ACKNOWLEDGMENTS— Many persons participated in conducting the 
1982 Census of Agriculture. Primary direction was by Shirley Kaliek, 
Associate Director for Economic Fields (to May 1983), Charies 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 m 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 AIMD 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 reports. 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.

TAKING THE CENSUS 
Method of Enumeration 

All censuses beginning with the 1969 census have been con- 
ducted primarily by mail. The 1978 census was the only census 
to include a mailout/mailback enumeration supplemented by 
the direct interview of all households in a sample of area seg- 
ments. This combination of the mailout/mailback enumeration 
plus the area sample was used in 1978 to improve complete-, 
ness of coverage for U.S., regional, and State level agriculture 
census statistics. Due to budget reductions, the area sample was 
eliminated in 1982. 

In censuses prior to the 1969 census, enumerators were as- 
signed to specific areas and called on all farm operators within 
each area. Beginning with the 1950 census, copies of the report 
form were mailed prior to the enumeration date to each box- 
holder served by post offices in predominantly rural areas and 
farmers were asked to complete the forms and have them ready 
for the enumerator to pick up. 

The mailout/mailback enumeration procedure was not used 
in taking the agriculture census in Puerto Rico, Guam, and the 
Virgin Islands. A discussion of the direct enumeration methods 
used there appears in the reports for these outlying areas. A 
description of the special direct enumeration of citrus care- 
takers is included in the Definitions and Explanations section. 

Mail List 

The mail list for the 1982 census was comprised of all in- 
dividuals, businesses, and organizations that could be readily 
Identified as being associated with agriculture. The list was as- 
sembled from the records of the 1978 census and administra- 
tive records of various government agencies, primarily the 
Internal Revenue Service and the U.S. Department of Agri- 
culture (USDA). 

Lists of large or specialized operations, such as nurseries, 
specialty crop farms, broiler growers, fish farms, livestock 
farms, and cattle feedlot operations, were obtained from State 
and Federal agencies, trade associations, and similar organi- 
zations. Lists of multiestablishment companies having one or 
more establishments (or locations) producing agricultural pro- 
ducts were obtained from the 1978 census and updated using 



information from the Standard Statistical Establishment List 
maintained by the Census Bureau. 

A preliminary census mail list was assembled using names 
and addresses from the 1978 census and administrative source 
lists available in September 1981. Those records which were 
less likely to be farms were included in the 1982 Farm and 
Ranch Identification Survey. Approximately 3 million farm and 
ranch forms were mailed in March 1982 to names which ap- 
peared on only one source list or selected combinations of lists 
which had yielded a low percentage of farm operators in the 
1978 census. As a result of this survey, nonfarm names and 
addresses were deleted from the census mail list, new tenant 
and successor operations were added, and the names, addresses, 
and size information were updated for the identified active farm 
operators. 

The final census mail list was developed using results of the 
1982 Farm and Ranch Identification Survey, names and ad- 
dresses from the unduplicated preliminary list that were re- 
tained without precensus verification, and new or updated 
source lists acquired after the preliminary unduplication. The 
preliminary and final census mail lists were both constructed 
by merging and unduplicating the names and addresses from the 
various source lists on the basis of Employer Identification num- 
bers. Social Security numbers, and names and addresses. To faci- 
litate processing, each name on the administrative source lists 
was assigned a geographic code indicating the State and county 
location of the operation and a size code indicating an estimated 
value of sales. Most duplicates were identified and resolved 
prior to mailing. Other duplicate names were either reported 
by respondents or located during office processing. 

Report Forms 

In 1982, 12 regional report form versions were used. These 
forms were tailored primarily in sections 2 through 8 to list 
crops commonly produced in one or more States, and in sec- 
tion 15 to list livestock specialties produced. These modi- 
fications were made to enhance reporting of crop and live- 
stock data and to reduce respondent burden. 

Two report form versions were used to minimize the re- 
porting burden, particularly for small farms. Approximately 
75 percent of all farms received the 4-page nonsample form 
covering major items such as land use, crops, livestock and 
poultry, market value of agricultural products sold, and 
operator characteristics. The 5-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. The sample form contained all the items asked on the 
nonsample form plus the sample items (sections 22 through 28). 

The sample form and the information sheet appear in appen- 
dix C. The Statistical Adjustments section of this appendix 
includes a discussion of the criteria used to determine whether 
the sample or nonsample form was to be mailed to addressees. 



1982 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



APPENDIX A A-1 



Initial Mailing 

The report forms were mailed in late December 1982 to the 
approximately 3,653,000 individuals, businesses, and organiza- 
tions on the mail list. The information sheet containing in- 
structions for completing the form and a brochure explain- 
ing the uses of the census data were included with each report 
form. Additional special instructions were included with re- 
port forms sent to grazing associations; feedlot operations; in- 
stitutional organizations; and producers of poultry under con- 
tract, bees and honey, fish, laboratory animals, worms, and 
nursery and greenhouse products. 

In an effort to provide additional help to farmers in com- 
pleting their reports, copies of an Agriculture Census Guide 
booklet were sent to county agricultural agencies. Institutions, 
or businesses to whom farmers might turn for help. Included 
were vocational agriculture instructors, and USDA county 
offices— Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service, 
Farmers Home Administration, Soil Conservation Service, and 
Cooperative Extension Service. This guide contained descrip- 
tions and definitions for various 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 if requested. 

Followup Procedures 

The data collection effort included a reminder card and five 
followup letters, two of which were accompanied by a report 
form. Followup reminders were sent to nonrespondents on a 
flow basis at 3- to 4-week intervals starting in late February and 
continuing until late June 1983. In early April 1983, an addi- 
tional followup letter was sent to nonrespondents in low 
response counties in 14 States. 

