Current Survey Activities

Major NASDA Survey Activities
    • February Surveys: Data collection continues with Irrigation and Water Management, Commercial Floriculture, Cash Rents, Census of Aquaculture, and Land Values. We are also preparing for the Agricultural Resource Management (ARMS) Phase III Survey for 2023 which is a cooperative effort of the National Agricultural Statistics Service and the Economic Research Service. We will be gathering data on whole farm finances and operator characteristics. The results provide the agriculture industry with a picture of farm income and expenditures and help contribute to research for improved production, marketing and profitability of United States agricultural commodities.
    • March Surveys: TheQuarterly Agricultural Survey begins March 1. This survey collects planting intentions data for the 2024 crop year. Also during March are the Quarterly Hog Report and Off Farm Grain Stocks Report. Additionally, the Prices Paid Survey provides reliable estimates of the change over time in average costs of inputs purchased by farmers and ranchers to produce agricultural commodities. ARMS Phase III, Cash Rents, Hemp, and Commercial Floriculture data collection will continue.
