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), and Michael G. 
Farrell, Assistant Director for Economic and Agriculture Censuses. 

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

The report form content was prepared by the Outlying Areas Branch 
of the Agriculture Division, Bureau of the Census, in cooperation with the 
Department of Agriculture of the Virgin Islands. 

The census data were collected under the direction of the Governor of 
the Virgin Islands, the Honorable Juan Luis. The actual collection of the 
data was performed by census enumerators under the supervision of 
Otis F. Hicks, Project Leader. Clerical processing was performed in the 
Virgin Islands central processing office. 

Many census divisions contributed to this report. Administrative 
Services provided the forms design and other administrative services; 
Publications Services contributed in publication planning and design, 
editorial review, composition, and printing procurement; Geography pro- 
vided the maps; and Computer Services provided the computer processing 
facilities. 



Special tribute is paid to the many farm and ranch operators who fur- 
nished the information requested. Only through their cooperation was it 
possible to collect and publish the data in this report.

AUTHORITY AND AREA COVERED 

The 1982 Census of Agriculture was taken in accordance 
with the provisions of title 13, United States Code. Sections 
142(a) and 191 provide for a census of agriculture every 5 years 
in each State, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, and 
the Virgin Islands of the United States. The census data for the 
Virgin Islands may be collected by the Governor or a representa- 
tive from his/her staff to act as census supervisor, in accordance 
with a Memorandum of Agreement prescribed or approved by 
the Director of the Bureau of the Census. 



HISTORY 

The 1982 census is the 10th census of agriculture of the 
Virgin Islands. The first, taken in 1917, was a special census 
authorized by the Secretary of Commerce. The next agriculture 
census was taken in 1930 in conjunction with the decennial 
census, a practice that continued every 10 years through 1960. 
The 1964 Census of Agriculture was the first quinquennial IB- 
year) census to be taken in the Virgin Islands. For the quin- 
quennial census of 1969, the data were collected in 1970 in con- 
junction with the 1970 Censuses of Population and Housing. 
The 1974 census was taken independently of any other censuses. 
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 manufactu- 
ring, mining, construction, retail trade, wholesale trade, service 
industries, 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 

This information is needed by the farmers of the Virgin 
Islands, by their representatives, by the Government, and by 
many other groups of people who are concerned with food and 
agricultural production in the Virgin Islands. 

The census will provide a comprehensive inventory of farms 
and their production. A great many uses are made of this basic 
census information. 

For example: 

a. Agricultural programs can be evaluated and new programs 
started on the basis of farm statistics. 

b. Monies allocated by the Federal Government are based in 
part on census data. 

c. Businesses can determine where and how much of their 
products they can sell, and measure other features of their 
markets. 

d. Farmers can compare their current size and performance 
with the size and performance of other farms in the same 
geographic area to determine how well they are doing. 

Census figures are fundamental to making sound economic 
decisions and help increase the competition that provides better 
prices for goods and services to the farmer. 



FARM DEFINITION 

The statistics presented in this report relate to places quali- 
fying as farms for census purposes. For the 1982 Census of Agri- 
culture in the Virgin Islands, a farm was defined as a "place" of 
3 acres or more on which any field or forage crops were har- 
vested or vegetables were harvested for sale during the 12-month 
period between July 1, 1982, and June 30, 1983, or on which 
there was a combined total of 10 or more fruit or nut trees or 
plants, any livestock, or 10 or more poultry at the time of enu- 
meration. Places of less than 3 acres were counted as farms if 
their sales of agricultural products between July 1, 1982, and 
June 30, 1983, amounted to at least $100, or if they could 
normally be expected to produce agricultural products in 
sufficient quantity to provide sales amounting to at least 
$100. Places meeting any of the above criteria were included in 
the tabulations as farms. 

The definition of a farm for 1982 was the same as in all 
previous censuses, except the one for 1950. For 1950, all 
places, regardless of size, were counted as farms if the total 
value of agricultural products in 1949, except home garden 
products, whether for home use or for sales, amounted to 
$100 or more. Enumerators filled out a report form for every 
place that the operator considered a farm, every place of 3 
acres or more whether or not it was considered a farm, and 
every place of less than 3 acres whose agricultural production 
in 1949 was valued at $100 or more. 

