This report was prepared in the Agriculture Division. Many 
other divisions contributed to this preparation: Data Preparation 
performed the clerical processing; Administrative Services pro- 
vided the forms design and other administrative services; Publi- 
cations Services contributed in publication planning and design, 
editorial review, composition, and printing procurement; Com- 
puter Services provided the computer processing facilities; Field 
provided selected data collection activities; Economic Program- 
ming prepared the computer programs; and Economic Surveys 
assisted in preparation of data collection and processing proce- 
dures and computer programs. 

Members of the Census Advisory Committee on Agriculture 
Statistics and representatives of both public and private 



organizations made significant recommendations which helped 
establish data content. 

Members of various agencies of the U.S. Department of 
Agriculture provided valuable advice in the planning, publicizing, 
and processing phases of the census, and in helping farmers and 
ranchers complete the report forms. 

The press, farm magazines, radio and television stations, and 
farm organizations were most helpful in publicizing the census 
and encouraging cooperation of farm and ranch operators. 

Special tribute is paid to the millions of farm and ranch 
operators who furnished the information requested. Only through 
their cooperation was it possible to collect and publish the data in 
this report.

HISTORY 

The 1 987 Census of Agriculture is the 23d talon by the 
U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census. The 
first agriculture census was taken in 1840 as part of the 
sixth decennial census of population. From 1840 to 1950, 
an agriculture census was taken as part of the decennial 
census. A separate mid-decade census of agriculture was 
conducted in 1925, 1935, and 1945. From 1954 to 1974, a 
census of agriculture was taken for the years ending in 4 
and 9. In 1976, Congress authorized the census of agri- 
culture to be taken for 1 978 and 1 982 to adjust the data 
reference year so that it coincided with the economic 
censuses covering manufacturing, mining, construction, 
retail trade, wholesale trade, service industries, and selected 
transportation activities. This adjustment in timing estab- 
lished the agriculture census on a 5-year cycle collecting 
data for years ending in 2 and 7. 

USES OF THE CENSUS 

The census of agriculture is the leading source of 
statistics about the Nation's agricultural production and the 
only source of consistent, comparable data at the county. 
State, and national levels. Census statistics are used by 
Congress in developing and changing farm programs and 
for determining the effects of these programs. Many 
national and State programs are designed or allocated on 
the basis of census data, such as funds for extension 
services, research, and soil conservation projects. Private 
industry uses census statistics to provide a more effective 
production and distribution system for the agricultural 
community. 

AUTHORITY AND AREA COVERED 

The census of agriculture is required by law under Title 
13, United States Code, sections 142(a) and 191, which 
directs that a census be taken in 1979, 1983, and in every 



fifth year after 1983 covering the prior year. The 1987 
census includes each State, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the 
Virgin Island of the United States. A census of agriculture 
will be conducted in American Samoa and the Common- 
wealth of the Northern Mariana Islands in conjunction with 
the 1990 Census of Population and Housing. 

FARM DEFINITION 

Since 1850, when minimum criteria defining a farm for 
census purposes first were established, the farm definition 
has been changed nine times. The current definition, first 
used for the 1974 census, is any place from which $1,000 
or more of agricultural products were produced and sold or 
normally would have been sold during the census year. 
The farm definition used for the outlying areas varies 
according to area. The report for each area includes a 
discussion of the farm definition. 



COMPARABILITY OF DATA 

Data on acreages and inventories for 1987 and 1982 
are generally comparable. Dollar figures shown for expenses 
and agricultural product sales are expressed in current 
dollars and have not been adjusted for inflation or defla- 
tion. In general, data for censuses since 1974 are not fully 
comparable with data for 1969 and earlier censuses due to 
changes in the farm definition. 

The 1978 U.S., region, and State data shown in the 
1978 Census of Agriculture publications included data for 
farms on the mail list plus estimates from an area sample 
for farms not on the mail list. For comparability, the 1978 
data in the 1987 publications include only farms on the 
mail list. 



TABULAR PRESENTATION 

State data— Tables 1 through 47 in chapter 1 show 
detailed State-level data usually accompanied by historical 
data for one or more past censuses. Tables 48 through 53 
provide 1987 State data cross-tabulated by various farm 
classifications. 

County data — Chapter 2 presents selected data items 
by county. Tables 1 through 16 include general data for all 
counties. The counties are listed in alphabetical order in 
the column headings. Tables 17 through 36 include only 



1987 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



INTRODUCTION VII 



counties reporting the data item. Counties not having the 
item, or with a limited number of farms reporting the item, 
have data combined and presented as "all other counties." 

ADVANCE REPORTS 

Advance reports of 1 987 census data have been pub- 
lished separately for each county with 10 farms or more, 
each State, and the United States. This series provided, at 
the earliest possible date, final data on major data items 
together with comparable final data from the 1 982 census. 
Data items are standard across States except information 
on selected crops harvested, which vary by State accord- 
ing to their relative importance in the State. 

ELECTRONIC DATA DISSEMINATION 

The volume 1 data are available on computer tapes and 
compact disc. The advance report data are available on 
computer tapes, computer diskettes, and through elec- 
tronic data services such as the AG R I DATA network, the 
CENDATA package on Dialog, CompuServe on-line ser- 
vices, and the Census Bureau's State Data Center Bulletin 
Board. Computer tapes, diskettes, and compact discs are 
sold by the Customer Services Branch, Data User Services 
Division, Bureau of the Census, Washington, D.C. 20233 
(telephone (301) 763-4100). 

SPECIAL TABULATIONS 

Custom designed tabulations can be developed to 
individual user specifications on a programming cost reim- 
bursable basis. Inquiries about special tabulations should 
be directed to the Chief, Agriculture Division, Bureau of the 
Census, Washington, D.C. 20233. 

CENSUS DISCLOSURE RULES 

In keeping with the provisions of Title 13, United States 
Code, no data are published that would disclose the 
operations of an individual farm. However, the number of 



farms in a given size category or other classification, such 
as size of farm, is not considered a release of confidential 
information and is provided even though other information 
is withheld. 



INVENTORIES, PRODUCTION, AND SALES 
DATA 

Inventories of livestock, poultry, and machinery and 
equipment are measured as of December 31 of the census 
year. Crop and livestock production, sales, and expense 
data are for the calendar year, except for a few crops (such 
as citrus) for which the production year overlaps the 
calendar year. 



ABBREVIATIONS AND SYMBOLS 

The following abbreviations and symbols are used through- 
out the tables: 

Represents zero. 

(D) Withheld to avoid disclosing data for individual 

farms. 

(iC) Independent city. 

(NA) Not available. 

(S) Withheld because estimate did not meet pub- 

lication standards on the basis of either the 
response rate (associated relative standard 
error) or a consistency review. 

(X) Not applicable. 

(Z) Less than half of the unit shown. 

cwt Hundredweight. 

sq ft Square feet.

DATA COLLECTION 

Method of Enumeration 

All agriculture censuses beginning with the 1969 census 
primarily have used mailout/mailback data collection. Direct 
enumeration methods, however, continue to be used for 
the agriculture census in Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. 
Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth 
of the Northern Mariana Islands. 

Mail List 

The mail list for the 1987 census was comprised of 
individuals, businesses, and organizations that could be 
readily identified as being associated with agriculture. The 
list was assembled from the records of the 1 982 census, 
administrative records of the Internal Revenue Service 
(IRS), and the statistical records of the U.S. Department of 
Agriculture (USDA). In addition, lists of large or specialized 
operations, such as nurseries and greenhouses, specialty 
crop farms, poultry farms, fish farms, livestock farms, and 
cattle feedlot operations, were obtained from State and 
Federal agencies, trade associations, and similar organi- 
zations. Lists of companies having one or more establish- 
ments (or locations) producing agricultural products were 
obtained from the 1982 census and updated using the 
information from the Standard Statistical Establishment 
List maintained by the Census Bureau. Exhaustive record 
linkage, unduplication, and mathematical modeling yielded 
a final mail list of 4.1 million names and addresses that had 
a substantial probability of being a farm operation. 

Report Forms 

In 1987, three different report forms were used— a 
two-page, a four-page, and a six-page form to minimize the 
reporting burden, particularly for small farms and places 
less likely to be farms. The six-page sample form and the 
four-page nonsample form are the same, except sections 
23 through 28 have been added to the sample form to 
obtain supplemental information from a sample of farms. 



The information collected in these sections will give the 
Bureau of the Census a good basis for making estimates of 
these data for other farms included in the census. The 
two-page form does not have as many questions or as 
much detail as the four-page and six-page forms. The 
four-page form has 1 1 regional versions and the six-page 
form has 13 regional versions. Both forms have different 
crops preiisted. Appendix D contains copies of both the 
two-page and six-page forms. 

The six-page form was mailed to 1,104,000 addressees 
on the mail list, including all those expected to be large 
(based on expected sales or acreage) or unique (farms 
operated by multiestablishment companies or nonprofit 
organizations), all those in Alaska and Hawaii, and a 
sample of other addressees. The two-page form was 
mailed to 906,000 addressees. These were expected to be 
small farms or less likely to be farms. The four-page form 
was mailed to the remaining 2,079,000 addressees. Fur- 
ther discussion of the criteria used to determine which 
form was mailed to an addressee is provided in the Census 
Sample Design section of appendix C. 

