Understanding Statistics

The Estimating Programs - Labor

Multiple frame sample surveys are used to collect data on the number and types of agricultural workers and weekly wage rates. These data series are generally compatible with employment and wage series constructed by other Federal agencies.

The total agricultural work force includes self-employed workers, unpaid workers, and hired employees. Hired workers are classified by the principal type of work they do -- field, livestock, supervisory, or other activities.
