Agricultural Injury Facts & Trends

Non-fatal Agricultural Injury Trends


In 2019, the GPCAH Planning core received a cooperative agreement with the Iowa Department of Public Health to review the registry of traumatic injury cases in Iowa to understand how Midwestern farmers are hurt on the job.  Medical emergencies entered into the trauma registry from 2014 through 2017 were used for this analysis.

Agricultural Fatality Facts and Trends


In 2011, the GPCAH Surveillance Core established an agreement to analyze the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries, an occupational fatality surveillance system maintained by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Our agreement includes data for agricultural injuries in 12 Midwestern states between the years of 2005 and 2012.

In addition to the report, we have made the PowerPoint Presentation, “Fatal Occupational Injuries in Selected Agricultural Industries” available for public viewing.
