Abstract

The rate of unintentional death for persons living in rural areas is approximately twice that of persons living in our largest cities (75 per 100,000 population v 37 per 100,000). For comparison purposes, 'rural' is defined as those population centers with fewer than 50,000 persons. Two percent of the population of the United States live and work on farms, with 'farm populations' being defined by the US Department of Agriculture as persons living in rural territory on places which reported sales of $1,000/yr of agricultural products. Although 'rural' and 'farm' are not interchangeable terms, many of the injuries incurred are similar, and it would appear that the disproportion in morbidity and mortality is due to several unique features of the rural environment.
