Agricultural Statistics is published annually for the purpose of presenting up-to-date series of statistics concerning Agriculture and closely related subjects. For the most part, the data included herein were prepared in the U.S. Department of Agriculture, or compiled by the staff for official use. A few of the tables were prepared in other Government agencies. A particular effort has been made to meet the diverse needs and interests of the general public for a reliable reference book on agricultural production, supplies, consumption, facilities, prices, costs, and returns. Persons needing daily, weekly, and monthly information are served by the current reports of the agencies which prepare the summary statistics appearing in this book and to which the tables are credited. Research workers and others will usually wish to obtain direct from the agencies the latest facts bearing on particular problems associated with data contained in the tables included here. Inquiries concerning more current or more detailed data, the statistical methodology used, past and prospective revisions, etc., should be addressed directly to the agency responsible, shown at the bottom of each table.

The historical series in this volume have been generally limited to data beginning with 1944 or 1945 or to the most recent 10 years. The coverage and the organization of the book is much the same as in the 1960 issue. Many of the tables in this issue carry a reference in the source note to the table in Agricultural Statistics, 1957, where comparable data for earlier years can be found.

Agricultural data for Alaska and Hawaii are included in the United States totals in the appropriate tables, where indicated, particulary in chapters VIII, IX, and X. Only limited information is available in Alaskan agricultural production. Production for Hawaii is generally given in separate tables in the commodity chapters, or in chapter XI.
