Summary
This study explored the social and economic adjustment of Mexican-Americans to Michigan's socioeconomic environment, focusing on the urbanization process for farm workers who had migrated to Michigan from the American Southwest. Some specific areas covered by the interview were migratory background, geographic ties, voting behavior, employment and income patterns, and attitudes toward school, jobs, housing, family life, and outside activities. Questions were also asked about the respondents' attitudes toward politics and community participation, and any problems they may have encountered due to their current place of residence. Demographic variables provide information about the respondents' age, gender, and income. A bilingual interview schedule was used
