This report was prepared in the Agriculture Division. Many 
divisions participated in the various activities: Decennial Planning 
coordinated the agriculture census data collection in conjunction 
with the 1990 Census of Population and Housing; Economic 
Programming prepared the computer programs and designed 
the computer system; Geography developed the field maps; 
Administrative and Publication Services provided the forms design, 
publication planning and design, editorial reviews, composition, 
and printing procurement. The census program was conducted 
under the direction of Juan S. Borja and William H. Stewart, 
Co-directors of the Census for the Government of the Com- 



monwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, under a special 
agreement with the U.S. Census Bureau. Technical advice and 
oversight were provided by Carolyn Hay, Census Advisor, U.S. 
Bureau of the Census. 

Representatives of the Government of the Commonwealth of 
the Northern Mariana Islands made significant recommendations 
which helped establish data content and provided valuable 
advice during the planning stages of the census. 

Special tribute is paid to the many farm operators who 
furnished the information requested. Only through their cooper- 
ation was it possible to collect and publish the data in this report.

HISTORY • 

The 1990 Census of Agriculture for the Northern Mari- 
ana Islands is the third census to be taken by the U.S. 
Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census. The first 
agriculture census was taken in 1970 as part of the 
decennial census of population and housing and has 
continued every 10 years. 

USES OF THE CENSUS 

The census of agriculture is the recognized source of 
statistics about the Northern Mariana Islands' agricultural 
production and the only source of consistent, comparable 
data at the municipality level. Census statistics are used to 
measure agricultural production and to identify trends in an 
ever changing agricultural sector. Many local programs 
use census data as a benchmark for designing and 
evaluating surveys. 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. The 
census of agriculture in the Northern Mariana Islands is 
conducted every 10 years and was included with the 1990 
Census of Population and Housing. Beginning in 1997, the 
census will be conducted every 5 years as it is in each 
State, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands of the 
United States. 

FARM DEFINITION 

The statistics presented in this report relate to places 
qualifying as census farms. Chapter 1 uses the new farm 
definition, which defines a farm as any place from which 



$1 00 or more of agricultural products were sold or normally 
would have been sold during the census year. Chapter 2 
provides comparable 1 990 data according to the old farm 
definition used in previous censuses, which defined a farm 
as having a minimum number of livestock, poultry, fruit or 
nut trees, or any crops or vegetables harvested for sale. 



COMPARABILITY OF DATA 

Data comparability has been maintained in chapter 2 
which contains the 1980 data along with the comparable 
1990 data. Dollar figures shown for agricultural product 
sales only apply under the new farm definition in chapter 1 . 



TABULAR PRESENTATION 

Island data— Chapter 1 , tables 1 through 8 and chapter 
2, tables 1 through 7 show detailed data for the Northern 
Mariana Islands. Chapter 1, tables 21 through 24 provide 
1990 data for the Northern Mariana Islands cross tabu- 
lated by tenure of operator, size of farm, age of operator, 
and value of agricultural products sold. 

Municipality data— Data are presented for municipali- 
ties in chapter 1, tables 9 through 20 and in chapter 2, 
tables 8 through 17. 



SPECIAL TABULATIONS 

Custom designed tabulations are available to individual 
user specifications on a programming cost reimbursable 
basis. Inquiries about special tabulations should be directed 
to the Chief, Agriculture Division, Bureau of the Census, 
Washington, DC 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 
such as crop production, number of livestock, and sales is 
withheld.

DATA COLLECTION 

Method of Enumeration 

The census of agriculture was conducted by direct 
enumeration beginning in April 1 990 in conjunction with the 
population and housing censuses. On the last page of the 
population and housing questionnaire was an agriculture 
screening section. The enumerator was required to com- 
plete an agriculture questionnaire when a "yes" answer 
was received to any one of the five screening questions. 

Questionnaire 

The questionnaire for the 1990 Census of Agriculture in 
the Northern Mariana Islands was prepared by the Agricul- 
ture Division, Bureau of the Census, in cooperation with 
the Government of the Northern Mariana Islands. 

The content of the 1990 census questionnaire is similar 
to the 1 980 questionnaire. Quantity sold and value of sales 
were added to the crops and livestock sections. Other 
additions and deletions were made based on discussions 
with the Government of the Northern Mariana Islands and 
with respect to published tables in the 1980 census. 

Followup Procedures 

An enumerator was instructed to visit a farm up to three 
times. If no one was available to complete the question- 
naire, the case would then be given to the supervisor. If all 
attempts to obtain the information from the farm operator 
failed, the information might then be obtained from a 
neighbor or by observation of the place. 

