Farmers "disappeared" by Census Bureau

Read this somewhere recently and can only conclude that I must have read it after I was in bed and without my notebook.

Apparently, in 1990, the word "farmer" was removed from the occupations list of the U.S. Census Bureau and replaced with "agricultural worker".

That should have cut all Vermont farmers to the quick, and likely did when they found out about it.
