An online and paper knowledge, attitudes, and practices survey on ticks and tick-borne diseases (TBD) was distributed to farmers in Illinois during summer 2020 to spring 2022 (paper version titled Final Draft Farmer KAP_v.SoftCopy_Revised.docx). These are the raw data associated with that survey and the survey questions used (FarmerTickKAPdata.csv, data dictionary in Data Description.docx). We have added calculated values (columns 286 to end, code for calculation in FarmerKAPvariableCalculation.R), including: the tick knowledge score, TBD knowledge score, and total knowledge score, which are the sum of the total number of correct answers in each category, and score percent, which are the proportion of correct answers in each category.
