Abstract Agriculture is one of the most hazardous industries in Minnesota and rural Minnesota adolescents are frequently employed in both agricultural and non-agricultural jobs. Previous surveillance studies of agricultural work and injury have generally been limited to emergency room data, surveys of only farm families, or inclusion of only paid work activities. Consequently, the broader scope of work experiences, injuries and illness among adolescents in rural or agricultural communities has been less well characterized. The purpose of this study was to develop and implement surveillance methods to more broadly characterize injury, work, and asthma occurrence among rural Minnesota adolescents. The specific aims of this study were: (1) determine the magnitude and scope of agricultural injury and asthma among adolescents in 9th-12th grades in rural Minnesota; (2) describe the change in work hours between 9th and 12th grades in terms of total work hours, and the shift in work hours between agribusiness, traditional family farm work, and non-farm work; (3) evaluate the reliability of adolescent self-reported information about agricultural and non-agricultural work hours and injury experiences; and (4) use a cohort analysis to calculate rate ratios for risk factors for injury and to facilitate planning for future prevention and intervention activities.