Initial Mailing 

The report forms were mailed in mid-December 1987 to 
the approximately 4,089,000 individuals, businesses, and 
organizations on the mail list The mail packages included 
a report form, a cover letter with a description of the 
purposes and uses of the census on the reverse side, an 
information sheet containing instructions for completing 
the form, and a postage-paid return envelope. Additional 
special instructions were included with report forms sent to 
grazing associations; feedlot operations; institutional orga- 
nizations; Indian reservations; firms with multiple farm or 
ranch operations; and producers of poultry under contract, 
bees and honey, fish, laboratory animals, and nursery and 
greenhouse crops. 

To provide additional help to farmers in completing their 
reports, copies of an Agriculture Census Guide booklet 
were sent to vocational agriculture instructors, USDA 
county offices of the Agriculture Stabilization and Conser- 
vation Service, and the Cooperative Extension Service. 
The Guide contained descriptions and definitions of vari- 
ous items in more detail than the instructions included with 
each report form. Representatives of the above agencies 
graciously consented to assist farmers in completing their 
report forms. 



1987 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



APPENDIX A A-1 



Followup Procedures 

A thank you/reminder card was mailed to those on the 
mail list in mid-January 1 988. Five followup letters, three of 
which were accompanied by a report form, were sent to 
nonrespondents at 4-week intervals starting in mid-February 
and continuing until early June 1988. 

Telephone calls were made to all large farms who had 
not responded. In addition, telephone calls were made to a 
sample of other nonrespondents in counties that had a 
response rate of less than 75 percent. A nonresponse 
adjustment procedure was used to represent the final 
nonrespondent farms in the census results. A description 
of this procedure is included in the Census Estimation 
section of appendix C. 

DATA PROCESSING 

Selected report forms were reviewed prior to keying the 
data. These included reports with attached correspon- 
dence and reports with remarks or no positive data on the 
front page. 

The data from each report form were subjected to a 
detailed item-by-item computer edit. The edit performed 
comprehensive checks for consistency and reasonable- 
ness, corrected erroneous or inconsistent data, supplied 
missing data based on similar farms within the same 
county, and assigned farm classification codes necessary 
for tabulating the data. Substantial computer-generated 
changes to the data were clerically reviewed and verified. 

In the computer edit, farms with sales, acreage, or 
commodities exceeding specified levels were tested for 
historical comparability. Key items, such as acreage and 
sales, were compared for substantial changes between 
1 982 and 1 987. Sizeable historical differences were resolved 
or verified by telephone, if necessary. Respondents who 
reported sales or acreage above specified levels on non- 
sample forms were sent correspondence requesting the 
additional sample data. Prior to publication, tabulated 
totals were reviewed by statisticians to identify inconsis- 
tencies and potential coverage problems. Comparisons 
were made with previous census data, estimates published 
by the USDA, and other available data. 

MAJOR DATA CHANGES 

Prior to each agriculture census, the Census Bureau 
reviews the content of the census forms to eliminate 
questions no longer needed and to identify new items 
necessary to meet user needs and to better describe the 
agricultural situation in our Nation. Data requests are 
solicited from farmers, farm organizations, land grant col- 
leges and universities. State and federal agencies, and 
members of the Census Advisory Committee on Agricul- 
tural Statistics. Each agency and organization is asked to 
identify and justify its specific data needs. The following 
data inquiries were added to the 1987 report form: 



Income from farm-related sources 

Acres under the Conservation Reserve Program 

Payments received for participation in federal farm 

programs 
Grazing permits by source 

Additional data on production expenses were added in 
1987: 

Repair and maintenance expenses 

Cash rent 

Property taxes paid 

All other production expenses 

The following separate data inquiries were eliminated 
from the 1987 form: 

Storage capacity for petroleum products 

Number of hired farm and ranch workers 

Value of agricultural products sold directly to individuals 

for human consumption 
Source of irrigation water 
Tons of commercially mixed feed 
Expenditures for coal, wood, and coke 
Selected machinery items: automobiles, corn heads for 

combines, and field forage harvesters 
Chinchillas 
Worms 
Tropical and baitfish 

FOLLOW-ON SURVEYS, SPECIAL CENSUSES, 
AND RELATED PUBLICATIONS 

In addition to the 1987 Census of Agriculture for the 50 
States, Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Amer- 
ican Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern 
Mariana Islands, the census of agriculture program includes 
the 1988 Farm and Ranch Irrigation Survey, the 1988 
Agricultural Economics and Land Ownership Survey, and 
the 1988 Census of Horticultural Specialties. 

The 1988 Farm and Ranch Irrigation Survey provides 
data on water use by irrigated farms and ranches. Data 
include: the amount of water applied by crop, method of 
water distribution, source of water, and energy costs for 
pumping water. Data from this survey will be published as 
volume 3, part 1. 

The 1988 Agricultural Economics and Land Ownership 
Survey provides detailed data on debts, expenses, taxes, 
credits, assets, land ownership, and farm and off-farm 
income for farm operators. Many of these items, as well as 
detailed data on landlord characteristics, are being col- 
lected from the landlords of the farms involved in the 
survey. Data from this survey will be published as volume 
3, part 2. 

The 1988 Census of Horticultural Specialties covers 
operations growing and selling $2,000 or more of horticul- 
tural products such as greenhouse products, outdoor- 
grown floricultural products, nursery products, mushrooms, 
and sod. These data will be published as volume 4. 

Additional publications of the 1987 Census of Agricul- 
ture data include the Agricultural Atlas of the United States 
(previously called the Graphic Summary), Coverage Eval- 
uation, Ranking of States and Counties, and Government 
Payments and Market Value of Agricultural Products Sold. 



A-2 APPENDIX A 



1987 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



The Agricultural Atlas of the United States presents the 
Nation's agriculture graphically illustrated by dot and mul- 
ticolor pattern maps. The maps provide displays on size 
and type of farm, land use, farm tenure, market value of 
products sold, crops harvested, livestock inventories, and 
other characteristics of farms. This report will be published 
as volume 2, part 1. 

The Coverage Evaluation report provides estimates of 
the completeness of the 1987 Census of Agriculture for 
the United States, geographic regions, and selected States 
and groups of States. Estimates with their associated 
sample reliability are provided for farms not on the mail list, 
farms classified as nonfarms, duplicate farms, and non- 
farms classified as farms. This report will be published as 
volume 2, part 2. 

The Ranking of States and Counties report ranks the 
leading States and counties for selected items in the 1987 
census and provides comparative data from the 1982 
census. This report will be published as volume 2, part 3. 

A new publication on Government Payments and Mar- 
ket Value of Agricultural Products Sold presents 1 987 data 
for the United States and each State. The U.S. table has a 
format similar to volume 1, U.S. table 52 and presents 
summary data by size of farm. This report will be published 
as volume 2, part 5. 

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 

The following definitions and explanations provide a 
more detailed description of the terms used in this publi- 
cation than are available in the tables or on the report form. 
For an exact wording of the questions on the 1987 census 
report forms and the information sheet which accompa- 
nied these forms, see appendix D. Most definitions of 
terms are the same as those used in earlier censuses. The 
more important exceptions are also noted here. 

Farms or farms reporting— The term "farms" or "farms 
reporting" in the presentation of data denotes the number 
of farms reporting the item. For example, if there are 3,710 
farms in a State and 842 of them had 28,594 cattle and 
calves, the data for those farms reporting cattle and calves 
would appear as: 

Cattle and calves farms- - 842 

number- - 28,594 

Land in farms— The acreage designated in the tables 
as "land in farms" consists primarily of agricultural land 
used for crops, pasture, or grazing. It also includes wood- 
land and wasteland not actually under cultivation or used 
for pasture or grazing, provided it was part of the farm 
operator's total operations. Large acreages of woodland or 
wasteland held for nonagricultural purposes were deleted 
from individual reports during the processing operations. 
Land in farms includes acres set aside under annual 
commodity acreage programs as well as acres in the 
Conservation Reserve Program for places meeting the 
farm definition. 



Land in farms is an operating unit concept and includes 
land owned and operated as well as land rented from 
others. Land used rent free was to be reported as land 
rented from others. All grazing land, except land used 
under government permits on a per-head basis, was 
included as "land in farms" provided it was part of a farm 
or ranch. Land under the exclusive use of a grazing 
association was to be reported by the grazing association 
and included as land in farms. All land in Indian reserva- 
tions used for growing crops or grazing livestock was to be 
included as land in farms. Land in reservations not reported 
by individual Indians or non-Indians was to be reported in 
the name of the cooperative group that used the land. In 
some instances, an entire Indian reservation was reported 
as one farm. 



Land area— The approximate land area of counties and 
States represents the total land area as determined by 
records and calculations as of January 1, 1988. These 
data are updated periodically; however, the acreages 
shown for 1987 are essentially the same as for 1982. Any 
differences between the land area for 1987 and 1982 are 
due to annexations and other changes affecting county 
boundaries. 



Land in two or more counties— With few exceptions, 
the land in each farm was tabulated as being in the 
operator's principal county. The principal county was defined 
as the one where the largest value of agricultural products 
was raised or produced. It was usually the county contain- 
ing all or the largest proportion of the land in the farm or 
viewed by the respondent as his/her principal county. For 
a limited number of Midwest and Western States, this 
procedure has resulted in the allocation of more land in 
farms to a county than the total land area of the county. To 
minimize this distortion, separate reports were required for 
large farms identified from the 1982 census as having 
more than one farm unit. Other reports received showing 
land in more than one county were separated into two or 
more reports if the data would substantially affect the 
county totals. 



Value of land and buildings— Respondents were asked 
to report their estimate of the current market value of land 
and buildings owned, rented or leased from others, and 
rented or leased to others. Market value refers to the value 
the land and buildings would sell for under current market 
conditions. If the value of land and buildings was not 
reported, it was estimated using the average value of land 
and buildings from a similar farm in the same geographic 
area. 



