Pesticide Poisoning Rates by State

The Acute Work-related Pesticide Poisoning Incidence Rate

Using data from the National Poison Data Systems (NPDS), we created a series of animated maps (click through below) to show the acute work-related pesticide poisoning incidence rate by state for each year during the period of 2006-2013*.

Data Source: Rates were calculated. Numerators were acute pesticide-associated illnesses and injuries captured by poison control centers and reported to the American Association of Poison Control Centers National Poison Data System (NPDS). Denominator data were employment statistics obtained from the Bureau of Labor Statistics - Current Population Survey.

*The maps update every other year, when data become available.
