FATAL FARM ACCIDENTS IN NEW YORK: ESTIMATES OF THEIR COSTS

Timothy W. Kelsey

Northeastern Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics, 1991, vol. 20, issue 2, 6

Abstract: A telephone survey of all of the surviving families of people killed in farm accidents in New York between 1985 and 1987 (52 of 87 families interviewed, 60% response rate) found the average total annual present value of expected income foregone because of fatal farm accidents in New York is over $8.6 million (in 1987 dollars). Less than five years after the accidents, 67% of the families who operated the farms where the accidents occurred no longer operate them and 44% no longer live on the farms.