Telephone calls were made to nonrespondents who were 
expected to have large operations (those with expected sales 
of $100,000 or more) or who were located in low response 
counties. 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 Statistical 
Adjustments section. 



DATA PROCESSING 

Selected report forms were reviewed prior to keying the data 
onto magnetic tape. These included reports with attached corre- 
spondence, and reports with remarks or no positive data on the 
front page. All new successors reported by former operators 
were researched to see if they had already been included in the 
census mailing. Report forms were mailed to successor addresses 
not located on the mail file. This processing improved the 
coverage of the census. 

The data for each report form were subjected to a detailed 
item-by-item computer edit. The edit performed cofnprehensive 
checks for consistency and reasonableness, 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. Significant computer- 
generated changes to the data were reviewed and verified. 

In the computer edit, farms with sales, acreage, or com- 
modities exceeding specified levels were tested for historical 
comparability. Key items, such as acreage and sales, were com- 
pared for significant changes between 1978 and 1982. Sizeable 



historical differences were resolved or verified, by telephone if 
necessary. 

Respondents who reported sales or acreage above specified 
levels on nonsample forms were sent correspondence requesting 
the additional sample data. Report forms with reported sales 
of $1,000,000 or more or 30,000 acres or more, and other 
selected problem reports were reviewed by statisticians in the 
Agriculture Division. Problems that could not be resolved by 
reference to other information on the report were resolved by 
contacting the respondents by telephone or correspondence. 

Prior to publication, tabulated totals were reviewed by 
statisticians to identify any inconsistencies and potential cover- 
age problems. Comparisons were made with previous census 
data, estimates published by the USDA and other available 
check data. Selected report forms were reviewed and problem 
entries were either verified as being correct or the data were 
corrected. 

MAJOR DATA CHANGES 

The content of the 1982 census report form is similar to 
that of the 1978 form. To limit respondent burden, the 1978 
and 1982 forms included only data items needed at the county 
level, either on a complete or sample basis. The 1978 census 
data items which were eliminated from the 1982 form include; 

Land held under foreign ownership 

Gallons purchased of gasoline; diesel fuel; LP gas, butane 
and propane; and fuel oil 
Animal health costs for livestock and poultry 

The following new data items were added to the 1982 re- 
port form: 

Interest expense for the farm business 

Source of irrigation water 

Year in which the operator began to operate the farm 

More extensive data on Commodity Credit Corporation 
(CCC) loans were collected in 1982. 



DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 

The following definitions and explanations provide a more 
detailed description of the terms used in this publication than 
are available in the tables or on the report form. For an exact 
wording of the questions on the 1982 census report forms and 
the information sheet vs/hich accompanied these forms, see 
appendix C. 

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 re- 
porting" 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 woodland and wasteland not 



A-2 APPENDIX A 



1982 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



actually under cultivation or used for pasture or grazing, pro- 
vided It was part of the farm operator's total operation. Large 
acreages of woodland or wasteland held for nonagrlcultural 
purposes were deleted from individual reports during the pro- 
cessing operations. 

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. Grazing land operated 
by grazing associations was to be reported by the person 
chiefly responsible for conducting the business of the associa- 
tion. All land in Indian reservations 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 
shown for 1982 represents the total land area as determined by 
records and calculations updated as of January 1, 1983. The 
county land areas were remeasured in 1980. The previous 
county measurements were done in 1940. Any differences be- 
tween the land area in 1982 and 1978 are due to these new 
measurements, 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 pro- 
duced. It was usually the county containing all or the largest 
proportion of the land in the farm or viewed by the respon- 
dent 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 1978 
census as having more than one farm unit. Other reports re- 
ceived showing land in more than one county were separated 
into two or more reports if the data would significantly 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 respondent's estimate of what 
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. 

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

Cropland used only for pasture or grazing— This category in- 
cludes land used only for pasture or grazing that could have 
been used for crops without additional improvement, and all 



land planted in crops that were grazed before the crops reached 
maturity. Also included was all cropland used for rotation pas- 
ture and land in government diversion programs that were 
pastured. However, cropland that was pastured after crops were 
harvested was not to be included. 

Other cropland— This category includes cropland used only for 
soil improvement crops, land on which all crops failed, culti- 
vated 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, 
and land planted for Christmas tree production. Land covered 
by sagebrush or mesquite was to be reported as other pasture- 
land and rangeland or other land. 

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

Other land— This category includes land in house lots, barn lots, 
ponds, roads, wasteland, etc. In 1974, for farms with sales of 
less than $2,500, this category included pastureland and range- 
land other than cropland and woodland pastured in addition to 
land in house lots, barn lots, ponds, roads, and wasteland. 

Land set aside in federal farm programs— This land includes land 
diverted or set aside under the provisions of the Federal Com- 
modity Acreage Reduction 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 
conservation uses. No information was obtained as to which 
crops would have been grown on the acres set aside. 

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. 

Operator— The term "operator" designates a person who oper- 
ates a farm, either doing the work or making day-to-day de- 
cisions about such things as planting, harvesting, feeding, 
marketing, etc. The operator may be the owner, a member of 
the owner's household, a salaried 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 partnerships, only one partner is counted as an operator. 
If there is no clear-cut partner 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 actu- 
ally in charge of the farm operations. 

