year, the employees of USDA's National Agricultural Statistics
Service (NASS) conduct hundreds of surveys and prepare reports
covering virtually every facet of U.S. agriculture -- production
and supplies of food and fiber, prices paid and received by
farmers, farm labor and wages, farm aspects of the industry.
In addition, NASS's State Offices publish data about
many of the same topics for local audiences.
The New York Field Office provides a link between USDA, NASS,
and New York. Our mission is to provide timely, accurate
and useful statistics in service to New York and US Agriculture.
