In this study cause-specific mortality of female farmers in Finland was examined by size of farm, by type of farm production, and by geographic area. It was shown that mortality of female farmers was higher for those with small farms. In particular, mortality due to cardiovascular diseases, diseases of the respiratory system and mortality due to accidents, poisonings and violence was slightly increased (statistically not significantly) among those with small farms. Assessed by type of farm production, the differences in mortality were small. Mortality differences among female farmers were smaller than among male farmers.
