United States Government printing office, 1948

Agricultural Statistics brings together each year the mare important series of statistics compiled in the Department of Agriculture or in other departments whose work concerns agriculture. Although far more information is available than can be included in a single volume, the tables selected give a wide variety of-facts in forms suited to most coRIIIOil uses. Inquiries concerning more detailed data or the statistical methodology used should be addressed directly to the agencies to whom tables in this volume are credited. These agencies can also answer questions about past and prospective revisions in published data.

Historical series have again been generally limited to data beginning with 1929 or 19~0, or to the most recent 10 years. Agricultural Statistics for 1942 is still the most complete reference for earlier data.

The Table of Contents indicates the general lay-out of the book, and page headings indicate the sub-divisions within each chapter. Short introductions at the beginning of each chapter are mostly new this year. These introductions explain the main.-effects of the 1945 Census on previously-published statistics, and describe some of' the new material included this year.
