Revised Estiates


This publication presents a series of annual estimates of number of
farms by States for the period 1910-56. Estimates for 1910-52 have been
used within the Department for some time; those for 1951-56 are on a
revised Census level. These data now constitute the official Department
of Agriculture series on number of fTas. National and geographic division
estimates are the sums for individual States.


DESCRIPTION OF SERIES AND ESTIMATING PROCEDURES


The Agricultural Estimates Division prepares annual estimates of the
number of farms for use in its regular work. These estimates are based
mainly on indications of change shown by its larger acreage and livestock
surveys, by annual assessors' censuses in a number of States, by land
assessment records in certain States, by ASC data, and other miscellaneous
sources of check data.

This series of annual estimates of number of farms has been revised
following the Census of Agriculture taken every 5 years. Data available
to indicate the completeness of the Census of Agriculture vary State by
State, but, with few exceptions, a larger number of farms has been adopted
than enumerated by the Census in order to allow for some incompleteness.
This incompleteness has long been recognized by the Census Bureau and other
agencies.

In evaluating the census data prior to 1950, the practice was to accept
the census number of farms as a minimum and adopt varying degrees of incom-
pleteness as indicated by check data on a State, and in many instances, a
county evaluation basis. The Bureau of the Census, as a part of the 1950
and 1954 Censuses of Agriculture, undertook detailed special surveys to
give estimates of the completeness of coverage and to provide measures for
determining sampling errors for a few important items on a regional and
national basis. In making revisions in its series for 1950 and 1954,
Agricultural Estimates relied heavily upon the Census Bureau quality check
information. The official estimate of total number of farms for the United
States for 1954 was set at the level indicated by the results of the Census
quality check in consultation with representatives of the Bureau of the Census


and the Division of Statistical Standards, Bureau of the Budget.
were then prepared which added to this total taking into account
indications for each State.


State estimates
the various


trends for intercensal years are established from a wide variety of infor-
mation as indicated heretofore. State Statisticians have these local data
available when they attack the problem of estimating changes in number of
farms. Estimates prepared by the individual State Statisticians are submitted
to Washington for review by representatives of the Crop Reporting Board. Trends
are considered by geographic regions and a careful appraisal is made on a State-
by-State basis. An attempt is made to conform to the general economic trend and
to generally accepted situations within States.






farm between the earlier and the more recent censuses are not taken up here.
Detailed descriptions are given in introductory volumes of each Census of
Agriculture.


Census benchmark data are collected as of different dates, hence
has been sdoe question as to which dates are applicable to this series
estimates. Actually, it is believed that the date of enumeration has
effect on the number of farms. For all practical purposes, then, the
represents the number of farms in operation for the year shown.