Operator characteristics— Data on characteristics such as resi- 
dence, race, Spanish origin, age, sex, principal occupation, and 
off-farm work were collected from all operators in 1982. If 



1982 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



APPENDIX A A-3 



operator characteristics of race, age, sex, and principal occu- 
pation were not reported, they were derived based on infor- 
mation reported by farms with similar acreage size, tenure, 
and sales size. No imputations were made for nonresponse 
to place of residence, Spanish origin, off-farm work, or year 
began operation. For the 1982 and 1978 censuses, operators 
of Spanish origin were tabulated by reported race. Prior cen- 
suses included Spanish origin as "White" whenever separate 
data for the White race were shown. 



Selected farm production expenses— Since only selected pro- 
duction expenses incurred in 1982 were requested, the ex- 
pense data cannot be used in combination with gross sales 
to calculate net cash faim income. The 1979 Farm Finance 
Survey provided estimates on net cash farm income. 

In 1982, as in other recent censuses, operators producing 
crops, livestock, or poultry under contract frequently failed 
to report certain expenditure data. They often were unable 
or unwilling to estimate the cost of production inputs fur- 
nished by the contractors. As a consequence, the rate of impu- 
tation of expenditure data for these operations is considerably 
higher than it is for noncontract producers. 

Commercial fertilizer— The expense for commercial ferti- 
lizer is the amount spent on fertilizer during 1982, ex- 
cluding the cost of application. Some fertilizer purchased 
in 1982 may not have been applied during the year. If the 
fertilizer was applied by someone other than the operator, 
respondents were requested to report the cost of applica- 
tion as an expense for customwork, machine hire, and ren- 
tal of machinery and equipment. 

Other agricultural chemicals— These expenses include the 
cost of all insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, and other 
pesticides, excluding costs of application. Data exclude 
commercial fertilizer purchased. The cost of lime is included 
in the 1978 data, but excluded from 1982. 

Customwork, machine hire, and rental of machinery and 
equipment— These expenses include costs incurred for 
having customwork done on the place and for renting ma- 
chines to perform agricultural operations. The cost of cotton 
ginning is excluded. The cost of labor involved in the custom- 
work service is included in the customwork expense. The 
cost of labor for operating rented or hired machinery is in- 
cluded as a hired farm and ranch labor expense. 

Interest expense— Only the interest expense for the farm 
business was to be reported. Although instructions requested 
that interest on the owner/operator dwelling be excluded 
when separate records were available, it is probable that an 
undetermined amount of such nonfarm business interest was 
also reported. 

Energy and petroleum products— Respondents were asked to 
report only those expenses pertaining to the operation of 
the farm business. 



Storage capacity-This category applies to those farms reporting 
expenditures for the specific kind of fuel. The storage capacity 
was to be reported even if not used during the census year. 



Farms with storage capacity reported as "no"— This category 
includes farm operators with expenditures for a specific kind 
of fuel who also checked the "none" box for storage capacity. 
See appendix C, section 26, Expenditures for Energy. 

Market value of agricultural products sold— This category repre- 
sents the gross market value before taxes and production ex- 
penses of all agricultural products sold or removed from the 
place in 1982 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 
operation. In addition, it includes the loan value received in 
1982 for placing commodities in the CCC loan program. This 
ensures comparability with prior census years for market value 
of agricultural products sold. 

The value of agricultural products sold represents total sales 
of all crops, including nursery products sold, and livestock, 
poultry, and their products sold. It does not include income 
from farm-related sources such as customwork or agricultural 
services, or income from nonfarm sources. Sales of forest prod- 
ucts were not included in 1978 or 1982; but were included in 
1974. 

The value of crops sold in 1982 does not necessarily repre- 
sent the sales from crops harvested in 1982. Data may include 
sales from crops produced in earlier years and exclude some 
crops produced in 1982, 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 only the total value received in 1982. 

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

Caution should be used when comparing sales in 1982 with 
sales reported in earlier censuses due to the fluctuations in per- 
unit prices between census years. 

Income from machine work, customwork, and other agri- 
cultural services— This category consists of gross income re- 
ceived during 1982 by farm operators for providing services for 
others such as planting, plowing, spraying, harvesting, etc. In- 
come from machine work and other agricultural services is 
generally included in the agriculture census if it is supplement- 
al to the farming operation. However, it is excluded if it 
constitutes a separate establishment or is conducted from an- 
other location. The agricultural services part of a farming 
operation was generally considered a separate establishment 
when income from agricultural services was $10,000 or more 
and greater than the value of agricultural products sold. Due to 
legislative restrictions, data for establishments primarily en- 
gaged in agricultural services were not collected in 1982. 

Agricultural chemicals used, including fertilizer and lime— For 
each type of agricultural chemical, the acres treated were to be 
reported only 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 agri- 
culture census. Production in salt water is considered not to be 
in captivity and is excluded from the census. The value of fish 
and other aquacultural products sold and laboratory animals 



A-4 APPENDIX A 



1982 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



sold is included in the category "other livestock and livestock 
products." 

Bees and honey— Bee and honey production was enumerated 
and tabulated in the county in which the home farm was lo- 
cated even though hives are often moved from farm to farm 
over a wide geographic area. The completeness and accuracy 
of these data are affected by the fact that some bee operations 
may not have been on the mail list and some operators on the 
mail list may not have considered beekeeping to be an agri- 
cultural operation, and therefore did not report. 

