Greenhouse and Nursery Crops--Value of Production, Trade, and Consumption: 1980 to 2005

The Statistical Abstract files are distributed by the US Census Department as Microsoft Excel files. These files have data mixed with notes and references, multiple tables per sheet, and, worst of all, the table headers are not easily matched to their rows and columns.

A few files had extraneous characters in the title. These were corrected to be consistent. A few files have a sheet of crufty gibberish in the first slot. The sheet order was shuffled but no data were changed.

The tables that were changed (this is table 828):

0166 0257 0362 0429 0445 0446 0459 0461 0462 0464 0465 0466 0467

This dataset consists of a table of 106 rows and 9 columns.

In thousands of dollars (3,418,788 represents $3,418,788,000), except as noted. Includes all floriculture and nursery crops except seeds and food crops grown under cover. Domestic production based on grower wholesale receipts. Domestic consumption equals supply minus exports. Supply equals domestic production plus imports.


  1. Based on Census Bureau estimates of households and population.
  2. Production, imports, and exports are computed as the difference between corresponding values
    in greenhouse and nursery crops and values in floriculture crops.
  3. Floriculture crops include flowering, bedding, foliage, and herbaceous plants,
    cut greens and flowers, and propagative material.
  4. Includes potted flowering plants, foliage plants for indoor or patio use, bedding and garden plants, cut
    cultivated greens, and propagative material. Domestic production is the difference between domestic production
    of all floriculture crops and that of cut flowers. Imports and exports are the difference between imports and
    exports of all floriculture crops and those of cut flowers.
