The National Agricultural Workers Survey

The National Agricultural Workers Survey (NAWS) is an employment-based, random- sample survey of U.S. crop workers that collects demographic, employment, and health data in face-to-face interviews.

The survey began in Federal Fiscal Year (FY) 1989; since then, nearly 70,000 workers have been interviewed. The survey's findings are available in reports, presentations, tables, and public data files.

The latest national summary report, which is based on 2015-2016 data, is available on this site and can also be accessed at ETA's Research and Evaluation Publication Database.