DATA PROCESSING 

The processing was done in the Agriculture Division at 
the Bureau of the Census. Each questionnaire was edited 
and coded prior to being keyed and tabulated. The ques- 
tionnaires were examined for accuracy, consistency, and 



completeness. Errors in computations and in units of 
measure, inconsistencies, and misplaced entries were 
corrected. Incomplete reports were adjusted on the basis 
of related information on the same form or on question- 
naires for nearby farms of similar type and size. 

After all questionnaires had been reviewed, the data 
were keyed and subjected to a detailed item-by-item 
computer edit. The edit performed comprehensive checks 
for completeness and consistency. Inconsistencies identi- 
fied by the edit were corrected by subject matter special- 
ists and reedited. The data were then tabulated by the 
computer for analysis. Following necessary corrections, 
the data were retabulated for final publication. 

MAJOR DATA CHANGES 

Prior to each agriculture census, the Bureau of the 
Census reviews the content of the census forms to elimi- 
nate questions no longer needed, identify new items 
necessary to meet user needs, and to better describe the 
agriculture situation in the Northern Mariana Islands. Data 
requests are solicited from government agencies in the 
Northern Mariana Islands. The following changes were 
made to the 1990 questionnaire: 

• Additions: 

- Information on landlords 

- Ornamental plants and nursery crops 

- Chicken eggs value 

- Quarts of milk 

- Quantity and value of sales in the crops and 
livestock sections 

• Deletions: 

- Coffee 

FOLLOW-ON SURVEYS, SPECIAL CENSUSES,

1987 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



APPENDIX A A-1 



Also, there is a 1987 Economic Censuses of Outlying 
Areas publication for the Commonwealth of the Northern 
Mariana Islands (OA87-E-7). 

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 

The following definitions and explanations provide a 
more detailed description of terms used in this publication 
than are available in the tables or on the questionnaire. For 
an exact wording of the questions on the 1 990 question- 
naire, see appendix B. 

In the tables, data for land in farms, land use, fruit and 
nut trees, and livestock and poultry on hand represent the 
situation existing at the time of enumeration of each farm. 
The enumeration for the 1 990 Census of Agriculture began 
in April 1990 and the 1980 census in April 1980. All other 
data, such as that relating to acres and production, are for 
the calendar years 1 989 and 1 979. Sales are for 1 989 only. 

Farm operator— The term "operator" designates a 
person who operates a farm, either by doing the work 
himself/herself or directly supervising the work. The oper- 
ator may be the owner, a member of the owner's house- 
hold, a tenant or renter, the manager, or the person in 
charge of an institutional farm. By definition, the number of 
farm operators is the same as the number of farms. 

Farms or farms reporting— The term "farms" or "farms 
reporting" in the presentation of data denotes the number 
of farms reporting the item. 

Land in farms— The land in farms was determined from 
the answers to questions 1 through 4 in section 1 of the 
questionnaire (see app. B). The amounts of land reported 
as owned and rented from others were added together, 
and the amount of land reported as rented to others was 
subtracted from that sum. The result represents "land in 
farms." Although the area designated land in farms con- 
sists primarily of agricultural land, i.e.— land used for 
crops, pasture, or grazing— it also included areas of land 
not actually under cultivation nor used for pasture or 
grazing. For example, woodland and wasteland owned or 
rented from others were included as land in farms unless 
the report indicated it was being held for nonagricultural 
purposes, such as recreational or for timber. 

Land owned— This includes all land held by the opera- 
tor or his/her spouse under title, purchase contract, or as 
heir or trustee of an undivided estate at the time of 
enumeration. Land managed by a hired manager also was 
considered owned. 

Land rented from others— This includes not only land 
that the operator rented or leased from others, but also 
land worked on shares for others and land used rent free. 

Land rented to others— This includes all land the 
operator rented or leased to others and all land assigned 
to others on shares or rent free during the past year. For 



the most part, the land rented to others represents agri- 
cultural land, but it also may include land rented for 
residential or other purposes. The tenant is considered to 
be the operator of land leased, rented, or worked on 
shares, even though the landlord may supervise the oper- 
ations. The landlord is considered to be the operator of 
only that portion of the land not assigned to tenants. 

Land use — Land in farms is categorized according to 
the way it was being used on enumeration day. The land 
uses described in the following paragraphs are mutually 
exclusive in that each acre of land is counted only once, 
even though it may have had more than one use during the 
year. 

