Ag Census Congressional District Profiles, Rankings Posted
USAgNet - 06/27/2019

The USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service released the Congressional District Profiles and Rankings from the 2017 Census of Agriculture. This summary presents data by congressional district that includes land, farms, market value of agricultural products sold, rankings, and producer characteristics. These profiles are often used by producers, congressional leaders, and others to support agriculture in their districts.

"The profiles are a quick way to see what's going on with agriculture in a particular area -- to show its value at the local level," said NASS Administrator Hubert Hamer. "They provide an easy way to evaluate high-level data, compare characteristics of one district to another, and educate colleagues, policymakers, and non-farming neighbors about farming in that location."

NASS released the Census of Agriculture State and County profiles on May 30. Still to be released is the Watersheds Report on July 25; the American Indian Reservations Report on Aug. 26; Zip Code Tabulations on Sept. 18; and Race, Ethnicity, and Gender Profiles on Oct. 1. All of these products will be available at www.nass.usda.gov/AgCensus.

Other products to be released this summer and fall include state-specific Census blogs showcased on www.usda.gov and additional Census Highlights publications found on the NASS website.

Already preparing for the 2022 Census of Agriculture, NASS is asking for content change suggestions and for new producers who did not receive a 2017 Census of Agriculture form last year to sign up to be counted in future censuses and surveys. Both forms can be found at www.nass.usda.gov.
