Newspaper clippings and personal interview surveys have been the primary methods for collecting agricultural accident data dating to the early 1940's. Accident data forms and survey procedures were standardized during the late 1960's and many statewide surveys were conducted throughout the 1970's. 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 procedures of personalized mail survey research may serve as a cornerstone to an efficient, long term method of agricultural accident data collection.
