Rates of fatal injuries to workers 15 to 19 years old for all industries and the agricultural production industry, 1992-1996 and 1997-2002.
Fatal Workplace Injuries in 2005: A Collection of Data and Analysis. Washington, DC: U.S. Department of Labor, Bulletin 2593, 2007 Oct; :26
For comparison purposes and to assess the trend in fatalities for young workers, rates from 1992 to 1996 (5 years) and from 1997 to 2002 (6 years) were calculated with the use of both CFOI injury data and hours-worked data from the Current Population survey. Although the overall industry rates were lower, during the 1997-2002 part of the study period for all workers aged 15 to 19 years, the rates for both agricultural production and its subindustries (crop production and livestock production) increased. For young workers in agricultural production, three of the five age groups had increased rates in the 1997-2002 period. The rate for 15-year-olds during that period was 24.1 pre 100,000 full-time equivalent workers, an 81% increase over their rate for the 1992-96 period. The rates for 16-and 19-year olds also increased.
