Take the Survey

We are asking for your feedback on the Local Farms and Food Profile. Please click this link to go to the survey/
While we are on the topic of the USDA Ag Census, we hope you will help promote the 2022 USDA Ag Census to your colleagues, firences, and farmers. Initial notices were recently sent out to farmers. Farmers who did not receive an invitation to complete the survey can click on this link to request a survey code.
The Census of Agriculture is a complete count of U.S. farms and ranches and the people who operate them. Even small plots of land – whether rural or urban – count if $1,000 or more of agricultural products were produced and sold, or normally would have been sold, during the census year.

Census of Agriculture data are used by those who serve farmers and rural communities — federal, state and local governments, agribusinesses, researchers, trade associations, and many others.

  • Ag producers can use Census of Agriculture data to make informed decisions about their own operations, from production practices to marketing.
  • Companies and cooperatives use the data to determine where to locate facilities that will serve agricultural producers.
  • Community planners use the information to target needed services to rural residents.
  • Legislators use census data when shaping farm policies and programs.
  • Students, educators, and researchers use the data as part of their ongoing studies, education, and research initiatives

Responses are due by February 6, 2023. NASS will send reminder notices to those who do not respond and may attempt to contact those producers for a personal interview. Response to the Census of Agriculture is required by federal law.

NASS is bound by law (Title 7, U.S. Code, and the Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act of 2018, Title III of Pub. L. No. 115-435, codified in 44 U.S.C. Ch. 35) – and pledges to every data provider – to use the information for statistical purposes only, and to only publish aggregated data so that no individual or farm can be identified.