1987 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



APPENDIX A A-3 



Harvested cropland— This category includes land from 
which crops were harvested or hay was cut, and land in 
orchards, citrus groves, vineyards, nurseries, and green- 
houses. Land from which two or more crops were har- 
vested was counted only once, even though there was 
more than one use of the land. 



Irrigated land— This category includes all land watered 
by any artificial or controlled means, such as sprinklers, 
furrows or ditches, and spreader dikes. Included are 
supplemental, partial, and preplant irrigation. Each acre 
was to be counted only once regardless of the number of 
times it was irrigated or harvested. 



Cropland used only for pasture or grazing— This 

category includes land used only for pasture or grazing 
that could have been used for crops without additional 
improvement. Included also was all cropland used for 
rotation pasture and land in government diversion pro- 
grams that were pastured. However, cropland that was 
pastured before or after crops were harvested was to be 
included as harvested cropland rather than cropland for 
pasture or grazing. 

Other cropland — This category includes cropland not 
harvested and not grazed which was used for cover crops, 
soil improvement crops, land on which all crops failed, 
cultivated summer fallow, idle cropland, and land planted 
in crops that were to be harvested after the census year. 

Total woodland — This category includes natural or 
planted woodlots or timber tracts, cutover and deforested 
land with young growth which has or will have value for 
wood products, land planted for Christmas tree production, 
and woodland pastured. Land covered by sagebrush or 
mesquite was to be reported as other pastureland and 
rangeland or other land. 

Woodland pastured— This category includes all wood- 
land used for pasture or grazing during the census year. 
Woodland or forest land pastured under a per-head graz- 
ing permit was not counted as land in farms and therefore, 
was not included in woodland pastured. 

Cropland in annual commodity acreage adjustment 
programs— This category includes land diverted or set 
aside under the provisions of the Federal Commodity 
Acreage Program. These data are for the acres of cropland 
taken out of production by growers of wheat, cotton, rice, 
corn, sorghum, barley, and oats, and devoted to conser- 
vation uses. Information was not obtained as to which 
crops would have been grown on the acres set aside. 

Cropland in the Conservation Reserve Program 
(CRP)— This category includes acres of "highly erodible" 
cropland taken out of agricultural production and planted 
to protective cover crops or reforested. The CRP was 
established through the 1985 Food Security Act and 
provides for annual rental payments and shared costs of 
conservation practices through a 10-year contract with the 
USDA. Appendix B presents data on places with all their 
cropland enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program 
and which were not counted as farms in the 1 987 census. 



Operator— The term "operator" designates a person 
who operates a farm, either doing the work or making 
day-to-day decisions about such things as planting, har- 
vesting, feeding, and marketing. The operator may be the 
owner, a member of the owner's household, a hired 
manager, a tenant, a renter, or a sharecropper. If a person 
rents land to others or has land worked on shares by 
others, he/she is considered the operator only of the land 
which is retained for his/her own operation. For partner- 
ships, only one partner is counted as the operator. If it is 
not clear which partner is in charge, then the senior or 
oldest active partner is considered the operator. For 
census purposes, the number of operators is the same as 
the number of farms. In some cases, the operator was not 
the individual named on the address label of the report 
form, but another family member, a partner, or a hired 
manager who was actually in charge of the farm operation. 

Operator characteristics — All operators were asked 
to report place of residence, principal occupation, days of 
off-farm work, year in which his/her operation of the farm 
began, age, race, sex, and Spanish origin. If race, age, sex, 
and principal occupation were not reported, they were 
imputed based on information reported by farms with 
similar acreage, tenure, and value of sales. No imputations 
were made for nonresponse to place of residence, Span- 
ish origin, off-farm work, or year began operation. Opera- 
tors of Spanish origin were tabulated by reported race. 

Farm production expenses— In 1987, additional spe- 
cific expense items and a category for all other farm 
production expenses were added to the selected farm 
production expenses collected in 1982. Consequently, we 
are publishing total farm production expenses in 1 987. The 
expenses are limited to those incurred in the operation of 
the farm business. Expenses include the share of the 
expenditures provided by landlords, contractors, and part- 
ners in the operation of the farm business. Property taxes 
paid by landlords are excluded. Expenditures for nonfarm 
activities; farm-related activities such as providing custom- 
work for others, the production and harvest of forest 
products, and recreational services; and household expenses 
are excluded. In 1987, as in other recent censuses, 
operators producing crops, livestock, or poultry under 
contract often were unable or unwilling to estimate the cost 
of production inputs furnished by the contractors. As a 
consequence, extensive estimation was required for con- 
tract producers. 

Commercial fertilizer— The expense for commercial 
fertilizer is the amount spent on fertilizer during 1987 



A-4 APPENDIX A 



1987 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



including the cost of custom application. The cost of 
custom application was excluded from the 1982 and 
1978 data. 

Agricultural chemicals— These expenses include the 
cost of all insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, and 
other pesticides, including the cost of custom applica- 
tion. Data exclude commercial fertilizer purchased. 
The cost of custom application was excluded from the 
1982 and 1978 data. The cost of lime was excluded 
from the 1987 and 1982 data, but included in 1978. 

Customwork, machine hire, and rental of machinery 
and equipment — These expenses include costs incurred 
for having customwork done on the place and for 
renting machines to perform agricultural operations. 
The cost of cotton ginning is excluded. The cost of 
labor involved in the customwork service is included in 
the customwork expense. The cost of custom applica- 
tion of fertilizer and chemicals was included in the 
1982 and 1978 customwork data, but is included in 
expenditures for these items in 1 987. The cost of hired 
labor for operating rented or hired machinery is included 
as a hired farm and ranch labor expense. 

Interest— In 1987, separate data were collected for 
interest paid on debts secured by real estate and 
interest paid on debts not secured by real estate. In 
1 982, only total interest expenses were collected. 

Market value of agricultural products sold— This 
category represents the gross market value before taxes 
and production expenses of all agricultural products sold 
or removed from the place in 1987 regardless of who 
received the payment. It includes sales by the operator as 
well as the value of any shares received by partners, 
landlords, contractors, or others associated with the oper- 
ation. In addition, it includes receipts from placing com- 
modities in the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) loan 
program in 1987. It does not include payments received for 
participation in federal farm programs nor does it include 
income from farm-related sources such as customwork 
and other agricultural services, or income from nonfarm 
sources. 

The value of crops sold in 1987 does not necessarily 
represent the sales from crops harvested in 1987. Data 
may include sales from crops produced in earlier years and 
exclude some crops produced in 1 987, but held in storage 
and not sold. For commodities, such as sugar beets and 
wool, sold through a co-op which made payments in 
several installments, respondents were requested to report 
the total value received in 1 987. 

The value of agricultural products sold was requested of 
all operators. If the operator failed to report this informa- 
tion, estimates were made based on the amount of crops 
harvested, livestock or poultry inventory or number sold. 
Extensive estimation was required for operators growing 
crops or livestock under contract. 



Caution should be used when comparing sales in 1 987 
with sales reported in earlier censuses. Sales figures are 
expressed in current dollars and have not been adjusted 
for inflation or deflation. 

Government payments — This category is limited to 
direct cash or generic commodity certificate (PIK) pay- 
ments received by the farm operator in 1987. It includes 
deficiency and diversion payments; wool payments; pay- 
ments from the Dairy Termination Program, the Conserva- 
tion Reserve Program, other conservation programs, and 
all other federal farm programs under which payments 
were made directly to farm operators. 

Other farm-related income— The 1987 report form 
included a new inquiry on income from farm-related sources. 
These data consist of gross income in 1 987 before taxes 
and expenses from the sales of farm by-products and 
other sales and services closely related to the principal 
functions of the farm business. These data are for income 
producing activities that are primarily a by-product or 
supplemental to the farm operation. They exclude income 
from business activities that are separate from the farm 
business. 

Customwork and other agricultural services— This 

income includes gross receipts received by farm oper- 
ators for providing services for others such as planting, 
plowing, spraying, and harvesting. Income from cus- 
tomwork and other agricultural services is generally 
included in the agriculture census if it is closely related 
to the farming operation. However, it is excluded if it 
constitutes a separate business or is conducted from 
another location. 

Rental of farmland — This income includes gross cash 
rent or share payments received from renting out 
farmland; payments received from the lease or sale of 
allotments for crops such as tobacco; and payments 
received for livestock pastured on a per-head, per- 
month, or per-pound basis. It excludes rental income 
from nonfarm property. 

Sales of forest products — This income includes gross 
receipts from the sales of Christmas trees, standing 
timber, maple products, gum for naval stores, fire- 
wood, and other forest products from the farm busi- 
ness. It excludes income from nonfarm timber tracts 
and sawmill businesses. 

Other farm-related income sources— This income 
includes gross receipts from hunting leases, fishing 
fees, camping, other recreational services, patronage 
dividends of cooperatives, sales of farm by-products, 
and other sales and services closely related to the 
farm business. It excludes income from nonfarm busi- 
nesses. 

Commodity Credit Corporations loans— This cate- 
gory includes loans for corn, wheat, soybeans, sorghum, 
barley, oats, cotton, peanuts, rye, rice, tobacco, and honey. 



1987 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



APPENDIX A A-5 



Agricultural chemicals used, including fertilizer and 
lime— For each type of agricultural chemical, the acres 
treated were to be reported only once even if the acres 
were fertilized or limed more than once. If multipurpose 
chemicals were used, the acres treated for each purpose 
were to be reported. 

