National Agricultural Workers Survey

Public Data Codebooks and Questionnaire

Two codebooks support the NAWSPAD file:

These codebooks contain information on the number of observations for each response code by two-year periods (e.g., 1989-1990, 1991-1992, etc., through 2015-2016).

Variables in the codebooks match those in the questionnaire that was administered in fiscal year 2016.

English and Spanish versions of the fiscal year 2016 questionnaire, in hard copy and electronic format, can be obtained by contacting Daniel Carroll, Office of Policy Development and Research, Employment and Training Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Ave NW, Room N-5641, Washington, DC 20210; email:; phone: 202-693-2795.

The fiscal year 2016 questionnaire, codebooks, and NAWSPAD Variables and Labels 2016 spreadsheet should be reviewed prior to analyzing data.