COMPARABILITY OF DATA 

Comparability of data from the 1982 Census of Agri- 
culture in the Virgin Islands has been slightly affected by 
improvements in the coverage of the operators list and 
improved techniques of training enumerators. In general, 
data from the 1982 census are comparable with those of 
previous censuses. 

TABULAR PRESENTATION 

The detailed tables in this report give totals for each of the 
three islands— St. Croix, St. John, and St. Thomas— and for the 
Virgin Islands as a whole. Comparable information for pre- 
ceding census years is given for many items for which informa- 
tion is available.

TAKING THE CENSUS A-1 

OFFICE PROCESSING A-1 

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS A-1 

FARM CLASSIFICATIONS A-4 



TAKING THE CENSUS 
Report Form 

The report form for the 1982 Census of Agriculture was 
prepared by the Outlying Areas Branch of the Agriculture 
Division, Bureau of the Census, in cooperation with the 
Department of Agriculture of the Virgin Islands. It contained 82 
inquiries, many with several parts. The inquiries were based on 
current requirements for agricultural information and, to some 
extent, on the desire for comparability with earlier censuses. 

The only modification made to the 1982 census report form 
was the omission of the source of financmg section which was 
included in the last census (see appendix B). 

Training Program 

The project manager, crew leader, and enumerators em- 
ployed for the census in the Virgin Islands received special 
training for the job in accordance with instructions prepared by 
the Bureau of the Census. The training included practice in 
interviewing, filling out the report form, and detailed discussion 
of the enumerator's instructions. 

Method of Enumeration 

As in the previous censuses of the Virgin Islands, the direct 
enumeration procedure was used in the 1982 Census of 
Agriculture. The statistics in this report represent totals of data 
collected from farm operators during the period from July to 
the end of August 1983. For the enumeration, the Virgin Islands 
were divided into six Enumeration Districts (ED's) and each 
district was clearly delineated on special ED maps prepared for 
the census. 

Each enumerator was assigned an ED and given a map of the 
area to be enumerated. The enumerators were also given a list of 
the persons from whom a report form had been obtained in the 
1978 Census of Agriculture as well as other persons known to 
be conducting farm operations. The enumerators were required 
to check all persons on their list. 

Enumerators were also instructed to ask enough questions 
about tracts of land on which no one lived to determine 
whether agricultural data should be collected from the person in 
charge of the land. This procedure was designed to assure the 
complete coverage of all land used for agriculture, whether by 
an individual, a corporation, or an institution. 

To avoid enumeration of the same place more than once, 
rules were established whereby enumerators could determine 
who was responsible for completing a report form for a given 



place. If the person in charge of an agricultural operation lived 
outside of the ED in which the land under his/her control was 
located, the enumerator assigned to the ED in which the 
operator resided was responsible for completing his/her report 
form. If a place was partly in one ED and partly in another, the 
enumerator for the ED in which the operator lived was 
responsible for completing the report form to include all the 
land the person operated in the Virgin Islands, regardless of the 
ED. 



OFFICE PROCESSING 

The office processing was done in the Agriculture Division at 
the Bureau of the Census. Each report form was edited and 
coded prior to being data keyed. Report forms obtained for 
places not meeting the census farm definition criteria were 
voided. The remaming report forms were examined for 
accuracy, consistency, and completeness. Enumerators' errors in 
computations and in units of measures, inconsistencies, and 
misplaced entries were corrected. Missing information was 
derived and entered on incomplete reports on the basis of 
related information on the same report form or from report 
forms for nearby farms of similar type and size. 

After all the forms had been edited and coded, the data were 
encoded onto magnetic tape and subjected to a thorough 
computer edit analysis. Any inconsistencies were reviewed, 
corrected, and encoded to magnetic tape. The corrected data 
were then tabulated by the computer and printed out for 
review. 

