Occupational Injuries and Deaths Among Younger Workers — United States, 1998–2007


[full-text, 28 pages]


Workers aged 15–24 years represent 14% of the U.S. labor force and are at highest risk for injury while on the job. To assess trends and help guide efforts to improve safety among younger workers, CDC’s National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health analyzed data from the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries and the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System occupational supplement for the period 1998–2007. This report summarizes the results of that analysis.
