OBJECTIVE: To compare mortality from the leading causes of death in farmers and in all other workers.

METHODS: Mortality by cause of death was calculated from a longitudinal study in which 9.5 million men were followed up for 10 years. We estimated the contribution of the causes of death to the difference in all-cause mortality.

RESULTS: Most of the excess in all-cause mortality in farmers was due to cardiovascular diseases, digestive diseases and external causes, which contributed 22.3%, 17.2% and 53.3% to the difference in all-cause mortality, respectively. Traffic accidents and suicide were the main contributors to the excess mortality from external causes.

CONCLUSIONS: Farmers are a vulnerable group in terms of health, thus there is a need to identify the factors that influence excess mortality from cardiovascular diseases, digestive diseases, traffic accidents and suicide.