Subject matter specialists reviewed the computer tabulations 
for reasonableness and consistency. Corrections were made on 
the basis of a reexamination of the original report forms. The 
data were then retabulated and a printout was provided so that 
the data tables could be prepared for final publication. 

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 

The following definitions and explanations relate to those 
items that are considered to be inadequately described in the 
tables. Most of the definitions are from the instructions given to 
enumerators. For an exact wording of the questions and 
instructions on the report form, see the report form in appendix 
B. 

Farm operator— The term "operator" designates a person who 
operates a farm, either by doing the work himself/herself or by 
directly supervising the work. The operator may be the owner, a 
member of the owner's household, a hired manager, or a tenant, 
renter, or sharecropper. If the operator rents land to others or 
has land worked on shares by others, he/she is considered the 
operator only of the land retained for his/her own operation. In 
the case of partnership, only one partner is counted as an 
operator. By definition, the number of operators is the same as 
the number of farms. 



AGRICULTURE-GEOGRAPHIC AREA SERIES 



APPENDIX A A-1 



Farms or operators reporting— Figures for "farms reporting" or 
"operators reporting" represent the number of farms, or 
operators reporting the specified item. The difference between 
the total number of farms and the number of farms reporting a 
particular item represents the number of farms not having that 
Item, provided a correct report was received for all farms. 

Land in farms-All data relating to land tenure and land in farms 
refer only to land located in the Virgin islands and the situation 
existing at the time of enumeration. The land included in each 
farm was determined from the answers to questions 1 through 5 
in section 2 of the report form which relate to land tenure (see 
appendix B). The acres reported as owned, rented from others, 
worked on shares for others, or managed for others were added 
together and then the acres rented to others or worked on 
shares by others were subtracted from that sum. The results 
represent "Land in farms." 

Although the area designated, land in farms, consists pri- 
marily of agricultural land— i.e., land used for crops, pasture, or 
grazing— it also includes land not actually under cultivation nor 
used for pasture or grazing. For example, woodland and 
wasteland owned or rented from others was included as land in 
farms unless reports Indicated it was being held for nonagri- 
cultural purposes, as recreational, for timber, etc. 

Land owneo'— This item includes all land that the operator or 
his/her spouse held under title, purchase contract, homestead 
law, or as heir or trustee of an undivided estate at the time of 
enumeration. 

Land rented from others— Ih'xs item includes not only land 
the operator rented or leased from others, but also land 
worked on shares for others or land occupied rent free. 

Land managed— l\\\s item includes all tracts of land managed 
for an employer by a person paid a salary or wages. A hired 
manager is the operator of the managed land, since he/she is 
responsible for the agricultural operations and frequently 
supervises others in performing those operations. If a hired 
manager also had agricultural operations of his/her own, 
he/she was asked to report it on a separate report form from 
the managed operations. 

Land rented to others— JW\% item includes all land that the 
operator rented to others and all land assigned to others on 
shares or rent free. For the most part, land rented to others 
represents agricultural land, but it also includes 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 his/her landlord may supervise the operations. 
The landlord is considered to be the operator of only that 
portion of the land not assigned to tenants. 

Land use— Land in farms at the time of enumeration is 
categorized according to the way it was used during the 
12-month period between July 1, 1982, and June 30, 1983. The 
land uses described 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. 

Harvested cropland— Ihh item refers to ail land from which 
any crop was harvested during the 12-month period, whether 
for home use or sale. It also includes land in field crops that 



were grazed when mature or almost mature, and land in 
nonbearing fruit or nut trees and plants. Land from which 
two or more crops were harvested was to be counted only 
once. Land from which crops were harvested and which was 
also used for other purposes, either before or after the crops 
were harvested, was to be reported as cropland harvested 
without regard to the other uses. 

