap between the racial and Hispanic information (i.e., an operator may be both a racial and an ethnic minority, and be represented in both estimates). These findings are the result of a telephone survey of 50,000 minority farms and ranches across the U.S. conducted by the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) for the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). Farm operators were asked questions on any injuries to youth less than 20 years of age that occurred on their farm in the year 2000. An injury was defined as any condition occurring on the farm operation resulting in at least 4 hours of restricted activity.
