NASS Announces Layout Change to ASB Reports
Issued Aug. 21, 2009 by the Agricultural Statistics Board of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Agricultural Statistics Service. For more information contact Rich Holcomb at (202) 720-3400 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
To improve readability of its data products, the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) is modifying the layout of Agricultural Statistics Board (ASB) reports. The majority of layout changes are aesthetic, however several changes will impact the structure of tabular data.
Over the next two years, each ASB report will be converted to the new layout. To assist data users with the transition, before a report series is converted exclusively to the new format, it will be published concurrently in both the old and new format. Additionally, each report will contain a notice announcing that all subsequent issues will be released using the new layout.
All ASB reports are available online at www.nass.usda.gov.
