Every five years, USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) conducts a program review following the completion of the Census of Agriculture. The review considers the latest information from the ag census, current annual estimates, and administrative data to ensure that the NASS annual estimating programs adapt to reflect changes in agriculture. NASS also considers public input requested through a program review announcement released on Dec. 19, 2023.

Program changes can take the form of additions, deletions, or adjustments. Based on the latest review, several changes have been made.


NASS is the federal statistical agency responsible for producing official data about U.S. agriculture and is committed to providing timely, accurate and useful statistics in service to U.S. agriculture.
