The 2017 Census of Agriculture which was sent out to hundreds of Colorado ag producers will be released in full in just days.

Data geeks will be pleased to know the National Agricultural Statistics Services's report will be released on April 11th.

Amanda Dawson at NASS says :

The report will be released at 12 noon and it will be available in several different media formats such as text and pdf. The full report is a comprehensive summary of agricultural data from the United States and from each state.

Some of the data include number of farms by size and type, inventory and values for crop and livestock.

There will also be tools to help the rest of us make sense of the data which include millions of data points from farms and ranches across the country.

Data users will have access to a plethora of census products including full reports, maps, highlights, rankings, quick stats and also queries.

The Census of Agriculture report will be found at the website nass.usda.gov.

The 2017 Census of Agriculture was compiled with a 71.5 percent national response rate. The Census, conducted once every five years, was mailed to more than 3 million known and potential farms and ranches across the United States late last year. Data collection ended this July. Puerto Rico and other U.S. territories will receive their Census of Agriculture questionnaires in January 2019.