Other cropland— This item includes cropland from which no 
crop was harvested between July 1, 1982, and June 30, 
1983, but which was occupied by growing crops, except fruit 
or nut trees, intended for harvest in 1983 or later. Also, it 
includes cropland intended for harvest, but not actually 
harvested because of complete crop failure, low prices, labor 
shortage, or other reasons; land that had been plowed and 
could be plowed again without first being cleared of brush, 
but that lay idle throughout July 1, 1982, to June 30, 1983; 
and land used for soil-improvement crops. Other cropland 
also includes land which was used only for pasture or grazing 
which the operator could have used for crops without 
additional clearing or irrigating. Enumerators were instructed 
to exclude any land pastured after a crop was harvested. 

Pasture or grazing land— This item refers to all land used for 
pasture or grazing between July 1, 1982, to June 30, 1983, 
except cropland. It includes all woodland where livestock 
pastured or grazed. 

Woodland not pastured— Th\s item includes all woodland that 
was not used for pasture or grazing between July 1, 1982, to 
June 30, 1983. In the enumerator's reference book, "wood- 
land" was defined as "all farm wood lots or timber tracts, 
natural or planted; and. . .cutover land with young growth 
which has or will have value as wood or timber." 

Other land-Th'\s item refers to all land not included in the 
other land use classifications, such as house and other 
building lots, lanes, roads, ditches, and land area of ponds 
and wasteland. 

Type of holding— Holdings are classified according to whether 
they were producing mainly for home consumption or mainly 
for sale. Those from which 50 percent or more of the 
agricultural output is consumed by the holder's household are 
classified as producing mainly for home consumption. Those 
from which 50 percent or more of the agricultural output is sold 
are classified as mainly for sale. Holdings producing mainly for 
sale are further classified according to their most important 
activity. 

Vegetable holding— Th\s is one on which 50 percent or more 
of the value of sales was from the sale of vegetables. 

Field and forage crop holding— This is one on which 50 
percent or more of the value of sales was from the sale of 
field and forage crops. 

Fruit and nut holding— This is one on which 50 percent or 
more of the value of sales was from the sale of fruits and 
nuts. 

Dairy holding— This is one on which 50 percent or more of 
the value of sales was from the sale of dairy products. 



A-2 APPENDIX A 



AGRICULTURE-GEOGRAPHIC AREA SERIES 



Livestock holding— J\\\s is one on which 50 percent or more 
of the value of sales was from the sale of livestock and 
livestock products, except dairy products. 

Poultry holding— Th\s is one on which 50 percent or more of 
the value of sales was from the sale of poultry and poultry 
products. 

Nursery holding— This is one on which 50 percent or more of 
the value of sales was from the sale of nursery products. 

Mixed holding— This is one on which none of the above items 
accounts for 50 percent or more of the value of sales. 

Other holding— This is one that does not belong to any of the 
previous groups. 

Crops harvested— The 1982 report form was similar to the 
report forms used in previous censuses. It provided for the 
collection of data for specified field crops, vegetables, fruits, 
and nuts harvested on each farm. Inquiries were included for the 
most commonly grown crops in the Virgin Islands and space was 
provided to write in those less frequently produced. 

The units of measure for reporting quantities of some crops 
have varied from one census to another. The aim has been to 
permit reporting in the units of measure currently in use. In this 
report, the quantities harvested for each crop are expressed in 
the units of measure given on the 1982 report form. To provide 
readily comparable information, data published in earlier 
reports in different units of measure have been converted to the 
units used for the 1982 census. 

Forage, field, and vegetable crops— The area for individual 
crops harvested was obtained for forage, field, and vegetable 
crops in acres and lOths of acres. When two or more crops, 
or two or more plantings of the same crop, were harvested 
from the same land, the area was to be reported for each 
separate crop or planting. Total quantities of each forage and 
field crop harvested were to be reported, whether the crops 
were for home use or for sale. Also, total quantities of each 
crop sold were to be reported. The acreage reported for 
vegetables relates only to the acreage harvested. 

Fruits and nuts— The figures for acres and for number of 
trees and plants relate to t^e time of enumeration. 

