Issued Oct. 30, 2009 by the Agricultural Statistics Board of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Agricultural Statistics Service. For more information contact Virginia Harris at (502) 582-5293

The National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) today released county-level demographic profiles of U.S. farm and ranch operators. These profiles summarize data from the 2007 Census of Agriculture.

Up to seven profiles have been prepared for each county in the United States. Data are available for the following groups: Women Principal Operators, Spanish, Hispanic, or Latino Operators, American Indian or Alaska Native Operators, Asian Operators, Black or African American Operators, Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander Operators, and White Operators. In addition to race, ethnicity and gender information, the profiles include county-level counts of farms and farm operators, as well as economic data such as total value of sales and government payments.

County-level profiles of all farms and ranches have been produced for 2007 and earlier censuses, but this marks the first time the profiles summarize information by race, ethnicity and gender. To access the profiles and for more information about the Census, visit