Citrus enumeration- In the 1982 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 complete the census report. Each citrus care- 
taker was enumerated as a farm operator and requested to com- 
plete 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 caretaker was also 
requested to inform the grove owner that he had already re- 
ported for the citrus under his care and that the grove owner 
was not to report the citrus again. In the 1982 census, 8 care- 
takers in Arizona reported 210 grove owners having 13,000 
acres of citrus; the 99 caretakers in Florida reported 5,900 
grove owners having 250,000 acres of citrus; and 21 caretakers 
in Texas reported 1,500 grove owners having 30,000 acres of 
citrus. 

Crop year or season covered— Acres and quantity harvested are 
for the calendar year 1982 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 1981 through July 1982 harvest 
season, except limes that were harvested in the April 1982 
through March 1983 harvest season. The data for Texas 
relate to the quantity harvested in the September 1981 
through May 1982 harvest season. The data for States, other 
than Florida and Texas, relate to the quantity harvested in 
the 1981-82 harvest season. 

Avocados— The data for California relate to the quantity 
harvested in the November 1981 through November 1982 
harvest season and for Florida the April 1982 through 
March 1983 harvest season. 

0//Ves— The data for California relate to the quantity har- 
vested in the September 1981 through March 1982 harvest 
season. 

Vegetab/es— The data for Florida relate to the crop harvested 
in the September 1981 through August 1982 harvest season. 

Sugarcane for sugar— The data for Florida relate to the cut- 
tings from November 1981 through April 1982, and for 
Texas the cuttings from October 1981 through April 1982. 



Pineapples— The data for Hawaii relate to the quantity har- 
vested in the year ending May 31, 1982. 

Coffee— The data for Hawaii relate to the 1981-82 crop. 

Acres and quantity harvested— Crops were reported in whole 
acres, except for the following crops which were reported in 
lOths of acres: Irish potatoes, sweetpotatoes, tobacco, fruit and 
nut crops including land in orchards, berries, vegetables, and 
nursery and greenhouse products; 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 ex- 
ceeds the acres of cropland harvested. The 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 crop or silage would be reported 
for each applicable crop. For interplanted 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— crop- 
land 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 to be reported as cropland pasture. 

Quantity harvested was not obtained for crops such as vege- 
tables; nursery and greenhouse products; 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. 

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 re- 
ported in a unit of measure different than the unit of measure 
published, the quantity harvested was converted to the pub- 
lished 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.

APPENDIX A A-5 



Write-in crops— To reduce the length of the report form, only 
the nnajor 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 as- 
signed 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 prooer coding, most of 
these respondents were telephoned. Reports for those not 
telephoned were changed on the basis of other reports for the 
area. 

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 corrected. Reports with significant acres 
of unusual crops for the area were examined to minimize the 
possibility that they were in error. 

Changes in crop wording— Changes were made to the wording of 
selected crop items on the 1982 census forms. These items are 
listed with the wording used in 1978. The 1982 and 1978 data 
are comparable for all items, except improved pecans and wild 
and seedling pecans which were combined. 

Dry edible beans, excluding dry limas—Jhe 1978 wording 
was "dry field and seed beans." 

Dry edible peas— The 1978 wording was "dry field and seed 
peas". Dry edible peas exclude Austrian winter peas, wrin- 
kled seed peas, and southern peas or cowpeas. 

Green cowpeas and green southern peas; cowpeas and south- 
ern peas for dry peas— The wording for these items was 
changed for 1982 to include the term "southern peas," a 
more common term for cowpeas. 

Honey tangerines— The 1978 wording was "murcotts.". 

Other tangerines— The 1978 wording was "tangerines and 
mandarins." 

Pecans— The 1978 categories "improved pecans" and "wild 
and seedling pecans" have been combined into "pecans" for 
1982. 

"See text" References 

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

Data are based on a sample of farms— For 1982 and 1978, selec- 
ted data were collected from only a sample of farms. These data 
are subject to sampling error. For 1982, the 5-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 22 through 28 of the 1982 census forms 
include inquiries on commercial fertilizer and lime, chemicals, 
interest expense, machinery and equipment, expenditures for 
energy and petroleum products, selected production expenses, 
and value of land and buildings. Estimates of the reliability of 
county totals for selected items are shown in table E. 

Principal source of irrigation water— The acres irrigated by 
principal source were derived based on reported percentages 
of water obtained by source. See appendix C for an example 
of section 11, Land Irrigated. When irrigation water was ob- 
tained from two or more sources, the acres irrigated were 
included only once under the source from which the largest 
percentage of water was obtained. 

1974 data apply only to Individual or family operations (sole 
proprietorships) and partnerships— For 1974, farm operator 
characteristics were not collected from corporations, coopera- 
tives, prison farms, grazing associations, and Indian reservations. 
For 1982 and 1978, characteristics and occupation of the senior 
partner or person in charge were collected from all farms. 

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

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

Farms reporting no interest expense— This category includes 
only reports without dollars reported and the "no" box checked 
for the yes/no screening question in section 24. See appendix 
C for an example of section 24, Interest Expense. 

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 products, and hay. Respondents 
were asked to include landlords' and contractors' shares. As in 
prior census years, the value of commodities placed in CCC 
loans are included as sold. Sales of forest products were not 
included in 1978 or 1982. The 1974 data included sales of 
forest products from those places qualifying as farms through 
other agricultural production. 

Farms with sales of less than $2,500-ln 1982 and 1978, this 
category included all farms, except abnormal farms, with ac- 
tual sales of less than $2,500. In 1974, farms with sales of less 
than S2,500 but having the production potential for sales of 
$2,500 and over are included in the category "$2,500 to 
$4,999." 

Farms with sales of less than $1,000— This category includes all 
farms, except abnormal farms, with actual sales of less than 
$1,000 but having the production potential for sales of $1,000 
or more. 