Value of products sold— Data for value of products sold were 
obtained for each type of crop, fruit, livestock, etc., sold from 
the farm. The gross value of quantities sold was to be reported 
regardless of who did the selling or shared in the receipts. Crops 
given to a landlord and crops produced on institutional farms 
for use by inmates of the institution were to be considered as 
sold. 

Livestock and poultry— Inventory data for livestock and poultry 
relate to the number on hand at the time of enumeration. All 
livestock and poultry were to be enumerated on the place where 
they were at the time of enumeration regardless of who owned 
them. Livestock on unfenced land were to be reported as being 
on the place identified as the headquarters of the person who 
had control over them. 

Sales data for livestock, milk, and poultry products relate to 
the 12-month period between July 1, 1982, and June 30, 1983. 



Enumerators were instructed to report total quantities and gross 
value of sales regardless of who did the selling or shared in the 
receipts. Products given by a tenant to a landlord and products 
taken from an institutional farm for use by inmates of the 
institutional farm were to be considered as sold. 

Selected farm expenses— The 1982 report form contained 
questions on six types of farm expenses incurred between July 
1, 1982, and June 30, 1983, whether made by the farm 
operator, his/her landlord, or both. A farm operator who rented 
part of his/her land to others reported only the expenses on the 
land he/she operated. 

Machine hire and customwork— Expenses for machine hire 
and customwork relate to tractor hire, plowing, and spraying. 
Any amount spent for the labor involved is considered to be 
part of the expense. The costs of hauling, trucking, or of ex- 
change work without pay are omitted. 

Hired farm labor— Expenses for hired farm labor include total 
cash payments made between July 1, 1982, and June 30, 
1983, to family members and others for farm labor. 
Payments to persons supplied by a contractor or a coopera- 
tive organization and paid directly by them or by the crew 
leader are also included. Payments are excluded for house- 
work, contract construction work, customwork, and repair 
and installation work performed by persons specifically 
employed for the work. 

Purchases of feed— Expenses for feed for livestock and 
poultry include total cash payments made between July 1, 

1982, to June 30, 1983, for pasture used, salt, concentrates, 
mineral supplements, grain, hay, millfeeds, and any other 
items purchased for feeding livestock and poultry on the 
place. Expenses made for the grinding and mixing of feed 
and the estimated cost of items furnished to the operator by 
a landlord or others are also included. Payments made by a 
tenant to a landlord for feed grown on the tenant's farm are 
excluded. 

Purchases of insecticides, fungicides, and herbicides— This 
item relates to total cash expenses between July 1, 1982, and 
June 30, 1983, for all chemicals, sprays, dusts, etc., used to 
control weeds, pests, insects, or disease on crops and 
livestock. Any of these materials paid for by landlords and 
custom operators is included in the expense data. 

Purchases of fertilizers and manure— These expenses include 
the total amount spent between July 1, 1982, and June 30, 

1983, for manure and commercial fertilizers of all kinds for 
use on the farm. 

Purchases of livestock and poultry— Th\s item includes all 
cash expenses for livestock and poultry purchased between 
July 1, 1982, to June 30, 1983, for the place. The cost of 
livestock and poultry bought and then resold within 30 days 
is not included. 

Equipment and facilities— Operators were asked to report the 
number of tractors, motortrucks, and automobiles on their farms 
at the time of enumeration, regardless of ownership. Items that 
were temporarily out of order were to be included, but not 
those that were worn out. Tractors include all wheel and 



AGRICULTURE-GEOGRAPHIC AREA SERIES 



APPENDIX A A-3 



tracklaying (crawlers), garden, and homemade. Motortrucks 
include pickup trucks, truck-trailer combinations, jeeps, and 
station wagons if they were used primarily as trucks. Auto- 
mobiles include jeeps and station wagons if they were used 
primarily as passenger cars. Data obtained in the 1982 census 
for the number of tractors, motortrucks, and automobiles on 
farms are comparable with those presented for earlier census 
years. 

