This section of the housing needs asseesment discusses the need for rental housing for migrant and seasonable farmworkers in Florida's counties. Farmworkers may or may not be accompanied by immediate family members, and unaccompanied farmworkers have different housing needs and incomes than accompanied farmworkers. Therefore, this analysis examines the number of accompanied and unaccompanied farmworker households, the incomes of each group, and the number of housing units appropraite to each group.
