NASS to Consider Changing County Estimates
Sometimes this results in the suppression of county level estimates that would otherwise qualify for publication. Without the need for ASD level publication, any other county within the state could be used to provide the complementary coverage, ultimately leading to more counties published within each state. This change would align the publishing approach for the Census of Agriculture and the annual county estimates programs.
Although there are clear benefits to removing the ASD level estimates, NASS said it realizes that it may not be aware of specific uses that may exist.
