USDA - The Census of Agriculture

Added By Infochimps

The Census of Agriculture is the leading source of facts and figures about American agriculture. Conducted every five years, the Census provides a detailed picture of U.S. farms and ranches and the people who operate them. It is the only source of uniform, comprehensive agricultural data for every state and county in the United States.

Census data is used to make decisions about many things that directly impact farmers, including:

  • community planning
  • store/company locations
  • availability of operational loans and other funding
  • location and staffing of service centers
  • farm programs and policies