Fish and other aquacultural products — The raising of 
fish and other aquacultural products in captivity is included 
in the agriculture census. Production in salt water is 
considered not to be in captivity and is excluded from the 
census. 

Bees and honey— Bee and honey production was 
enumerated and tabulated in the county in which the home 
farm was located even though hives are often moved from 
farm to farm over a wide geographic area. 

Citrus enumeration — In the 1987 census, reports for 
selected citrus caretakers in Arizona, Florida, and Texas 
were obtained by direct enumeration. A citrus caretaker is 
an organization or person caring for or managing citrus 
groves for others. This special enumeration has been used 
in recent censuses because of the difficulty in identifying 
and enumerating absentee grove owners who often do not 
know the information that is needed to adequately com- 
plete the census report. Each citrus caretaker was enu- 
merated as a farm operator and requested to complete 
one report form for all groves cared for and to furnish a list 
of grove owners' names, addresses, and acres of citrus. 
The names on the lists were matched to completed grove 
owners' report forms to eliminate duplication. The care- 
taker also was requested to inform the grove owner that he 
had already reported for the citrus under his care and that 
the grove owner was not to report the citrus again. In the 
1 987 census, 7 caretakers in Arizona reported 1 75 grove 
owners having 12,000 acres of citrus; the 65 caretakers in 
Florida reported 3,000 grove owners having 170,000 acres 
of citrus; and 20 caretakers in Texas reported 800 grove 
owners having 14,500 acres of citrus. 

Crop year or season covered— Acres and quantity 
harvested are for the calendar year 1 987 except for citrus 
fruits, avocados, olives; vegetables in Florida; sugarcane in 
Florida and Texas; and pineapples and coffee in Hawaii. 

Citrus fruits— The data for Florida relate to the quantity 
harvested in the September 1986 through July 1987 
harvest season, except limes that were harvested in 
the April 1987 through March 1988 harvest season. 
The data for Texas relate to the quantity harvested in 
the September 1986 through May 1987 harvest sea- 
son. The data for States, other than Florida and Texas, 
relate to the quantity harvested in the 1 986-87 harvest 
season. 

Avocados — The data for California relate to the quan- 
tity harvested in the November 1 986 through Novem- 
ber 1987 harvest season and for Florida the April 1987 
through March 1 988 harvest season. 



Olives— The data for California relate to the quantity 
harvested in the September 1986 through March 1987 
harvest season. 

Vegetables— The data for Florida relate to the crop 
harvested in the September 1986 through August 
1 987 harvest season. 

Sugarcane for sugar— The data for Florida relate to 
the cuttings from November 1986 through April 1987, 
and for Texas the cuttings from October 1 986 through 
April 1987. 

Pineapples— The data for Hawaii relate to the quantity 
harvested in the year ending May 31, 1987. 

Coffee— The data for Hawaii relate to the 1 986-87 crop. 



Acres and quantity harvested— Crops were reported 
in whole acres, except for the following crops which were 
reported in 1 0ths of acres: Irish potatoes, sweetpotatoes, 
tobacco, fruit and nut crops including land in orchards, 
berries, vegetables, and nursery and greenhouse crops; 
and in Hawaii, taro, ginger root, and lotus root. Totals for 
crops reported in lOths of acres were rounded to whole 
acres at the aggregate level during the tabulation process. 

If two or more crops were harvested from the same land 
during the year, the acres would be counted for each crop. 
Therefore, the total acres of all crops harvested generally 
exceeds the acres of cropland harvested. An exception to 
this procedure is hay crops. When more than one cutting of 
hay was taken from the same acres, the acres are counted 
only once but the quantity harvested includes all cuttings. 
However, hay cut for both dry hay and green chop or silage 
would be reported for each applicable crop. For inter- 
planted crops or "skip-row" crops, acres were to be 
reported according to the portion of the field occupied by 
each crop. 

If a crop was planted but not harvested, the acres were 
not to be reported as harvested. These acres were to be 
reported in the "land use" section under the appropriate 
cropland items— cropland used only for pasture or grazing, 
cropland used for cover crops, cropland on which all crops 
failed, or cropland idle. 

Corn and sorghum hogged or grazed were to be reported 
as "cropland harvested" and not as "cropland used only 
for pasture or grazing." Crop residue left in fields and later 
hogged or grazed was not reported as cropland pasture. 

Quantity harvested was not obtained for crops such as 
vegetables; nursery and greenhouse crops; corn cut for 
dry fodder, hogged or grazed; and sorghum, hogged or 
grazed. 

Acres of land in bearing and nonbearing fruit orchards, 
citrus or other groves, vineyards, and nut trees were to be 
reported as harvested cropland regardless of whether the 
crop was harvested or failed. However, abandoned orchards 
were to be reported as cropland idle, not as harvested 
cropland and the individual abandoned orchard crop acres 
were not to be reported. 



A-6 APPENDIX A 



1987 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



Land in orchards — This category includes land in 
bearing and nonbearing fruit trees, citrus or other groves, 
vineyards, and nut trees of all ages, including land on 
which all fruit crops failed. Respondents were instructed 
not to report abandoned plantings and plantings of less 
than 20 total fruit, citrus, or nut trees, or grapevines. 

Crop units of measure— The regional report forms 
allowed the operator to report the quantity of field crops 
harvested in a unit of measure commonly used in the 
region. When the operator reported in a unit of measure 
different than the unit of measure published, the quantity 
harvested was converted to the published unit of measure. 

Grapes could be reported in dry weight or fresh weight; 
plums and prunes in fresh weight, or prunes in dry weight; 
and in Hawaii, coffee in pounds parchment or pounds 
cherry, and macadamia nuts in pounds husked, unshelled 
or pounds shelled. For other fruit and nut crops and citrus, 
the operator was given a choice of units of measure of 
pounds, tons, or boxes. The quantity harvested for these 
crops is published in pounds. 



Data are based on a sample of farms— For 1987, 
1 982, and 1 978, selected data were collected from only a 
sample of farms. These data are subject to sampling error. 
For 1987, the six-page sample form was mailed to all large 
and specialized farms (based on expected sales, acres, or 
standard industrial classification), all farms in Alaska and 
Hawaii, and approximately 17 percent of all other farms. 
Sample sections 23 through 28 of the 1987 census forms 
included inquiries on production expenses, commercial 
fertilizer and lime, chemicals, machinery and equipment, 
value of land and buildings, and income from farm-related 
sources. Estimates of the reliability of county totals for 
selected items are shown in table F of appendix C. 

Operators of Spanish origin — No imputation was made 
for those not responding to the question on Spanish origin. 

Farms operated by Black and other races— This 
category includes Blacks, American Indians, Asian and 
Pacific Islanders, and all other racial groups other than 
White. 



Write-in crops— To reduce the length of the report 
form, only the major crops for the region were prelisted. 
For other crops, the respondent was requested to look at 
a list of crops in each section and write in the crop name 
and its code. For crops that had no individual code listed 
on the report form, the respondent was to write in the crop 
name and code the crop into the appropriate "all other" 
category for that section. Write-in crops coded as "all 
other" were reviewed and assigned a specific code when 
possible. Crops not assigned a specific code were left in 
the appropriate "all other" category. 

In some cases, the reviewers were unable to determine 
the specific crop reported by the respondent because of 
incomplete or generalized crop names. To ensure proper 
coding, most of these respondents were telephoned. 
Reports for those not telephoned were changed on the 
basis of other reports for the area. 



All other races — This category is primarily limited to 
persons native to or of ancestry from Mexico, the Carib- 
bean, and Central and South America. 

Total sales— This item represents the gross market 
value of all agricultural products sold before taxes and 
expenses in the census year including livestock, poultry, 
and their products; and crops, including nursery crops and 
hay. Respondents were asked to include landlords' and 
contractors' shares. The value of commodities placed in 
CCC loans are included as sold. In 1987, all farms includ- 
ing abnormal farms were tabulated by size based on 
reported sales. In 1982 and 1978, abnormal farms were 
included in the total sales figure, but excluded from the 
detailed size breakdowns. Abnormal farms include institu- 
tional farms, experimental and research farms, and Indian 
reservations. 



Misreported or miscoded crops— In a few instances, 
tabulated data may be inaccurate because respondents 
misunderstood or misinterpreted questions on the report 
form. Data may have been reported on the wrong line or in 
the wrong section, or the wrong crop code may have been 
placed beside the name of a write-in crop. Some of these 
errors as well as some keying errors may not have been 
identified during processing and therefore, were not cor- 
rected. Reports with significant acres of unusual crops for 
the area were examined to minimize the possibility that 
they were in error. 

"See text" References 

Items in the tables which carry the note "See text" are 
explained or defined in this section. 



Farms with sales of less than $1,000— This category 
includes all farms with actual sales of less than $1 ,000, but 
having the production potential for sales of $1,000 or 
more. These farms normally could be expected to sell 
$1 ,000 or more of agricultural products. 

Net cash return from agricultural sales for the farm 

unit— This category is derived by subtracting total operat- 
ing expenditures from the gross market value of agricul- 
tural products sold. Depreciation and the change in inven- 
tory values are excluded from expenditures. Production 
expenditures may be understated on part owner and 
tenant farms because property taxes paid by landlords are 
excluded. Other landlord expenditures, such as insurance 
or rent paid, which are not readily known to renters may 
also be omitted or understated. Gross sales include sales 
by the operator as well as the share of sales received by 



1987 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



APPENDIX A A-7 



partners, landlords, and contractors. Consequently, the 
net cash return is that of the farm unit rather than the net 
farm income of the operator. 

Other livestock and livestock products— This cate- 
gory includes all livestock and livestock products not listed 
separately. 

