The writer is of the opinion that the economic status of the adults of Marion County is below that of adults in other sections of the state, yet he is unable to pin-point any set of factors that may be responsible for such alleged status. The writer believes further that factors that have influenced the economic status of the respondents in question may have been a set of common factors that are at least State wide, if not County wide.

This investigation embraces also the influence that Vocational Education in Agriculture has had upon the economic status of adult life in Marion County. Data will be examined to determine to what extent Vocational Education in Agriculture is influential at the present time in aiding adults. A critical analysis of survey schedules, brochures and releases will be examined to try and determine the exact relationship that exists between technical agricultural assistance and the economic status of the subjects in question.
