NASS Issues Correction to Agricultural Safety Report
April 27, 2012
Due to errors that were not detected before the April 5 release of the “2009 Agricultural Safety: Injuries to Youth on Farms,” the National Agriculture Statistics Service (NASS) is issuing a revised report. Although the errors impact specific data estimates, they do not impact the illustrated trend of decreasing injuries to youth on farms in United States between 2001 and 2009. The impacted data are identified in the report with asterisks. This report is a cooperative effort between NASS and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and is available at http://usda.mannlib.cornell.edu/MannUsda/viewDocumentInfo.do?documentID=1481.
