A personalized mail survey was sent to 1500 Oregon farmers and ranchers. The subjects were selected by the Oregon Agricultural Statistic Service. A response rate of 81.8% was obtained. Injury rates for the subjects are two to three times higher than the rates published by the National Safety Council in 1982. It is unclear if this difference reflects an increase in injuries or is an artifact to the survey procedure.
