The Census of Agriculture is the leading source of facts and figures about American agriculture. Conducted every five years, the Census provides a detailed picture of U.S. farms and ranches and the people who operate them. It is the only source of uniform, comprehensive agricultural data for every state and county in the United States. This information is used by everyone who provides services to farmers and rural communities – including federal, state and local governments, agribusinesses, and many others.