Abnormal farms— This category includes institutional farms, 
experimental and research farms, and Indian reservations. In- 
stitutional farms include those operated by hospitals, peni- 



A-6 APPENDIX A 



1982 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



tentiaries, churches, schools, grazing associations, government 
agencies, etc. In prior censuses, a number of nongovernmental 
units such as church farms and FFA camps were classified as 
abnormal farms. In 1982, such nongovernmental units were 
classified as abnormal farms only when 50 percent or more 
of their products produced and intended for human consump- 
tion were utilized bv the organization. 

Value of agricultural products sold directly to Individuals 
for human consumption— This category represents the value 
of agricultural products produced and sold directly to in- 
dividuals for human consumption from roadside stands, farm- 
ers' markets, pick-your-own sites, etc. It excludes nonedible 
products such as nursery products, cut flowers, wool, etc. Sales 
of agricultural products by vertically integrated operations 
through their own processing and marketing operations were 
excluded. - 

Other livestock and livestock products— This category 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 ob- 
tained primarily from data published by the Statistical Re- 
porting 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 
during the year and placed or sold. Incubator egg capacity on 
December 31, 1982, is tabulated under the column heading In- 
ventory and the number of poultry hatched is under the heading 
Sales. 

Worms— Worm inventory consists of the number of standard 
worm beds in production. A standard worm bed is considered 
to be 24 cubic feet. Sales of worms are shown in pounds. Sales 
of worm castings are included in other livestock products 
sold. 

Hay— alfalfa, other tame, small grain, wild, grass silage, green 
chop, etc.— Data shown for hay represent all hay crops, in- 
cluding grass silage, haylage, and hay crops cut and fed green 
(green chop). In production data, dry tons represent dry 
tonnage for the various hay categories and dry weight equiva- 
lents 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, lespe- 
deza, timothy, Bermuda grass, Sudan grass, and other types of 
legume and tame grasses. 

Grass silage, haylage, and green chop hay-The 1978 categories 
"grass silage and haylage" and "hay crops cut and fed green 
(green chop)" have been combined into "grass silage, hay- 
lage, and green chop hay" in 1982. 

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 

1982 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



have been converted to pounds fresh weight. The conversion 
used was 4.3 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 quan- 
tities of plums and prunes harvested have been converted to 
pounds fresh weight. The conversion used was 3 pounds fresh 
weight to 1 pound dry weight. 

Almonds— In 1982, the quantity of almonds harvested was re- 
ported in pounds of meats. For 1978, the quantity harvested 
was reported in the shell. 

Other fruits and nuts— Data shown for other fruits and nuts 
relate to any fruits and nuts not having a specific code on the 
1982 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 vegetables harvested 
is the summation of the acres of individual vegetables harvested. 
All of the individual vegetable items may not be shown. 

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

Other grains-These data are for the total market value of other 
grains sold including dry edible beans, dry lima beans, buck- 
wheat, cowpeas and southern peas for dry peas', emmer and 
spelt, flaxseed, mixed grains, lentils, mustard seed, dry edible 
peas, popcorn, proso millet, rice, rye for grain, safflower, sun- 
flower seed, triticale, and wild rice. 

Value of crop production— This item represents the estimated 
value of all crops harvested during the 1982 crop year. Data for 
the value of crops harvested were obtained by multiplying the 
average estimated value per unit by the reported acres or quan- 
tity 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 in most part from publications of 
the Statistical Reporting Service, USDA. When 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 knowledgeable about specific crops. 

FARMS CLASSIFIED BY SPECIFIED 
CHARACTERISTICS 

State tables 44 through 50 present detailed 1982 data for all 
farms classified by specified characteristics— tenure of operator, 
type of organization, age and principal occupation 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. 

APPENDIX A A-7 



Farms by value of agricultural products sold or value of sales— In 
1982, all farms except abnormal farms were tabulated by size 
based on reported sales. Thus, the category "farms with sales 
of $2,500 to $4,999" included only farms with actual sales of 
$2,500 to $4,999. Abnormal farms were not tabulated based 
on actual or potential sales. The category "farms with sales of 
less than $1,000" included all farms, except abnormal farms, 
with actual sales of less than $1,000 but having the production 
potential for sales of $1,000 or more. 

The sales size categories have been changed to be consistent 
with the standard business size categories issued by the Office 
of Management and Budget in 1982. Sales size categories 
"$100,000 to $249,999" and "$250,000 to $499,999" are used 
in this report; whereas, sales size categories "$100,000 to 
$199,999" and "$200,000 to $499,999" were used in prior 
censuses. In State table 11 and county table 3, the 1978 census 
data have been retabulated Into the new sales size categories. 

Farms by tenure of operator— The classifications of tenure used 
in the 1982 census were: 

Full owners, who operate only land they own. 

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 classified by 
type of organization in the 1982 census. The classifications used 
were: 

Individual or family operation (sole proprietorship), ex- 
cluding partnership and corporation. 

Partnership operation, including family partnership. 

Corporation, including family corporation. 

Other, such as cooperative, estate or trust, institutional 
farm, etc. 

Corporations were subclassified by two additional charac- 
teristics into: 

a. Family held 

Other than family held 

b. More than 10 stockholders 
10 or less stockholders 

Farms by age and principal occupation of operator— Data on age 

and principal occupation were obtained from all operators in 
1982. The principal occupation classifications used were: 

Farming— The operator spent 50 percent or more of his/her 
worktime in 1982 in farming or ranching. 

