*The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) developed NEISS to monitor injuries involving consumer products and to serve as a source for follow-up investigation of selected product-related injuries. CPSC collects all work-related injuries for NIOSH regardless of consumer product involvement.
† Keyword searches were conducted on the following narrative fields: business type, business name, occupation type, and injury description fields. Examples of keywords in each field include: business type—farm, orchard, fruit, and grain; business name—farm, nursery, landscape, and veterinary; occupation type—farm; and comment fields—farm, tractor, cattle, cow, livestock, tobacco, and landscape.
‡ An FTE is defined as 2000 hours of work during a calendar year and was calculated from the CPS microdata files because published estimates were not available.
