Ball State University 2014 Study on Migrant Workers

Another study shows that “migrancy” is down.  This study from Ball State University discusses trends including a continuing decline in migrancy. The summary also says the percentage of female migrant workers has increased and also discusses more issues that deserve further study.  There may be a contradiction in that while documented workers still migrate, undocumented workers appear less migratory due to risk of being apprehended, but then one of the conclusions is that status normalization might cause even less migrancy and thus make the labor situation worse.  See the study here: 2014 Ball State Study – Why Do Fewer Agricultural Workers Migrate Now
