    Article - En anglais


    To evaluate farm-related deaths among children in California and to identify specify risk factors, this study used death certificate tapes to identify 40 farm-related deaths among children under age 15 in California for 1980 to 1989.

    Mortality rates and odds ratios for cause-specific unintentional farm deaths were calculated.

    While California's farm-related mortality rate was lower than those in the midwestern states studied, the rate for Hispanic boys was 70% higher than that for non-Hispanics.

    The odds of death from machinery (81.3), animals (10.1), electricity (5.2), and nontraffic motor vehicles (3.4) were significantly greater than those in nonfarm locations ; those from drowning were significantly lower (2.0).

    Specific factors associated with the lower California mortality rate need to be identified.
