Abstract
Approximately 32,800 agricultural-related injuries occurred to children or adolescents under the age of 20 who lived on, worked on, or visited a farm operation in 1998. The injuries occurred at a rate of 1.7 injuries per every 100 farms. The findings are based on a random telephone survey of 50,000 farm operations conducted by the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) for the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), an agency of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Farm operators were asked questions on any injuries to youth less than 20 years of age that occurred on their farm in 1998. An injury was defined as any condition occurring on the farm operation resulting in at least 4 hours of restricted activity.
