Morgantown, WV: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, DHHS (NIOSH) Publication No. 2005-147, 2005 Jul; :1-273
This document presents the national M-CAIS results for racial minority farm operations in an easily accessible statistical abstract format. A racial minority farm operation includes farms operated by Blacks, Native Americans, Asians, or operators of "other" races. "Other races" includes operators native to or of ancestry from Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central or South America [USDA, 1999]. This document includes injuries to all youth on racial minority operated farms regardless of the race or ethnicity of the injured youth (i.e., a white youth who worked and was injured on a racial minority farm would be included in these statistics). Future documents, in a similar format, will provide national data for Hispanic farm operations, regional data for racial minority farm operations, and regional data for Hispanic farm operations. Due to the quantity of data, no attempt was made to interpret the results presented. A list of NIOSH documents and publications that do provide interpretation of these and other childhood farm injury data is provided in Appendix A. It is hoped that the data presented here will be used by public health and safety professionals, engineers, and other groups working in the area of childhood farm safety and health to help in their intervention programs and injury control research. The estimates, prevalence rates, and incidence rates presented in this statistical abstract were calculated by NIOSH and are presented with the approval of USDA, NASS. Access to all M-CAIS data, files, or additional estimates from the M-CAIS data, are subject to the approval of USDA, NASS.
