A national profile of agricultural accidents is necessary if an effective reduction program is to be achieved. To produce the profile, accident statistics are obtained by standardized techniques in a total of 22 states. A priority list of problems is based on severity and frequency of accident, and a search technique is developed using up to 20 variables. Family members account for 87 percent of all accidents, and falls are the most frequent cause of injury. The studies provide information so that evaluation, countermeasures, and education may be achieved. (Contract No. 099- 74-0098)
