Migrant Family Housing Center. Annual Operational Summary, January - December 1976.
California State Dept. of Employment Development, Sacramento. Migrant Services Section.
The Employment Development Department's Migrant Services Section provides temporary housing at reasonable cost for migrant farmworkers and their families. The Office of Migrant Services contracts with agencies of local government to manage programs of housing construction, operation and maintenance. Since 1965 migrant housing projects have been constructed at 25 locations in 14 agricultural counties throughout California. Thus, temporary housing is made available for up to 180 days per year to migrant families while they are employed in agriculture. Covering January through December 1976, this report presents tabular data on the characteristics of the migrant families occupying the 26 migrant housing centers. Given by center, the data pertain to: center occupancy; family size; age of family members; age of male and female family members; annual income by center and by family size; ethnic background; school years completed by persons 18 and over; number of families by length of stay, total days, and average stay; family home base; and operation and peak occupancy dates. In 1976, 87% of those families residing in these centers travelled with their children; the average family size was 5.4 persons; the average annual family income was $4,742; 79.8% were Mexicans while 17.4% were Mexican Americans; and 26.6% were from Texas while 40% were from Mexico.
