Occupational health studies of agricultural workers have generally excluded migrant and seasonal farmworkers, and this population experiences a high degree of health risk from agricultural exposures. A survey of dermatologic disorders among migrant and seasonal farmworkers will be used to illustrate this point. Data from a recent field study are presented to illustrate epidemiologic approaches to studying dermatologic disorders in farmworkers and risk factors for dermatitis. This study suggests there is generally a high health risk to agricultural workers and this study also suggests methods to investigate other acute and chronic diseases among agricultural workers.
