An average of 848,000 persons 15 years of age and older did hired farmwork each week in 1992. Hired farmworkers were more likely to be male, Hispanic, younger, less educated, and never married. They continued to have lower median weekly earnings ($200) than all wage and salary workers ($380), and their earnings appeared to fall farther behind all wage and salary workers between 1990 and 1992. The Pacific region (Alaska, California, Hawaii, Oregon, and Washington) employed 26 percent of all U.S. hired farmworkers. This report examines their demographic and employment characteristics, using data from the Current Population Survey (CPS) earnings microdata file.
