Summary

The number of seasonal domestic agricultural migrants in each county of the United States is presented graphically on this 26 by 40 inch map. Public health and other service agencies may use it and accompanying tables to plan program adjustments necessitated by the worker influx. The data are confined to domestic workers and their accompanying dependents who engage in farm work which requires them to move far enough to prevent returning home at night. It does not include legally contracted foreign nationals. Since 1960, there has been an overall decrease in migrant workers due largely to mechanization. Increases are in counties formerly served by braceros. The peak influx of migrants and the span of crop seasons are shown for each county in tabular form. Travel patterns illustrating the northward movement, the home base areas, and the racial ancestry of the migrants are shown on an inset map. (jm)
