In this study 100 married farm laborers in Cherokee County, Iowa were interviewed in 1949. For comparison, 100 married farm operators were randomly selected from age categories so that their ages were comparable to the ages of the married hired men. The same questions were asked of both groups. Similarities and differences are presented.
Married hired men on farms in Cherokee County showed a number of significant differences when they were compared with an equal number of farm operators of the same age.