Other— The operator spent more than 50 percent of his/her 
worktime in 1982 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 1982, all agri- 
cultural production establishments (farms, ranches, nurseries, 
greenhouses, etc.) were classified by type of activity or activities 
using the standard industrial classification (SIC) system. These 
classifications, found in the 1972 SIC Manual' , are used to 
promote uniformity and comparability in the presentation of 
statistical data collected by various agencies. 

An establishment primarily engaged in crop production 
(major group 01) or livestock production (major group 02) is 
classified in the 4-digit industry and 3-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 
agricultural products of an establishment is less than 50 percent 
from a single 4-digit industry, but 50 percent or more from the 
products of two or more 4-digit industries within the same 3- 
digit industry group, the establishment is classified in the mis- 
cellaneous 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. 

Characteristics of all farms by selected SIC groupings are 
shown in State tables 15 and 50. The SIC groupings shown in 
State table 50, together with the associated products (value 
of sales representing 50 percent or more of the value of agri- 
cultural products sold during the year) on which the classi- 
fication is based, are as follows: 

Cash grains (01 1)— Wheat, rice, corn, soybeans, barley, buck- 
wheat, cowpeas, dry field and seed beans and peas, emmer, 
field seeds, flaxseed, lentils, mustard seed, oats, popcorn, rye, 
safflower, sorghum, and other small grains. 

Cotton (0131)— Cotton and cottonseed. 

Tobacco (0132)— Tobacco. 

Sugar crops, Irish potatoes, hay, peanuts, and other field 
crops (0133, 0134, O/JS^— Sugarcane, sugar beets, Irish 
potatoes, alfalfa, broomcorn, clover, flax, hay, hops, mint, 
peanuts, sweetpotatoes, and timothy. 

Vegetables and melons ^O/fi^- Vegetables and melons grown 
in the open. 

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

Horticultural specialties (018)— Ornamental plants; nursery 
products, such as bulbs, florists' greens, flowers, shrubbery, 
flower and vegetable seeds and plants, and sod; mushrooms 
and vegetables grown under cover. 

General farms, primarily crops (019)— Crops, including hor- 
ticultural specialties, but less than 50 percent of sales from 
any single 3-digit industry group. Includes farms with no 
agricultural products sold reporting cropland harvested or 
cropland on which all crops failed. 

Livestock, except dairy, poultry, and animal specialties 
(021)-Catt\e, calves, hogs, sheep, goats, goat's milk, wool, 
and mohair.

reportmg livestock or pasture. 



STATISTICAL ADJUSTMENTS 

The 1982 Census of Agriculture used two types of statis- 
tical adjustments— nonresponse and sample. These adjustments 
were necessary because, as noted previously, not all farms were 
surveyed for all items and some farms failed to respond to the 
numerous attempts to contact them. 

Nonresponse 

Farms for which no response was obtained from the mailout/ 
mailback self -enumeration procedure were classified as "large" 
or "small" based on expected sales being above or below 
$100,000. The small nonrespondents were classified even further 
using other mail list characteristics. 

A short report form was then sent to a sample selected from 
the various classifications of small farms to obtain information 
needed to develop a State estimate of the number of nonre- 
spondents that were in fact farms. If this second report form was 
not returned, then a telephone follow-up was attempted. 

For all large farms, a telephone follow-up was conducted. 
Some operators could not be contacted or they refused 
to cooperate. In these cases, secondary sources such as 
ASCS county offices, extension agents, and previous census 
reports were utilized whenever possible to provide reports for 
tabulation. 

State estimates of the percentage of nonrespondent farms 
were made for several strata. These estimates were then used to 
make estimates at the county level for each stratum. Respondent 
farms were then randomly selected within county stratum to 
represent the noniespondent farms by having a nonresponse 
weight of two. All other respondent farms had a nonresponse 
weight of one. 

The nonresponse adjustment procedure makes the assump- 
tion that the respondents and the nonrespondents have similar 
statistical properties. Also, the use of secondary sources for 
some large farms and the fact that a percentage of the sampled 
farms were not contacted by either mail or telephone is assumed 
not to affect the estimates for nonrespondents. 

Table A partially measures the effect of nonresponse on 
selected major items at the State level. This estimate of the non- 
response rate measures only the effect of small whole farm 
nonresponse. The effect of the adjustment for nonresponse 
due to complete nonresponse among large farms and item 



nonresponse among all farms is not included in table A. The 
percentages in table A indicate the potential for bias in pub- 
lished figures resulting from small farm nonresponse. However, 
large farm nonresponse does not necessarily indicate bias. 
Individual county nonresponse rates may differ substantially 
from the State value in table A. 

Saniple 

Report forms containing additional sample inquiries (sec- 
tions 22 through 28) were mailed to all farms in Alaska and 
Hawaii and to a sample of farms identified when the mail list 
was constructed. Other farms were selected into the sample 
with certainty because they were expected to be "large," to 
have a complex organizational structure, or to have special 
characteristics. The definition of large varied by State, from a 
low of 1,000 acres or $100,000 sales to a high of 10,000 acres 
or $500,000 sales. The median State level for the continental 
United States was 1,800 for acres and $150,000 for sales. 
Large farms identified during processing also were included with 
certainty by sending the respondents a supplemental form con- 
taining only sample questions. In addition to large farms, all 
farms in counties containing less than 100 farms in 1978 and 
all farms in SIC groups with a small number of farms at the 
State level in 1978 were included in the sample with certainty. 
Farms in counties containing 100 to 199 farms in 1978 were 
sampled at a rate of 1 in 2. Farms in counties containing 200 or 
more farms in 1978 were sampled at a rate of 1 in 6. 