• Cropland used for crops— This includes all land 
planted in crops at the time of enumeration. Land was 
to be reported only once, even if two or more crops 
were planted on the same land. It includes field crops 
that were grazed when mature or almost mature; land 
in bearing and nonbearing fruit and nut trees or 
plants, or any other tree crops; land that had partial 
but not total crop failure; and land in home gardens. 

• Cropland not used for crops— This includes all land 
that the operator considered as cropland but on 
which no crops were planted. It includes land used for 
pasture and grazing that the operator feels could 
have been used for crops; land with total crop failure 
as a result of drought, flood, insect, fire, or other 
causes; idle and fallow cropland; and cropland with 
soil improvement grass, cover crops, etc., for the 
purpose of improvement. 

• Pasture or grazing land— This includes all land 
suitable for pasture or grazing, except land used for 
crops and cropland pasture whether or not used for 
grazing livestock. It also includes woodland being 
used for pasture. 

• Other land— This includes all land that did not qualify 
either as cropland or pastureland. It includes land in 
house and building lots, lanes, roads, ditches, ponds, 
swamps, steep slopes, wasteland, brushland, and 
nonpastured woodland. 

Type of holding — Agricultural operations were classi- 
fied according to the response the enumerator obtained 
from the farm operator as to whether the farm was 
producing mainly for home consumption or mainly for sale. 

• Holdings producing mainly for home consump- 
tion — This applies to holdings from which more than 
50 percent of the agricultural output was consumed 
by the holder's household. 

• Holdings producing mainly for sale— This applies 
to holdings from which 50 percent or more of the 
agricultural output was for sale. These holdings were 
further classified by the farm operator according to 
their most important activity. If 50 percent or more of 



A-2 APPENDIX A 



1987 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



the value was from one of the following, the holding 
was named accordingly. 

- Crop holding is one which the value of sales 
from crops was more than 50 percent. 

- Livestock and/or poultry holding is one which 
the value of sales from livestock and livestock 
products and/or poultry and poultry products 
was more than 50 percent. 

- Mixed holding is one which the value of sales 
was mainly a combination of sales of crops, 
livestock, livestock products, and/or poultry 
and poultry products. 

- Other holding is one which the value of sales 
was mainly from the sale of agricultural prod- 
ucts not listed in the previous groups. 

Crops harvested— The questionnaire contained individ- 
ual inquiries for crops commonly grown and space to write 
in crops less frequently produced for the year 1 990. 

• Field crops, melons, and vegetables — The number 
of acres harvested, the total quantity of each crop 
harvested, the quantity sold, and value of sales during 
1 989 were to have been reported. 

When two or more crops or two or more plantings 
of the same crop were harvested from the same land 
during the year, the acres were to be reported 
separately for each crop or planting. 

• Fruits and nuts— For fruits grown on farms, informa- 
tion was obtained on the total trees both bearing and 
nonbearing, that were on the place on enumeration 
day. The total quantity harvested, the quantity sold, 
and value of sales were for 1 989. 

• Nursery and ornamental plants — Data reflect the 
number of square feet, acres, and value of sales for 
1989. 

Livestock and poultry— Data show the number on 
hand at the time of enumeration. All livestock and poultry 
on the place were counted at the time of the enumeration 
regardless of ownership. 

Sales data were collected for all livestock, poultry, and 
fish sold from the place during 1 989, as well as the dozens 
of eggs sold. 

"Milk cows" were defined as cows that had been on the 
place on the day of enumeration and were milked at any 
time during 1989. All other cows were to be included in the 
data for "Other cattle and calves." 

Equipment — The following types of equipment on the 
place at the time of enumeration, regardless of ownership, 
were reported as long as they were in operating condition 
and used in the farm business. 



• Tractors — This includes all wheel and tracklaying 
(crawler) tractors, garden tractors, and homemade 
tractors, other than motor tillers. 

• Motortrucks— This includes pickup trucks, truck-trailer 
combinations, jeeps, and station wagons, if used 
primarily as trucks. 

• Automobiles — This includes jeeps and station wag- 
ons used primarily as passenger cars. 

Facilities— The presence or absence of electricity and/or 
piped running water on the place was reported. 

• Electricity — This includes electrical power anywhere 
on the place including the dwelling of the operator. 

• Piped running water— This includes water in pipe- 
lines by a pressure system or by gravity flow from 
natural or artificial sources. Water from a hand pump 
was not considered to be piped running water. 

Operator characteristics— Data were obtained to clas- 
sify the operators according to five characteristics. 

