Resource Summary: This report summarizes the Uniform Data System (UDS) data about migrant and seasonal agricultural worker (MSAW) patients of Migrant Health Centers in 2020. This document reports how farmworkers utilized health care at Migrant Health Centers, trends in MSAW patient populations from 2011 to 2020, and new metrics reported with the outbreak of COVID-19.

Resource Details: Health Centers are community-based organizations that reach individuals and families that often lack access to quality health care, such as farmworkers. In 2020, a total of 977,744 migratory and seasonal agricultural workers and their family members were served by Health Centers. Although there was a decrease in MSAWs served in 2020 from an all-time high the previous year, the MSAW patients served still reflect an overall increase of 13% over the past decade.
