||Tractor-related injuries are among the most severe of agricultural injuries. This study on tractor-related injuries identified the incidence, consequences and potential risk factors for tractor injuries among 3,765 agricultural households in a five-state region. Demographic, injury and exposure data were collected during 1999 using telephone interviews. A causal model served as a basis for survey design, data analysis and interpretation of results. The overall injury rate was 9.6 events per 1000 persons per year. Increased personal risk was observed for males and prior agricultural injury experience. Compared with ages 35-44, decreased risks were identified for younger age groups.