Since the 1960 census, data were obtained on presence or 
absence of electricity and piped running water on the farm. 
These facilities were considered to be on the farm if they were 
available anywhere on the place, whether or not in the operator's 
dwelling. "Piped running water" was defined as "water carried 
in pipelines by a pressure system or by gravity flow from a 
natural or an artificial source." 

Farm wells included all holes or pits made by excavation to 
reach a supply of water for irrigation, watering livestock, and 
other purposes. Farm ponds are not included. 



number of days worked off the farm during the year. Work 
off the farm was defined to include work on someone else's 
farm for pay as well as all types of nonfarm jobs, businesses, 
and professions whether the work was done on the farm 
premises or elsewhere. Exchange work was not included. 
Data for the 1982 census are comparable with those for the 
censuses since 1960. 

FARM CLASSIFICATIONS 

Farms by size— Farms were classified by size on the basis of the 
total land area established in each one. 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 the entire landholding to be 
one unit rather than several separate units. 



Operator cliaracteristlcs— Data were obtained to classify the 
operators according to six characteristics. 

Residence of operator- Operators were classified by resi- 
dence according to whether or not they lived on the farms 
operated. Some of those who did not live on the farms they 
operated lived on farms operated by others. Where all the 
land was rented from others or worked on shares for others, 
the operator was considered to live on the farm operated 
provided the dwelling he/she occupied was included in the 
rental agreement. In such cases, the dwelling was not 
necessarily on the land being operated. Similarly, an operator 
who did not live on the land being cultivated or grazed, but 
who had some agricultural operations (other than a home 
garden) at his/her dwelling, was considered to be living on 
the farm operated. 

Years on present farm— Operators were classified by years on 
present farm into four groups. This data was based on the 
request for the first year the operator took continuous 
charge of the present farm or any part of it. 

Place of birtfi-Operators were classified by place of birth 
according to whether they were born in the Virgin Islands, 
Puerto Rico, or elsewhere. The purpose of this question was 
to obtain a measure of the native language abilities of 
operators as a guide to agricultural agents in preparing news 
releases for distribution to farmers. The need for information 
about language abilities has arisen since the 1950 census as a 
result of the influx of Puerto Ricans into the Virgin Islands. 

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 reporting by the number reporting. 

Main occupation— This question was asked to determine 
whether the principal occupation of the operator was 
agricultural or nonagricultural. If the operator devoted 50 
percent or more of his/her work time to agricultural 
activities, his/her main occupation was considered to be 
agriculture. 

Work off farm— The extent to which operators rely on 
nonfarm sources for part of their income is indicated by the 



Farms by tenure of operator— In the 1982 census, farms were 
classified by tenure of operator on the basis of data reported for 
land owned, rented from others, worked on shares for others, 
and managed for others. The same classification was used since 
1964. During the processing operations, each report form was 
coded to indicate whether the operator was a full owner, part 
owner, manager, or tenant. 

Ft/// owners— These operate only land they own. 

Part owners— These operate land they own and also land they 
rent from others. 

Managers— These operate land for others and are paid a wage 
or salary for their services. Caretakers or hired laborers are 
not classified as managers. If an operator managed land for 
others and also operated his/her own farm, each operation 
was considered a farm. If a manager managed farms for two 
or more employers, each operation was considered a separate 
farm. 

Tenants— These rent from others or work the land they 
operate on shares for others. 

Farms by value of agricultural products sold— The 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 livestock, milk, 
poultry and eggs, vegetables, fruits and nuts, all field crops, 
ornamental plants, and all other crops was obtained from the 
operator at the time of enumeration. The computer edit 
classified the value of agricultural products sold into one of the 
following groups: 



Less than $100 
$100 to $499 
$500 to $1,199 
$1,200 to $2,499 



$2,500 to $4,999 
$5,000 to $7,499 
$7,500 to $9,999 
$10,000 or more 



Farms by age of operator— Enumerators entered the operator's 
age, as of his/her last birthday, on the report form. The 
computer edit classified the operator's age into one of the 
following age groups: 



Under 25 years 
25 to 34 years 
35 to 44 years 



45 to 54 years 
55 to 64 years 
65 years and over