The noncertainty samples were stratified into 128 strata 
formed by the 8 sales groups, 8 SIC groups, and 2 acre groups.

This post -stratification was done to improve precision and to 
reduce the bias in all estimates by weighting the sample farms 
within stratum by the ratio of total farms to sample farms. If 
the calculated weight was greater than 12 in counties sampled 
at a rate of 1 in 6, or greater than 4 in counties sampled at a 
rate of 1 in 2, then the post-stratum was collapsed into another 
post-stratum. Collapsing of post-stratum also occurred if the 
stratum contained fewer than 10 sample farms.

APPENDIX A A-9 



Estimates were prepared for items in sections 22 through 28 
of the report form by multiplying the data Item for each farm in 
the sample by the sample weight assigned the farm. The weight 
for a certainty farm was 1. Sample weights for the final post- 
strata ranged from 1 to 24 because all exact weights (census 
total number of farms divided by the number of sample farms 
in the stratum) were converted to integers by a simple algorithm 
and then multiplied by 1 or 2 (the nonresponse weight). 



NONSAMPLING ERRORS 

Each census or survey is subject to error. In addition to 
sampling variability, errors arise from nonsample sources such 
as incorrect or incomplete reporting, processing, and the in- 
ability to obtain a report from each eligible reporting unit. For 
example, an operator may report the number of hogs and pigs 
sold but may not report the value of the sale. In other cases, 
the respondent indicated the presence of an item but not the 
quantity. The accuracy of a census count is determined by the 
joint effects of sampling and nonsampling errors. Thus, extensive 
efforts were made to keep errors introduced during clerical and 
electronic processing to a minimum level through the use of 
quality control, verification, and check measures on specific 
operations. 



CENSUS COVERAGE 

Although a complete and accurate count of farms, land in 
farms, and farm production is the aim of each nationwide 
census of agriculture, the complex structure of America's agri- 
culture makes this difficult to achieve. Among the complexi- 
ties are the many places to be included, the variety of arrange- 
ments under which farms are operated, the continuing changes 
in the relationship of operators to the farm operated, the 
expiration of leases and the initiation or renewal of leases, the 
problem of obtaining a complete list of agricultural operations, 
the difficulty of locating and identifying some types of farms, 
the operator's absence from the farm during the data collection 
period, and the operator's opinion that part or all of the opera- 
tion does not qualify and should not be included in the census. 

An evaluation of coverage has been conducted for each 
census of agriculture since 1945. Although the primary purpose 
of these evaluations is to identify problem areas and supply 
evidence as a basis for improvements, they also provide users of 
census data with estimates of the completeness of the census 
counts. The results of the coverage evaluation study were pub- 
lished for the 1978 census in Volume 5, Special Reports, part 3. 
An evaluation of coverage was conducted in 1982 to measure 
the extent of the undercount and overcount of farms in the 
census. A description of this evaluation will be in a separate 
Coverage Evaluation report. This report includes estimates of the 
net percentage of all farms, acres, and sales missed in the census. 

Classification Problems 

In 1978, the proportion of farms missed due to misclassifica- 
tion (1.8 percent) was higher for farms with small values of 
sales. The rate of misclassification was higher on (1 ) crop farms 
than livestock farms, (2) farms with a small number of acres 
than larger farms, or (3) tenant farms than full or part-owner 
farms. Full owners were misclassified more often than part 
owners. Farm operators over 55 years of age were misclassi- 
fied more often than younger operators. 



An evaluation study of classification errors was conductbv^ 
in the 1982 Census of Agriculture and will be reported in 
Coverage Evaluation. A sample of mail list respondents was 
selected, and these addresses reenumerated to determine 
whether they were a farm or nonfarm. Two types of errors were 
identified; missed farms and overcounted farms. Missed farms 
were farm operations included on the mail list but classified in 
the census as nonfarms. Overcounted operations were non- 
farm operations classified in the census as farms. 

Mail List Problems 

A major problem with the use of a mail list is the failure to 
include all farms on the list. In 1978, approximately 10.8 per- 
cent of all farms were not included on the census mail list. 
There were several reasons for the farm operator's names not 
being included on the mail list— the operation may have been 
started after the mail list source was developed; the operation 
may not have been included on any source list used to con- 
struct the mail list; or the operation may have been removed 
from the list because of incorrectly identifying duplicates or 
falsely classifying it as a nonfarm prior to mailout. 

A great many of the farms not included on the mail list were 
small in both acres and sales. The operator in many cases had 
a full time off-farm job and farmed part time. In 1978, the 
average size of farms and sales for all farms and farms not on 
mail list is given below.

RELIABILITY OF CENSUS ESTIMATES 

The sources of possible sampling and nonsampling errors 
have been previously discussed. Some sources affected all the 
data; others affected only certain items or geographic levels. The 
results of these errors, bias and increased variability, are difficult 
to measure. 

Census items were classified as either 100-percent or sample 
items. The 100-percent items were those asked of all farm 
operators. These included land in farms, harvested cropland, 
livestock inventory and sales, and crop acreages and quantities 
(sections 1 to 21 of the census report form). Variability in the 
100-percent items is due to the variation associated with non- 
response imputation and response error. Estimation of this 
variation results in a standard error of an estimate originating 
in the selection of the sample of small nonrespondents at the 
State level. Sample items were items asked of approximately 
1 in 4 farm operators and include value of land and building, 
value of farm machinery, energy expenses, and selected farm 
production expenses, such as hired farm labor and interest 
expense (sections 22 to 28 of the census report form). Varia- 
bility in estimates of sample items is the effect of the sample 
selection and estimation procedure and all the factors affecting 
the variability of 100-percent items. 

