RB6_10   To be employed in industry an individual must be relatively healthy and active. How healthy is the agricultural workforce in Illinois? This research addresses this question using data from the US Census, Medical Expenditure Panel Survey, and the Center for Health Statistics. Results of data analysis indicate that more than one in five workers suffer from high cholesterol and 18% suffer from high blood pressure. The paper provides PUMA specific indicators on agricultural workers’ health. These indicators are baselines or benchmarks which Illinois agriculture could use in tracking their workers’ health status over time.
