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, over 61,000 workers have been interviewed. The survey's findings are made available through periodic reports and presentations. Additionaly, a NAWS public access data (NAWSPAD) file and several documents describing the survey are available for download on this site, and an external Web site allows quick access to many of the survey's demographic and health findings.