In the 1982 Census of Agriculture, the sample used is one of 
a large number of all possible samples of the same size that 
could have been selected using the same sample design. Esti-

1982 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



mates derived from the different samples would differ from 
each other. The difference between a sample estimate and the 
average of all possible samples is called the sampling deviation. 
The standard or sampling 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 average result of 
all possible samples. The relative standard error of estimate 
(percent) is defined as the standard error of the estimate divided 
by the value being estimated. 

As calculated for this report, the standard error of the esti- 
mate (percent) partially measures the effect of certain non- 
sampling errors but does not measure any systematic biases 
in the data. Bias is the difference, averaged over all possible 
samples, between the estimate and the desired value. The 
accuracy of a survey result depends on both the sampling and 
nonsampling errors measured by the relative standard error of 
the estimate (percent) and the bias and other types of non- 
sampling error not measured. 

If all possible samples were selected, each of those surveyed 
under essentially the same conditions, and an estimate and its 
estimated standard error were calculated from each sample 
then: 

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

b. Approximately 95 percent of the intervals from two 
standard errors below the estimate to two standard 
errors above the estimate would include the average 
value of all possible samples. 

To illustrate the computations involved in the above confi- 
dence statements as related to average value of land and build- 
ing estimates, assume that an estimate of a average value of land 
and buildings published for a particular county is $276,741 and 
the relative standard error of the estimate (percent) for this 
estimate, as given in table D, is 2.8 percent, or 0.028. Multi- 
plying $276,741 by 0.028 yields $7,749. Therefore, a 67- 
percent confidence interval is $268,992 to $284,490 (i.e.. 



$276,741 plus or minus $7,749). 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 complete 
enumeration. Similarly, a 95-percent confidence interval Is 
$261,243 to $292,239 (i.e., $276,741 plus or minus 
2 X $7,749). 

Tables B and C present the reliability of the estimates of 
the number of farms reporting a 100-percent or sample item 
at the county level. Both tables contain relative standard 
errors of estimate (percent) which were weighted over all 
counties in the State to arrive at an estimated value. In county 
table 12, for example, in column 2 the number of farms 
reporting hog and pig inventory is 9. From table B, an 
approximate relative standard error of estimate (percent) for the 
number of farms reporting hogs and pigs would be 1.7. 

Table D presents State estimates of major items for all farms 
and for all farms with sales of $10,000 or more and measures 
of their reliability. The estimate and the relative standard error 
of the estimate (percent) is given for selected 100-percent and 
sample items. The relative standard error of the estimate (percent) 
measures the variation associated with the small whole farm 
nonresponse adjustment. It does not measure census variability 
associated with complete nonresponse among large farms, partial 
or item nonresponse among all farms, response error or content 
error. The relative standard error of estimate (percent) for 
sample items measures both nonsampling and sampling error. It 
measures the variation associated with selecting a sample to 
estimate sample items as well as variability associated with 
adjustment for small farm nonresponse. The reliability of 
county estimates may vary substantially from each other and 
will usually be larger than the State estimate. 

Table E presents the estimate of reliability at the county 
level for four major 100-percent items and six sample items. The 
relative standard error of the estimate (percent) for the same 
item differs among counties in a State. Reasons for this are: 

(1) differences among counties in the total number of farms, 

(2) the number of large farms included with certainty, (3) the 
size classifications of farms sampled, (4) the amount of non- 
response, (5) the general agricultural characteristics, and (6) 
the specific characteristic being measured.

1982 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



APPENDIX A A-13 



APPENDIX B. 
Effect of the Area Sample on Census Comparability 



The 1982 and 1978 Censuses were conducted 
primarily by mail. Despite every effort to assemble a 
complete list, a small portion of the Nation's farms were 
not included on the census mail list. To improve the 
coverage of the 1978 Census, especially in counting the 
number of small farms, the mail-out/mail-back 
enumeration was supplemented by the direct 
enumeration of all households in a sample of areas in 
all States, except Alaska and Hawaii. Due to budget 
reductions, the direct enumeration sample was 
eliminated in the 1982 Census. 

In late 1978, enumerators visited all households in 
approximately 6,400 segments in rural areas (areas with 
less than 2,500 population) and completed a census 
form for each agricultural operation. These forms were 
then matched to the census mail list. Data from those 
cases which were not matched to the mail list were 
used to estimate the number and characteristics of 
farms not on the mail list at the State, regional, and 
national levels. No county-level estimates were 
developed because the area sample size was 
insufficient for reliable estimates at that level. 



The U.S., region, and State data for 1978 shown in 
the 1978 Census of Agriculture publications included 
data for farms represented on the mail list plus 
estimates from the area sample for farms not on the 
mail list. To provide comparable data for 1982 and 
1978, estimates from the area sample have been 
subtracted from the 1978 data. Thus, all 1978 data 
presented in the 1982 Census of Agriculture publications 
include data only for farms on the 1978 mail list. 

In 1978, the area sample farms accounted for 9 
percent of all farms in the United States, but only 1 
percent of the total value of agricultural products sold 
and 1 percent of the land in farms. The area sample 
farms represented 25 percent of all farms with sales of 
less than $2,500. The contribution of the area sample 
farms to the total farm count varied widely by State, 
from a low of 2.0 percent in North Dakota to a high of 
23.8 percent in New Hampshire. 

The following table shows the 1982 results and 
adjusted 1978 data for farms on the mail list, as well as 
1978 data which include estimates for farms not on the 
mail list.
