Agricultural statistics of the USA 1952

United States Government printing office, 1952

Agricultural Statistics brings together the more important series of statistics concerning agriculture and closely related subjects. For the most part, the data included herein were prepared in the U. S. Department of Agriculture, or compiled by the staff for official use. A few of the tables were prepared in other .Gover~1ment agencies. A particular effort h~s been made to meet the d1verse mterests and needs of the general pubhc for a reliable reference book on agricultural production, supplies, consumption, facilities, costs; and returns. The tables presented cover a wide variety of facts in forms suited to most common uses. Persons needing daily, weekly, and monthly information are served by the current reports of the agencies which prepare the summa.ry statistics that appear in this book and to which the tables are credited. Research workers will usually wish to obtain direct from the agencies the latest facts bearing on particular problems associated with data contained in these published tables. Inquiries concerning more current or more detailed data, the statistical methodology used, past and prospective revisions, etc., should be addressed direct to the agency responsible for the table.
The historical series in this volume have been expanded in order to provide a more complete reference than other recent editions. The volume for 1942 was the most complete prior issue from a historical standpoint.

vVith the longer series carried here there should be few occasions for the user to refer back to earlier issues. Historical tables for the principal crops showing totals for the United States begin with 1866 and for January 1 livestock numbers with 1867. Most other basic tables showing national totals, begin with 1909, 1919, 1929, and 1939 (livestock and poultry items 1 year later) depending in part on the relative need for a long series.