1 . Residence of operator — Farm operators were clas- 
sified by residence according to whether or not they 
lived on the farms they were operating. Some of 
those who did not live on the farms they operated 
lived on farms operated by others. If all the land was 
rented from others or worked on shares for others, 
the operator was considered to live on the farm 
operated if the dwelling was included in the rental 
agreement. In such cases, the dwelling was not 
necessarily on the farm operated. Similarly, an 
operator who did not live on the land being culti- 
vated, but who had some agricultural operations 
(other than a home garden) at his/her dwelling, was 
considered to be living on the farm operated. 

2. Year began operating present farm— Enumera- 
tors were instructed to obtain the year an operator 
began to operate the farm, i.e., the first year the 
operator took continuous charge of the present 
farm or any part of it. 

3. Age of operator— Operators were classified by 
age into six groups. The average age was obtained 
by dividing the sum of the ages of all operators 
reported by the number reported. 

4. Main occupation— If the operator devoted 50 per- 
cent or more of his/her work time to agricultural 
activities, his/her main occupation was considered 
to be agriculture, otherwise his/her occupation was 
considered nonagricultural. 

5. Work off farm— Only work by the operator for pay 
was to be reported. Days worked off the place were 
to include work at another farm or a nonfarm 
business, such as a store or repair shop; or at a 



1987 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



APPENDIX A A-3 



profession such as doctor, lawyer, or teacher. Exchange 
work or work done by the operator in exchange for 
comparable work done by someone else was not to 
be reported. 



FARMS CLASSIFIED BY SPECIFIED 
CHARACTERISTICS 

Tables 21 through 24 present detailed data for farms 
classified by specified characteristics — tenure of operator, 
size of farm, age of operator, and value of agricultural 
products sold. 

Farms by tenure of operator— Farms were classified 
by tenure of operator on the basis of information reported 
for land owned, rented from others, or worked on shares 
for others. During the processing operations, each ques- 
tionnaire was coded to indicate whether the farm operator 
was a full owner, a part owner, or a tenant. The various 
classifications of tenure are: 

• Full owners operate only land they own. 

• Part owners operate land they own plus land they rent 
from others. 

• Tenants only operate the land they rent from others 
or work on shares for others. 

Farms by size— Farms were classified by size on the 
basis of the total land area determined for each farm. 
According to the census definition, a farm is essentially an 
operating unit, not an ownership tract. All land operated or 
managed by one person or partnership represents one 
farm. In the case of tenants, the land assigned to each 
tenant is considered a separate farm even though the 
landlord may consider his/her entire land holding to be 
one unit rather than several separate units. 



Farms by age of operator — Farms were classified by 
age of operator on the basis of information reported to the 
enumerator that was entered on the report form. The 
operator's age was classified into one of the age groups 
found in table 23. 

Farms by value of agricultural products sold — Farms 
were classified on the basis of the total value of agricultural 
products sold. The total was obtained by adding the 
reported values of all products sold from the farm. The 
value of vegetables, field crops, fruits and nuts, nursery 
and ornamental plants, livestock, poultry, fish, and eggs 
was obtained from the operator at the time of enumeration. 
These values were classified into one of the groups found 
in table 24. 

CENSUS NONSAMPLING ERROR 

All data originated from a complete enumeration and, 
therefore, are not subject to sampling variability. However, 
the data are subject to nonsampling errors. Nonsampling 
errors can be attributed to many sources: 

• Inability to identify all cases in the actual universe. 

• Inability or unwillingness on the part of respondents to 
provide correct information. 

• Definition and classification difficulties. 

• Differences in the interpretation of questions. 

• Errors in recording or coding the data obtained. 

• Other errors of collection, response, coverage, and 
estimation for missing or misreported data. 

The accuracy of these tabulated data is determined by 
the joint effects of the various nonsampling errors. No 
direct measures of these effects have been obtained; 
however, precautionary steps were taken in all phases of 
data collection, processing, and tabulation of the data in an 
effort to minimize the effects of nonsampling errors.

the Virgin Islands of the United States, American Samoa, and the 
Northern Mariana Islands. The publications include statistics on 
the number of farms; land in farms; farm and operator character- 
istics; livestock, poultry, and their products; crop production and 
value; operating expenditures; irrigation; and other characteris- 
tics of farms.

Advance Reports are published separately for each county (or 
equivalent) in the United States with 10 farms or more, for each 
State, and the United States. The reports contain data for all 
agricultural operations with $1,000 or more in actual or potential 
sales of agricultural products in the census year. The Advance 
Reports contain final data for major data items together with 
comparable data from the 1982 census. Included in the reports 
are data on number of farms, land in farms, size of farms, land 
use practices, farm operator characteristics, sales expenditures, 
machinery and equipment, livestock, poultry, dairy products sold, 
and major crops harvested (which vary by State). No advance