Value of livestock and poultry on farms— Data for 

the value of livestock and poultry on farms were obtained 
by multiplying the inventory of each major age and sex 
group by State average prices. The State average prices 
for cattle, hogs, sheep, Angora goats, hens and pullets of 
laying age, and turkeys were obtained primarily from data 
published by the National Agricultural Statistics Service, 
USDA. Prices applied to other livestock and poultry were 
census-derived averages based primarily on reported value 
of sales in the census. 

Poultry hatched— This category includes all poultry 
hatched on the place during the year and placed or sold. 
Incubator egg capacity on December 31, 1987, is tabu- 
lated under the column heading "Inventory" and the 
number of poultry hatched and placed or sold is under the 
heading "Sales." 

Hay— alfalfa, other tame, small grain, wild, grass 
silage, green chop, etc. — Data shown for hay represent 
all hay crops, including grass silage, haylage, and hay 
crops cut and fed green (green chop). In production data, 
dry tons represent dry tonnage for the various hay cate- 
gories and dry weight equivalents for grass silage and hay 
cut and fed green. The conversion used was 3 tons of 
green weight to 1 ton of dry weight. 

Tame hay other than alfalfa, small grain, and wild 

hay— Data shown represent dry tons of hay harvested 
from clover, lespedeza, timothy, Bermuda grass, Sudan 
grass, and other types of legume and tame grasses. 

Grapes — Farm operators were given the option of 
reporting the quantity of grapes harvested in dry weight or 
fresh weight. For publication purposes, all quantities of 
grapes harvested have been converted to pounds of fresh 
weight. The conversion used was 4 pounds fresh weight to 
1 pound dry weight. 

Plums and prunes — Farm operators were given the 
option of reporting the quantity of plums and prunes 
harvested in dry weight or fresh weight. For publication 
purposes, all quantities of plums and prunes harvested 
have been converted to pounds of fresh weight. The 
conversion used was 3 pounds fresh weight to 1 pound dry 
weight. 

Cherries — For 1987, cherries were reported as "sweet 
cherries," "tart cherries," or "cherries" depending on the 
regional form the respondent completed. On regional 



forms for States where cherries are an important fruit crop, 
"sweet cherries" and "tart cherries" were listed sepa- 
rately. On the other regional forms, either "cherries" were 
listed or could be written in. For publication purposes, 
"cherries, total" could be shown along with the individual 
breakdown of "sweet cherries," "tart cherries," or "cherries, 
not specified." "Cherries, not specified" is used to account 
for cherries where the "sweet" and "tart" breakdown was 
not asked or where respondents wrote in "cherries" but 
did not specify or code the kind of cherry. All the individual 
cherry items may not be shown. Data for "sweet cherries," 
"tart cherries," and "cherries, not specified" are not 
available for 1982. 

Other fruits and nuts— Data shown for other fruits and 
nuts relate to any fruits and nuts not having a specific code 
on the 1987 report form. 

Land used for vegetables— Data are for the total land 
used for vegetable crops. The acres are reported only 
once, even though two or more harvests of a vegetable or 
more than one vegetable were harvested from the same 
acres. 

Vegetables harvested for sale— The acres of vegeta- 
bles harvested is the summation of the acres of individual 
vegetables harvested. All of the individual vegetable items 
may not be shown. 

Nursery and greenhouse crops grown for sale— These 
data are a summation of the individual items reported. All 
of the individual items may not be shown. 

Nursery, floriculture, vegetable and flower seed 
crops, sod, etc., grown in the open, irrigated— Data 

refer to farms reporting irrigated nursery, floriculture, veg- 
etable and flower seeds, sod, bedding plants, etc., grown 
in the open. 

Other grains— These data are for the total market 
value of other grains sold including dry edible beans, dry 
lima beans, buckwheat, dry southern peas (cowpeas), 
emmer and spelt, flaxseed, mixed grains, lentils, mustard 
seed, dry edible peas, popcorn, proso millet, rice, rye for 
grain, safflower, sunflower seed, triticale, and wild rice. 

Value of crop production — This item represents the 
estimated value of all crops harvested during the 1987 
crop year. Data for the value of crops harvested were 
obtained by multiplying the average estimated value per 
unit by the reported acres or quantity harvested. Generally, 
harvested units of production (pounds, bushels, bales, 
etc.) were multiplied by State estimates of prices per unit. 
If only acres harvested were reported. State estimates for 
value of production per acre were used. The State average 
production price and production value per acre used in 
these calculations were obtained usually from publications 
of the National Agricultural Statistics Service, USDA. When 



A-8 APPENDIX A 



1987 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



USDA estimates were not available, Bureau of the Census 
statisticians made estimates using available sources such 
as data from adjacent States, respondent report forms, 
county extension agents, and other persons knowledge- 
able about specific crops. 



FARMS CLASSIFIED BY SPECIFIED 
CHARACTERISTICS 

State tables 48 through 53 present detailed 1987 data 
for all farms classified by specified characteristics— tenure 
of operator, type of organization, age and principal occu- 
pation of operator, size of farm (acres), value of agricultural 
products sold, and standard industrial classification. Other 
tables include data classified by value of sales groups or 
other characteristics of the farm or the operator. 

Farms by value of agricultural products sold or 
value of sales— In 1987, all farms were tabulated by size 
based on reported sales. In 1982 and earlier censuses, 
abnormal farms were not tabulated based on sales size. In 
the tables on market value of agricultural products sold, 
the sales of abnormal farms in 1982 and earlier censuses 
were included in the total sales figure, but excluded from 
the detailed size categories. Abnormal farms included 
institutional farms, experimental and research farms, and 
Indian reservations. The category "farms with sales of less 
than $1,000" included all farms with actual sales of less 
than $1 ,000 but having the production potential for sales of 
$1,000 or more. These farms normally could be expected 
to sell $1,000 or more of agricultural products. 

The sales size categories used in this report are con- 
sistent with the standard business size categories issued 
by Office of Management and Budget (0MB) in 1982. In 
State table 52, data are presented for four sales size 
categories between $10,000 and $49,999. This provides 
users with bridge data under both the 0MB and the 1978 
census classifications. For the 1992 census, data will be 
presented only for the 0MB sales size categories of 
$10,000 to $24,999 and $25,000 to $49,999. 

Abnormal farms— This category includes institutional 
farms, experimental and research farms, and Indian reser- 
vations. Institutional farms include those operated by hos- 
pitals, penitentiaries, churches, schools, grazing associa- 
tions, and government agencies. In 1987 and 1982, 
nongovernmental units such as church farms and Future 
Farmers of America camps were classified as abnormal 
farms only when 50 percent or more of their products 
produced and intended for human consumption were 
utilized by the organization. 

Farms by tenure of operator— The classifications of 
tenure used in the 1 987 census were: 

Full owners, who operate only land they own. 
1987 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



Part owners, who operate land they own and also land 
they rent from others. 

Tenants, who operate only land they rent from others or 
work on shares for others. 

Farms by type of organization — All farms were clas- 
sified by type of organization in the 1987 census. The 
classifications used were: 

Individual or family (sole proprietorship), excluding 

partnership and corporation. 

Partnership, including family partnership. 

Corporation, including family corporation. 

Other, cooperative, estate or trust, institutional, etc. 

Corporations were subclassified by two additional char- 
acteristics into: 

1. Family held 

Other than family held 

2. More than 10 stockholders 
10 or less stockholders 

Farms by age and principal occupation of opera- 
tor—Data on age and principal occupation were requested 
from all operators in 1987. The principal occupation clas- 
sifications used were: 

Farming — The operator spent 50 percent or more of 
his/her worktime in 1987 in farming or ranching. 

Other — The operator spent more than 50 percent of 
his/her worktime in 1987 in occupations other than 
farming or ranching. 

Farms by size— All farms were classified into selected 
size groups according to the total land area in the farm. 
The land area of a farm is an operating unit concept and 
includes land owned and operated as well as land rented 
from others. Land rented to or assigned to a tenant was 
considered the tenant's farm and not the owner's. 

Farms by standard industrial classification— In 1987, 
all agricultural production establishments (farms, ranches, 
nurseries, greenhouses, etc.) were classified by type of 
activity using the standard industrial classification (SIC) 
system. These classifications, found in the 1987 SIC 
ManuaM, are used to promote uniformity and comparability 
in the presentation of statistical data collected by various 
agencies.

Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Wash- 
ington, DC 20402. Stocl^ No. 041-001-003-14-2. 

APPENDIX A A-9 



An establishment primarily engaged in crop production 
(major group 01) or production of livestock and animal 
specialties (major group 02) is classified in the four-digit 
industry and three-digit industry group which accounts for 
50 percent or more of the total value of sales of its 
agricultural products. If the total value of sales of agricul- 
tural products of an establishment is less than 50 percent 
from a single four-digit industry, but 50 percent or more 
from the products of two or more four-digit industries within 
the same three-digit industry group, the establishment is 
classified in the miscellaneous industry of that industry 
group. Otherwise, it is classified as a general crop farm in 
industry 0191 or a general livestock farm in industry 0291. 
Establishments that derive 50 percent or more of the value 
of sales from horticultural specialties of industry group 018 
are classified in industry 0181 or 0182 according to their 
primary activity. 

Characteristics of all farms by selected SIC groupings 
are shown in State tables 18 and 53. The SIC groupings 
shown in State table 53, together with the associated 
products (value of sales representing 50 percent or more 
of the value of agricultural products sold during the year) 
on which the classification is based, are as follows: 

Cash grains (011)— Wheat, rice, corn, soybeans, bar- 
ley, buckwheat, cowpeas, dry field and seed beans 
and peas, flaxseed, lentils, milo, mustard seed, oats, 
popcorn, rye, safflower, sorghum, sunflowers, and 
other small grains. 

