Census of Agriculture Data Available by ZIP Code
Issued August 3, 2009 by the Agricultural Statistics Board of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Agricultural Statistics Service. For information, contact Chris Messer at (202) 690-8747.
The National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) expanded the amount of information available from the 2007 Census of Agriculture by providing select data at the ZIP code level. The ZIP code-level data can be accessed online through NASSís Census statistics database, Quick Stats.
To conduct the 2007 Census of Agriculture, NASS mailed a Census form to all known and potential farm operators in the United States. In most cases, producersí mailing addresses were the same as the location of their operation. Therefore, the vast majority of farms were tabulated in the ZIP codes where they are located. However, in some instances, the operator's farm was located outside the mailed ZIP code. Consequently, these farms are not counted in the ZIP codes of their physical location.
The information published is limited to farm counts for select items only and ZIP codes with no reported farms in the 2007 Census are not included. For more information about the Census or to access the QuickStats application, visit www.agcensus.usda.gov.
