In the current preliminary estimate relative to the final end of

The "Root Mean Square Error" for the February 1, 1983 potato stocks estimate is 3.0 percent.
This means that chances are 2 out of 3 that the current estimate of 145 million hundredweight
will not be above or below the final estimate by more than 3.0 percent or approximately 4.35
