PESTICIDE ILLNESS & INJURY SURVEILLANCE
The Acute Work-related Pesticide Poisoning Incidence Rate
The animated map shows the acute work-related pesticide poisoning incidence rate (per 100,000 employed persons) by state during the period of 2006-2013 using the instructions for the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) Indicator #11. The number of states with a rate of acute work-related pesticide poisoning of 3.89/100,000 employed persons or higher has progressively decreased during this time period. In 2006, 10 states had a rate at this level or higher. In 2013, only 5 states did. In 2013, the states with a rate of acute work-related pesticide poisoning of 3.89/100,000 employed persons or higher were Nebraska, New Mexico, Vermont, Virginia, and Wyoming.