Cotton (0131)— Cotton and cottonseed. 

Tobacco (0132) — Tobacco. 

Sugarcane, sugar beets, Irish potatoes, hay, pea- 
nuts, and other field crops (0133, 0134, 

0139)— Sugarcane, sugar beets, Irish potatoes, alfalfa, 
broomcorn, clover, grass seed, hay, hops, mint, pea- 
nuts, sweetpotatoes, timothy, and yams.

ons grown in the open. 



Fruits and tree nuts (017)— Berries, grapes, tree nuts, 
citrus fruits, deciduous tree fruits, avocados, bananas, 
coffee, dates, figs, olives, pineapples, and tropical fruit. 

Horticultural specialties (018)— Bedding plants, bulbs, 
florists' greens, flower and vegetable seeds, flowers, 
foliage, fruit stocks, nursery stock, ornamental plants, 
shrubberies, sod, mushrooms, and vegetables grown 
under cover. 

General farms, primarily crops (019)— Crops, includ- 
ing horticultural specialties, but less than 50 percent of 
sales from any single three-digit industry group. 

Livestock, except dairy, poultry, and animal special- 
ties (021)— Cattle, calves, hogs, sheep, goats, goat's 
milk, mohair, and wool. 

Beef cattle, except feedlots (0212)— Production or 
feeding of beef cattle, except feedlots. 

Dairy farms (024)— Production of cows' milk and other 
dairy products and raising of dairy heifer replacements. 

Poultry and eggs (025)— Chickens, chicken eggs, tur- 
keys, ducks, geese, pheasants, pigeons, quail, and 
squab. 

Animal specialties (027)— Fur-bearing animals, rab- 
bits, horses, ponies, bees, fish in captivity except fish 
hatcheries, worms, and laboratory animals. 

General farms, primarily livestock and animal spe- 
cialties (029)— Livestock and animal specialties and 
their products, but less than 50 percent of sales from 
any single three-digit industry group. 

The SIC manual was revised for 1987. Animal aquacul- 
ture (0273) was established as a new industry and horti- 
cultural specialties, not elsewhere classified (0189) was 
deleted.

MAIL LIST MODEL 

A statistical discriminant model was developed to pre- 
dict the probability that a mail list addressee operated a 
farm. The model was used to identify the 4.1 million 
records from the preliminary census mail list of 6.0 million 
records that would receive a census of agriculture report 
form. Records from the 1 982 census mail list were used to 
build the model. Record characteristics such as the source 
of the mail list record (see appendix A for a description of 
record sources), number of source lists on which the 
record appeared, expected value of agricultural sales, and 
geographic location were used to separate mail list records 
into model groups. The proportion of 1982 census farm 
records in each group was calculated to provide an 
estimate of the probability that an addressee in the group 
operated a farm. 

Using these same group definitions, the 1987 census 
mail list records were separated into groups, each with an 
associated estimate of farm probability from the model. 
The 4.1 million mail list records in groups with the largest 
estimate of farm probability were selected to receive the 
census report form. A large percentage of the 1 .9 million 
records that were dropped from the 6.0 million preliminary 
census mail list were nonfarm records from the previous 
census. This procedure was used to obtain a more com- 
plete census enumeration without excessive respondent 
burden and data collection cost. 



CENSUS SAMPLE DESIGN 

Each of the 4.1 million name and address records on 
the census mail list was designated to receive one of three 
different types of census report forms. The three forms 
were the nonsample census form (a four-page form), the 
sample form (a six-page form), and the short form (a 
two-page form). Sections 1 through 22 of the sample form 
were identical to sections on the nonsample census form. 
However, the sample form contained additional sections 
on farm production expenditures, usage of fertilizers and 
insecticides, value of machinery and equipment, value of 
land and buildings, and farm-related income. The short 
form contained abbreviated versions of the sections on the 
nonsample census form. These three different forms were 
used to reduce the response burden of the census, while 
providing quality information on a large number of data 
items at the county level. 

The sample form was mailed to all mail list records in 
Alaska and Hawaii and to a sample of records in other 
States identified when the mail list was constructed. Addresses 
were selected into the sample with certainty if they were 
expected to have large total values of agricultural products 
sold or large acreage, if they were firms with two or more 
farms, or if they had other special characteristics. When a 
nonsample large farm was identified during processing, a 
supplemental form that contained the additional data 
inquiries was mailed. All farms in counties with less than 
100 farms in 1982 were included in the sample with 
certainty; counties containing 100 to 199 farms in 1982 
were systematically sampled at a rate of 1 in 2; and 
counties containing 200 or more farms in 1982 were 
systematically sampled at a rate of 1 in 6. This differential 
sample scheme was used to provide reliable data for 
sections 23 through 28 of the report form for all counties. 

To determine which mail list records would receive the 
short form, all mail list records not designated for the 
sample were sorted into model groups according to farm 
probability as specified by the mail list model. The 906,000 
mail list records in the model groups with the lowest 
probability of being farms and with an expected total value 
of agricultural product sales less than $20,000 were des- 
ignated to receive the short form. The remaining mail list 
records were selected to receive the nonsample census 
form. 

CENSUS ESTIMATION 

The 1987 Census of Agriculture used two types of 
statistical estimation procedures. These estimation 



1987 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



APPENDIX C C-1 



procedures accounted both for nonresponse to the data 
collection and for the sample data collection. These pro- 
cedures are used because some farm operators never 
respond .0 the census despite numerous attempts to 
contact them, and not all farm operators are requested to 
provide the sample data items. 

Whole Farm Nonresponse Estimation 

A statistical estimation procedure was used to account 
for the census farms among mail list nonrespondents that 
were not designated for telephone followup. A stratified 
systematic sample of eligible census nonrespondents were 
mailed a simplified report form. Five sample strata were 
defined based on form type, expected value of sales, and 
previous census status. The report form was designed to 
provide sufficient information to determine farm status. 
Additional mail and telephone contacts were made to 
survey nonrespondents to obtain sufficient response for 
survey estimates. 

Estimates of the proportion of census nonrespondents 
that operated farms were made for each stratum in the 
State using survey results and applied to the total number 
of census nonrespondents in that stratum. A synthetic 
estimation procedure was used to estimate the number of 
census nonrespondents that operated farms for each 
county by stratum. This estimation procedure is based on 
the assumption that the distribution of farms in a stratum 
by county is the same for census nonrespondents as for 
census respondents. 

Within each stratum in a county, a noninteger nonre- 
sponse weight was calculated and assigned to each 
eligible respondent farm record. The procedure used for 
calculating the nonresponse weight assumed the eligible 
census respondents and the nonrespondent farm opera- 
tions in a county had similar characteristics within each 
stratum. The noninteger nonresponse weight was the ratio 
of the sum of the estimated number of nonrespondent 
farms (using nonresponse survey results) and the number 
of eligible census respondent farms to the number of 
eligible census respondent farms. Stratum controls were 
established to ensure that this weight was never greater 
than 2.0. The noninteger nonresponse weight was used in 
the estimation of the final weight for the sample items. It 
was randomly rounded to an integer weight of either 1 or 2 
for each record for tabulating the complete count items. 

The procedure assumed that we obtain complete response 
from large and unique farm operations because these 
cases received intensive telephone followup during cen- 
sus processing. In situations where addressees could not 
be contacted by telephone or refused to cooperate, sec- 
ondary sources such as Agricultural Stabilization and 
Conservation Service offices or county extension agents 
were asked to provide information as to whether or not the 
addressee had agricultural activities. Data from previous 
census reports for ihe specific addressee, in conjunction 
with other information, were used to complete the census 
report form. 



Table A quantifies the effect of the nonresponse esti- 
mation procedure on selected census data items. The 
percentage of the census value contributed by nonre- 
sponse estimation as provided in this table indicates the 
potential for bias in published figures resulting from this 
procedure. The estimates provided in these tables do not 
reflect the effect of nonresponse to individual data items 
on respondents' census report forms. The effect of this 
item nonresponse is discussed further under Census Non- 
sampling Error.

Sample Estimation 



All respondent sample records received a sample weight. 
The sample data estimates the actual figures that would 
have resulted from a complete census of the items in 
sections 23 through 28 of the report form. The estimates 
were obtained from an iterative ratio estimation procedure 
that resulted in the assignment of a weight to each record 
containing sample items. For any given county, a sample 
item total was estimated by multiplying the data items for 
each farm in the county by the corresponding sample 
weight and summing overall sample records in the county. 

Each sample farm was assigned one sample weight to 
be used to produce estimates for all sample items. For 
example, if the weight given to a sample farm had the 
value 5, all sample data items reported by that farm would 
be multiplied by 5. The weight assigned a certainty farm 
was 1 . The estimation procedure used to assign weights 
was performed for each county. 

Within a county, the ratio estimation procedure for farms 
was performed in three steps using three variables. The 
first variable contained eight 1 987 total value of agricultural 
production (TVP) groups. Both the second and third 
variables, Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) code and 
farm acreage, contained two groups. The variable groups 
were as follows: 



C-2 APPENDIX C 



1987 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



SIC 

01 All crops 

02 All live- 
stock 



Acres 

0to69 
70 or more 



TVP 

$1 to $999 
$1,000 to $ 2,499 

$2,500 to $ 4,999 
$5,000 to $ 9,999 
$10,000 to $24,999 
$25,000 to $49,999 
$50,000 to $99,999 
$100,000 or more 

The first step in the estimation procedure was to parti- 
tion the sample records into 32 mutually exclusive initial 
post strata formed by combining the three variable groups. 
This produced a three dimensional array where the cells of 
the array corresponded to the initial post strata groups. 
Each sample farm record was assigned an initial weight 
equal to the ratio of the total farm count to the sample farm 
count, expanded for nonresponse estimation, for the cell 
containing the sample farm. This weight was approxi- 
mately equal to the inverse of the probability of selecting a 
farm for the census sample. 

