Agricultural statistics of the USA 1936

United States Government printing office, 1936

This volume presents information formerly published in the statistical section of the Yearbook of Agriculture. It brings together what seem from experience to be the most important agricultural statistics of the United States and of the world so far as the agriculture of this country is concerned. Those who need data for years earlier than are here shown may refer to earlier issues of the Yearbook. Current statistics comparable with those here presented can be obtained from periodicals published by the Department. When the word "Year book" alone appears in this volume, it refers to the Yearbook of Agriculture, published by this Department.

The crop and livestock reporting service estimates acreage of crops, numbers of livestock, and production, farm utilization, prices paid to producers, farm income from and farm value of crops, livestock, and livestock products.

Acreages for the year 1909 are as reported by the Bureau of the Census; acreages in 1919, 1924, and 1929 are based on the census supplemented by State enumerations. In the intercensal years, from 1910 to 1915, estimated acreages were obtained by applying estimated percentages of decrease or increase to the published acreage of the preceding year. The estimates from 1916 to 1918, 1920 to 1923, 1925 to 1928, and 1930 to 1935 are based on acreage changes from year to year as shown by a sample of over 2 percent of the crop acreages in each year, supplemented by State enumerations.

Yields per acre are estimates based on reports of one or more farmers in each agricultural township on the average yield per acre in their localities. For all crops except cotton and a few minor crops, yields from 1919 to 1935 have been adjusted to be comparable with the census yields of 1919, 1924, and 1929. For these same crops, revisions of acreage have been made for the period 1919 to 1928 essentially to the acreages reported by the censuses of 1920 and 1930. For cotton, both acreage and yield have been revised to the basis of the 1930 census. Production is acreage times the yield-per-acre figure. Linters are not included in cotton figures, unless so stated in the respective tables.

In this volume historical revisions prior to 1919 are shown for wheat, corn, oats, barley, cotton, and potatoes, by which the currently published estimates have been made consistent with the decennial census figures, supplemented by State enumerations. For other important crops, revised data will be published in future issues.

Estimates of farm stocks, farm sales, utilization, crop condition, and miscellaneous information concerning crops are based either upon sample data or upon estimates of crop reporters for their localities.
