Effects of self-rated disability and subjective health on job separation

Farm operators' total income, 2000

Average total income of farm operators rose 8.9% in 2000 to reach $43,558, the largest percentage gain since 1995, according to analysis of data from personal income tax returns. This growth was the result of a rise in both average net farm operating income (before depreciation) (+13.7%) and average off-farm income (+5.4%). Average net farm operating income totalled $19,103, or almost 44% of total income, gaining two percentage points from 1999.
