  Web Accessibility

The National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), along with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), is committed to making electronic and informational technologies accessible to individuals of all abilities. Our goal is to meet or exceed the requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (29 U.S.C 794d), as amended in 1998. Section 508 requires agencies to provide individuals with disabilities equal access to electronic information and data comparable to those who do not have disabilities, unless it poses an undue burden on the agency. For more information about the law, see


Accessibility Resources

Our website contains HTML documents, plain text files, Adobe Acrobat PDFs, and Microsoft Word and PowerPoint files, among others. Our goal is to make sure you have resources to access all NASS web pages and content.

  • HTML and plain text formats are generally accessible if you use a screen reader.
  • To read PDF (Portable Document Format) documents on your screen reader, please visit Adobe Access (, where you can obtain both Acrobat Reader and the necessary accessibility plug-in free of charge.
  • Most versions of Microsoft Word or PowerPoint will allow you to view documents. But if you do not have the software, please visit the Microsoft Download Center, where you can download a free PowerPoint file viewer and Word file viewer.

You can also obtain assistance from the USDA Target Center, which converts USDA information and documents into alternative format, including Braille, large print, video description, diskette, and audiotape. For information, visit the TARGET Center website at or call (202)720-2600 (Voice TTY).
