ACKNOWLEDGMENTS— Many persons partici|3ated in conducting the 
1982 Census of Agriculture. Primary direction was by Shirley Kaliek, 
Associate Director for Economic Fields (to May 1983), Charles A. Waite, 
her successor, and Michael G. Farrell, Assistant Director for Economic 
and Agriculture Censuses. 

This report was prepared in the Agriculture Division under the general 
supervision of Orvin L. Wilhite, Chief (to January 1980); Arnold L. 
Bollenbacher, Chief (to June 1982); and John H. Berry, Chief (from 
July 1982). 

Many divisions contributed to this report. Data Preparation performed 
the clerical processing; Administrative Services provided the forms design 
and other administrative services; Publications Services contributed in 
publication planning and design, editorial review, composition, and 
printing procurement; Computer Services provided the computer proc- 
essing facilities; Field provided selected data collection activities; and 
Economic Surveys assisted in preparation of data collection and proc- 
essing procedures and computer programs. 

Members of the Census Advisory Committee on Agriculture Statistics 
and representatives of both public and private organizations made signifi- 
cant 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 census of agriculture provides a periodic statistical pic- 
ture of the Nation's farming, ranching, and related activities. 
The 1982 Census of Agriculture is the 22d taken 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 agri- 
culture was taken for the years ending in 4 and 9. In 1976, 
Congress authorized the census of agriculture to be taken for 
1978 and 1982 to adjust the data reference year to coincide 
with the 1982 Economic Censuses covering manufacturing, 
mining, construction, retail trade, wholesale trade, service in- 
dustries, and selected transportation activities. After 1982, the 
agriculture census will revert to a 5-year cycle and be taken 
covering years ending in 2 and 7. 

USES OF THE CENSUS 

The census of agriculture is the leading source of statistics 
about the Nation's agriculture and the only source of con- 
sistent, comparable data about agriculture 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 
affecting agriculture 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 statis- 
tics to provide a more effective production and distribution 
system for the farm 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 
the census be taken in 1979, in 1983, and in every fifth year 
after 1983 covering the prior year. The 1982 census includes 
each State, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands of the 
United States. 



FARM DEFINITION 

Since 1850, when minimum criteria defining a farm for 
census purposes were first established, the farm definition has 
been changed nine times. The current definition, first used for 
the 1974 final reports, is any place from which $1,000 or more 
of agricultural products were sold or normally would have been 
sold during the census year. The previous definition (used for 
the 1959, 1964, and 1969 censuses, and for the 1974 pre- 
liminary reports) was any place with less than 10 acres from 
which $250 or more of agricultural products were sold or 
normally would have been sold during the census year, or 
any place of 10 acres or more from which $50 or more of agri- 
cultural products were sold or normally would have been 
sold during the census year. 



COMPARABILITY OF DATA 

All censuses since 1969 were conducted primarily by mail. 
To improve the coverage of the 1978 census, especially in 
counting the number of small farms, the mailout/mailback 
enumeration was supplemented by the direct enumeration 
of all households in approximately 6,400 sample segments in 
rural areas in all States, except Alaska and Hawaii. Due to 
budget reductions, the direct enumeration area sample was 
eliminated for 1982. 

The U.S., region, and State data for 1978 shown in the 1978 
Census of Agriculture publications included data for farms re- 
presented on the mail list plus estimates from the area sample 
for farms not on the mail list. The 1978 county data included 
only farms represented on the mail list as the sample was not 
large enough to provide reliable estimates for each county. 

To provide comparable data for 1982 and 1978, estimates 
from the 1978 area sample have been subtracted from the 1978 
data. Thus, the 1978 data in this report include only farms re- 
presented on the mail list. Appendix B includes a detailed dis- 
cussion of the effect of the area sample on census compa- 
rability. 

In general, data for 1982, 1978, and 1974 are not fully com- 
parable with data for 1969 and earlier censuses due to changes 
in the farm definition. Data on acreages and inventories for 
1982 and 1978 are generally comparable. Dollar figures shown 
for expenses and agricultural product sales have not been 
adjusted for changes in price levels between census years. 



TABULAR PRESENTATION 

State data-in chapter 1, State tables 1 through 43 show de- 
tailed State level data usually accompanied by historical data 
for one or more past censuses. Tables 44 through 50 provide 
1982 State data cross-tabulated by various farm classifications. 

County data-Selected data items are presented by county in 
chapter 2. Tables 1 through 16 include general data for all 
counties. The counties are listed in alphabetical order in the 



1982 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



INTRODUCTION V 



column headings. In tables 17 through 36, only counties re- 
porting the data item are included in the table stub. Counties 
not having the item, or with a limited number of farms re- 
porting the item, are not listed separately. Data for these 
counties are combined and presented as "all other counties." 

PRELIMINARY REPORTS 

Preliminary reports have been published separately for each 
county with 10 farms or more in 1982, each State, and the 
United States. This series provided, at the earliest possible date, 
information on major data items together with comparable 
final data from the 1978 census. The data items were standard 
except in tables 4 and 5 where the selected crops varied by 
State according to their relative importance. 

For farms, land in farms, livestock inventories, and other 
major items at the county level, differences between the pre- 
liminary and final figures are generally less than 5 percent. At 
the State level, differences are significantly less. 

MICROFICHE AND COMPUTER TAPES 

The data in this report and final data for individual counties 
are available on microfiche. The final microfiche county tables 
have the same format as the county preliminary report. Also, 
computer tapes are available for the same summary statistics 
that are found in the preliminary and volume 1 reiwrts. Micro- 
fiche reports are sold by the Superintendent of Documents, 
U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402. 
Computer tapes are sold by the Customer Services Branch, Data 
User Services Division, Bureau of the Census, Washington, 
D.C. 20233. 



Inquiries about the availability and cost of unpublished tabula- 
tions 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 is not considered a dis- 
closure, so this' information may be given even though other 
information is withheld. 



DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 

Appendix A includes definitions and explanations of selected 
terms used in the tables. 



"SEE TEXT" REFERENCE 

Items in the tables which are followed by the reference 
"see text" are explained or defined in appendix A. 



INVENTORIES, PRODUCTION, AND SALES DATA 

Inventories of livestock, poultry, and machinery and equip- 
ment are as of December 31 of the census year. Crop and live- 
stock production, sales, and expense data are for the calendar 
year, except for a few crops (such as citrus) for which the pro- 
duction year overlaps the calendar year.