The second step in the estimation procedure was to 
combine, if necessary, the cells of the array (prior to the 
repeated ratio estimation) to increase the reliability of the 
ratio estimation procedure. Any cell within the array that 
either contained less than 10 sample farms or had a ratio 
of total farms to sample farms that was more than 2 times 
the mail sample rate was collapsed with another cell (in the 
same variable) according to a specified collapsing pattern. 
New total farm counts and sample farm counts were 
computed for each of the collapsed cells (final post strata) 
and were used in the ratio estimation procedure to calcu- 
late final sample weights. 

In the third step in the ratio estimation procedure, 
complete counts for the three variables (TVP, SIC, acre- 
age) were used to compute the marginals of the array 
defined by the final post strata. Factors were then applied 
to expanded sample totals in each cell of the array to 
obtain agreement with the row marginal (TVP) complete 
counts. The sample totals then had factors applied to 
obtain agreement with the column marginal (SIC) complete 
counts. Lastly, the sample totals had factors applied to 
obtain agreement with the depth marginal (acreage) com- 
plete counts. This procedure that requires the row totals, 
then the column totals, and then the depth totals to agree 
with the complete counts for the rows, columns, and 
depths, respectively, is continued iteratively until the pro- 
cess converges (the marginal totals agree with the com- 
plete count totals). 

The ratio of the adjusted total farm count to the sample 
farm count obtained from the second iteration of the 
estimation procedure was the noninteger final post stratum 
sample weight assigned to the sample farm records in that 
post stratum. The noninteger sample weight, the product 
of the noninteger final post stratum sample weight and the 
nonresponse weight, was randomly rounded to an integer 
weight for tabulation. If, for example, the final weight for the 



farms in a particular group was 7.2, then one-fifth of the 
sample farms in this group were randomly assigned a 
weight of 8 and the remaining four-fifths received a weight 
of 7. 



CENSUS SAMPLING ERROR 

Sampling error in the census data results from the 
nonresponse sample and the census sample data collec- 
tion. Census items were classified as either complete 
count or sample data items. The complete count items 
were asked of all farm operators. The complete count data 
items included land in farms, harvested cropland, livestock 
inventory and sales, crop acreages, quantities harvested 
and crop sales, land use, irrigation, government loans and 
payments, conservation acreage, type of organization, and 
operator characteristics (sections 1 through 22 of the 
census report form). Variability in the complete count data 
items is considerably smaller than in the sample items as 
the variation is due only to the nonresponse sample 
estimation procedure. The sample items were asked of 
approximately 25 percent of the total census farm opera- 
tors. The sample data items included farm production 
expenditures, fertilizer and chemical usage, farm machin- 
ery and equipment, value of land and buildings, and 
farm-related income (sections 23 through 28 of the census 
report form). Variability in the estimates of sample items is 
due both to the census sample selection and estimation 
procedure and the nonresponse sample estimation proce- 
dure. 

The sample for the 1 987 Census of Agriculture is one of 
a large number of possible samples of the same size that 
could have been selected using the same sample design. 
Estimates derived from the different samples would differ 
from each other. The difference between a sample esti- 
mate and the average of all possible sample estimates is 
called the sampling deviation. The standard error or sam- 
pling error of a survey estimate is a measure of the 
variation among the estimates from all possible samples, 
and thus is a measure of the precision with which an 
estimate from a particular sample approximates the aver- 
age result of all possible samples. The percent relative 
standard error of estimate is defined as the standard error 
of the estimate divided by the value being estimated 
multiplied by 100. If all possible samples were selected, 
each of the samples were surveyed under essentially the 
same conditions, and an estimate and its standard error 
were calculated from each sample, then: 

1 . Approximately 67 percent of the intervals from one 
standard error below the estimate to one standard 
error above the estimate would include the average 
value of all possible samples. 

2. Approximately 90 percent of the intervals from 1 .65 
standard errors below the estimate to 1 .65 standard 
errors above the estimate would include the aver- 
age value of all possible samples. 



1987 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



APPENDIX C C-3 



The computations involved to define the above confi- 
dence statements are illustrated in the following example. 
Assume that the estimate of number of farms for the State 
is 94,382 and the relative standard error of the estimate 
(percent) is .1 percent (0.001). Multiplying 94,382 by 0.001 
yields 94, the standard error. Therefore, a 67-percent 
confidence interval is 94,288 to 94,476 (i.e., 94,382 plus or 
minus 94). If corresponding confidence intervals were 
constructed for all possible samples of the same size and 
design, approximately 2 out of 3 (67 percent) of these 
intervals would contain the figure obtained from a com- 
plete enumeration. Similarly, a 90 percent confidence 
interval is 94,227 to 94,538 (i.e., 94,382 plus or minus 1 .65 
x94). 

Tables B and C provide the reliability estimates of the 
estimated number of farms in a county reporting complete 
count and sample items, respectively. Both tables show 
the percent relative standard errors for selected estimated 
number of farms in a county reporting an item.These are 
derived from a regression equation. The parameters of the 
regression equation were estimated using the estimated 
number of farms in a county reporting the complete count 
or sample item as the independent variable and the 
standard error of that estimate as the dependent variable 
for all counties in the State.

To illustrate the use of these tables, assume that the 
estimate of the number of farms reporting hogs and pigs 
for a particular county, as given in county table 12, is 89. 
Since hogs and pigs is a complete count data item, refer to 
table B and select the estimated relative standard error of 
the estimate from the row whose value is equal to or just 
less than the estimated number of farms, 89. For this 
example, the relative standard error of the estimate comes 
from the row for 75 farms reporting. For sample data items, 
follow the same procedure using table C. In counties that 
had less than 100 farms in the 1982 Census of Agriculture, 
table does not apply because the farms in these 



counties were sampled with certainty (1 in 1), and thus, the 
reliability estimates for the number of farms in these 
counties are smaller than for counties that were sampled 
at lower rates (1 in 2 or 1 in 6).

Table D presents the relative standard error of selected 
State data items for all farms and for all farms with sales of 
$10,000 or more. The percent relative standard error of the 
estimate for complete count data measures the variation 
associated with the sample-based adjustment for whole 
farm nonresponse. The percent relative standard error of 
the estimate for sample items measures both the sampling 
error due to the nonresponse sample estimation procedure 
and the census sample selection and estimation proce- 
dure. The reliability of State estimates may vary substan- 
tially from State to State. Generally, State estimates for a 
given data item are less reliable than the corresponding 
U.S. estimate. 

Table E presents the standard error (not relative stand- 
ard error) for percent change in State totals from 1 982 to 
1 987. The general purpose of the percent change estimate 
is to provide a relative measure of the difference in a 
characteristic between censuses. The relative change for 
a given characteristic is defined as the ratio of the differ- 
ence of the 1 987 and the 1 982 estimate for that charac- 
teristic to the 1982 estimate. This ratio is multiplied by 100 
to obtain the percent change. The percent standard error 
of a percent change estimate, then, is the standard error of 
the ratio multiplied by 100. 

Table F presents the relative standard error for county 
totals for 10 major complete count items and 7 sample 
items. The relative standard error of the estimate (percent) 
for the same item differs among counties in a State. 
Reasons for this are differences among counties in (1) the 
total number of farms, (2) the number of large farms 
included with certainty, (3) the size classifications of the 
farms sampled, (4) the amount of nonresponse, (5) the 
general agricultural characteristics, and (6) the specific 
characteristic being measured. 



C-4 APPENDIX C 



1987 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



CENSUS NONSAMPLING ERROR 

The accuracy of the census counts are affected by the 
joint effects of the sampling errors described in the previ- 
ous section and nonsampling errors. Extensive efforts 
were made to compile a complete and accurate mail list for 
the census, to design an understandable report form and 
instructions, and to minimize processing errors through the 
use of quality control, verification, and check measures on 
specific operations. Nonsampling errors arise from incom- 
pleteness of the census mail list, duplication in the mail list, 
incorrect data reporting, errors in editing of reported data, 
and errors in imputation for missing data. These specific 
nonsampling errors are further discussed in this section. 
Evaluation studies will be conducted to measure the extent 
of certain nonsampling errors such as coverage error, 
classification error, and item imputation. 

Census Coverage 

The main objective of the census of agriculture is to 
obtain a complete and accurate enumeration of U.S. farms 
with accurate data on all aspects of the agricultural oper- 
ation. However, the cost and availability of resources for 
this enumeration place restrictions on operationally feasi- 
ble data collection methodologies. The past five agricul- 
ture censuses have been conducted by mail enumeration 
with telephone contact for selected nonrespondents. The 
completeness of such an enumeration thus depends to a 
large extent on the coverage of farm operations by the 
census mail list. 

Historically, the census of agriculture has included 
approximately 90 percent of the farms in the United States 
and over 96 percent of the agricultural production. Com- 
plete enumeration of agricultural operations satisfying the 
farm definition of $1,000 or more in agricultural sales is 
complicated by fluctuations in agricultural operations qual- 
ifying for enumeration, the variety of arrangements under 
which farms are operated, the multiplicity of names used 
by an operation, the number of operations in which an 
operator participates, the accuracy of data reporting, etc. A 
new mail list is compiled for each census because no 
current single list of agricultural operations is comprehen- 
sive. 

