The National Safety Council's farm survey data base represents a unique resource for research on farm-related injuries. It contains general descriptive data about the "who, what, when, where, and how" of injuries sustained by persons who lived or worked on farms. It contains detailed data on the circumstances of selected farm injuries. It includes data on all injuries to farm residents, whether work-related or not. It also contains estimates of the number of hours farm residents and their hired help were exposed to farm work and its attendant hazards.
