Abstract

Since the early 1940s, newspaper clippings and personal interview surveys have been the primary methods for collecting agricultural accident data. Accident data forms and survey procedures were standardized during the late 1960s, and many statewide surveys were conducted throughout the 1970s. In recent years, the implementation of the standardized survey procedure has become difficult and appears to no longer be viable. A personalized mail survey approach was recently tested in Pennsylvania with excellent results. The personalized mail survey research procedures may become an efficient, long-term method of agricultural accident data collection.
