ICYMI: NASS-CO: 2017 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE DATA RELEASED

LAKEWOOD, Colo. – April 11, 2019 – The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) released the 2017 Census of Agriculture results sharing a wide-range of information about what agricultural products were raised in the United States in 2017, as well as where, how and by whom they were grown. The data, which is reported at the national, state and county level, will help farmers, ranchers, local officials, agribusiness and others make decisions for the future.

“The 2017 Census of Agriculture provides a wide range of demographic, economic, land, and crop and livestock production information as well as first-time or expanded data,” said Bill Meyer, Director, Mountain Regional Field Office. “Many of these data about the states in our Region and our counties are only collected and reported as part of the every-five-year census.”

“The Census shows new data that can be compared to previous censuses for insights into agricultural trends and changes down to the county level,” said NASS Administrator Hubert Hamer. “We are pleased to share first-time data on topics such as military status and on-farm decision making. To make it easier to delve into the data, we are pleased to make the results available in many online formats including a new data query interface, as well as traditional data tables.”

To provide easier access to the data, NASS created a number of online tools for people to find and use Census data, including: Continue reading