An evaluation of census coverage has been conducted 
for each census of agriculture since 1945. The evaluation 
provides estimates of the completeness of census farm 
count and major census data items. In addition, the 
evaluation helps to identify problems in the census enu- 
meration and provide information that can form the basis 
for improvements. The results of the 1987 Coverage 
Evaluation program will be published in volume 2, part 2. 

The evaluation of coverage conducted in 1987 was 
designed to measure errors in the census mail list and in 
farm classification. Mail list error includes a measurement 
of farms not on the census mail list (undercount), and a 
measurement of farms enumerated more than once in the 



census (overcount). Classification error includes a mea- 
surement of farms classified as nonfarms in the census 
(undercount) and of nonfarms classified as farms in the 
census (overcount). Classification error arises from report- 
ing and processing errors. Mail list undercount dominates 
all coverage errors. Net coverage error is defined as the 
difference of undercounted and overcounted farms. Mea- 
surements of these errors, as well as a description of the 
complete coverage program, will be available in the Cov- 
erage Evaluation report. 

Mail List Coverage 

A major problem with the use of a mail list for the census 
of agriculture enumeration is the difficulties that are encoun- 
tered in compiling a complete list. The percentage of farms 
on the census mail list varies considerably by State. 
Several reasons have contributed to farm operators' names 
not being included on the census mail list — the operation 
may have been started after the mail list was developed, 
the operation may be so small as not to appear in 
agricultural related source lists used in compiling the 
census list, or the operation may have been falsely clas- 
sified as a nonfarm prior to mailout. A large proportion of 
the farms not included on the mail list were small in both 
acres and sales of agricultural products. 

The 1987 Census of Agriculture Coverage Evaluation 
used the area segment sample of the 1987 June Enumer- 
ative Survey (JES) of the National Agricultural Statistical 
Service (NASS) to estimate farms not on the census mail 
list. The Census Bureau contracted with the NASS to 
augment the JES data collection and receive survey data 
under the confidentiality protection afforded by Title 13, 
U.S. Code, from all residents of area sample segments 
with agricultural activity. These survey records were matched 
to the census mail list. Records that did not match were 
mailed a census of agriculture report form to estimate mail 
list coverage. Estimates of farms not on the census mail 
list used the capture-recapture dual frame estimator that 
will be described in the Coverage Evaluation report. 

Table G provides coverage evaluation estimates of the 
number of farms not on the mail list and selected charac- 
teristics of those farms with their percent relative standard 
error. The table also provides an estimate of characteris- 
tics of farms not on the mail list as a percentage of total 
farms in the New England States. The estimate of total 
farms in the New England States is based on census farm 
count and the estimated number of farms not on the 
census mail list. This estimate of total farms in the New 
England States was not adjusted for classification and list 
duplication errors. Estimates of these errors will be made 
at the regional level and will be available in the Coverage 
Evaluation report. The table provides the standard error 
(not relative standard error) of this percent estimate. 

Respondent and Enumerator Error 

Incorrect or incomplete responses to the mailed census 
report form or to the questions posed by a telephone 



1987 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



APPENDIX C C-5 



enumerator introduce error into the census data. Such 
incorrect information can lead, in some cases, to incorrect 
enumeration of farms. This type of reporting error is 
measured by the Classification Error Study discussed later 
in this section. To reduce all types of reporting error, 
questions were phrased as clearly as possible based on 
tests of the census report form, and detailed instructions 
for completing the report form were provided to each 
addressee. In addition, each respondent's answers were 
checked for completeness and consistency. 

Item Nonresponse 

Nonresponse to particular questions on the census 
report that we would logically or statistically expect to be 
present may create a type of nonsampling error in both 
complete count and sample data. When information reported 
for another farm with similar characteristics is used to edit 
or impute for item nonresponse, the data may be biased 
because the characteristics of the nonrespondents have 
not been observed and may differ from those reported by 
respondents. Any attempt to correct the data for nonre- 
sponse may not completely reflect this difference either at 
the element level (individual farm operation) or on the 
average. 

Processing Error 

The many steps of processing of each census report 
form are sources for the introduction of nonsampling error. 
The processing of the census report forms includes cleri- 
cal screening for farm activity, computerized check-in of 
report forms and followup of nonrespondents, keying and 
transmittal of completed report forms, computerized edit- 
ing of inconsistent and missing data, review and correction 
of individual records referred from the computer edit, 
review and correction of tabulated data, and electronic 
data processing. These operations undergo a number of 
quality control checks to ensure as accurate an application 
as possible, yet some errors are not detected and cor- 
rected. 

Classification Error 

An evaluation study of classification errors was con- 
ducted in the 1987 Census of Agriculture as part of the 
census coverage evaluation program. A sample of mail list 
respondents was selected, and these addresses reenu- 
merated to determine whether they were a farm or non- 
farm. A farm status determination was made based on the 
evaluation questionnaire and compared with the status 
based on the data reported on the census form. Differ- 
ences in status were reconciled. 

In past censuses, the proportion of farms undercounted 
due to classification errors was higher for farms with small 
values of sales. The classification error rate was higher for 
(1) livestock farms than crop farms, (2) farms with a small 



number of acres than larger farms, or (3) tenant farms than 
full or part-owner farms. Results from the 1987 classifica- 
tion error study will be published in the Coverage Evalua- 
tion report. 



EDITING DATA AND IMPUTATION FOR ITEM 
NONRESPONSE 

For the 1987 Census of Agriculture, as in previous 
censuses, all reported data were keyed and then edited by 
computer. The edits were used to determine whether the 
reports met the minimum criteria to be counted as farms in 
the census. Computer edits also performed a series of 
complex, logical checks of consistency and completeness 
of item responses. They provided the basis for deciding to 
accept, impute (supply), delete, or alter the reported value 
for each data record item. 

Whenever possible, edit imputations, deletions, and 
changes were based on component or related data on the 
respondent's report form. For some items, such as oper- 
ator characteristics, data from the previous census were 
used when available. Values for other missing or unaccept- 
able reported data items were calculated based on reported 
quantities and known price parameters. 

When these and similar methods were not available and 
values had to be supplied, the imputation process used 
information reported for another farm operation in a geo- 
graphically adjacent area with characteristics similar to 
those of the farm operation with incomplete data. For 
example, a farm operation that reported acres of corn 
harvested, but did not report quantity of corn harvested, 
was assigned the same bushels of corn per acre harvested 
as that of the last nearby farm with similar characteristics 
that reported acceptable yields during that particular exe- 
cution of the computer edit. The imputation for missing 
items in each section of the report form was conducted 
separately; thus, assigned values for one operation could 
come from more than one respondent. 

Prior to the imputation operation, a set of default values 
and relationships were assigned to the possible imputation 
variables. The relationships and values varied depending 
on the item being imputed. For example, different default 
values were assigned for several standard industrial clas- 
sification and total value of sales categories when imputing 
hired farm labor expenses. These values and item relation- 
ships for the possible imputation variables were stored in 
the computer in a series of matrices. The computer 
records were sorted by reported State and county, where 
the county sequence was based on similar types of farms 
and agricultural practices. 

Each execution of the computer edit consisted of records 
from only one State. For a given execution of the edit, the 
stored entries in the various matrices were retained in the 
computer only until a succeeding record having acceptable 
characteristics for some sections of the report form was 
processed by the computer. Then the acceptable responses 



C-6 APPENDIX C 



1987 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



of the succeeding operation replaced those previously 
stored. When a record processed through the edit had 
unreported or unacceptable data, the record was assigned 
the last acceptable ratio or response from an operation 
with a similar set of characteristics. Once each execution 
of the computer edit for a State was completed, the 
possible imputation variables were reset to the default 
values and relationships for subsequent executions. 

After the initial computer edit, keyed reports not meeting 
the census farm definition were reviewed to ensure that 



the data were keyed correctly. Edit referrals were gener- 
ated for about 30 percent of the reports included as farms, 
and they were also reviewed for keying accuracy and to 
ensure that the computer edit actions were correct. If the 
results of the computer edit were not acceptable, correc- 
tions were made and the record was reedited. More 
extensive discussions of the edit and item imputation 
methodology with measures of the extent of imputation in 
the census estimates will be provided in a separate 
research report.

1 1 -digit census file numberlsl of the DUPLICATE report(s) ON THE 
COMPLETED REPORT in the space provided to the loft of the address 
label. Return the extra report(s) in the same envelope with your 
completed report form so that we can correct our records. 

3. If You No Longer Farm 

If you had agricultural operations et eny time during 1987, please 
report all agricultural activity during the year. Report all land on your 
census form that you owned or rented. Also, report your 1 987 crop

4. If You Never Farmed or Have No Aseoclatlon With Agriculture 

Please write a note on the report form near the address label explaining 
this and return the form so that we can correct our records. In our 
efforts to make the census as complete as possible, we obtained lists

production unit, i.e., each individual farm, ranch, feedlot, greenhouse,

operation and include all partners' shares on the one report. If 
members of the partnership also operate separate farms or ranches in 
addition to the partnership farming operation, separate report forms 
should be completed for each individual operation. 

if two or more report forms were received for the same operation, mark 
each additional form as a "Duplicate." Return the duplicate report(s) in 
the same envelope with the completed partnership report, where 
possible, or write a note on the duplicate report, such as, ' ' (Name of 
partner} has completed a report for the partnership (provide name and 
CFN of partnership. )"
