The National Agricultural Statistics Service has made data from the 2007 Census of Agriculture available online by congressional district.
"The new congressional district profiles provide a snapshot of agriculture at a local level," said NASS Deputy Administrator Carol House. "This information will help elected officials make decisions based on current and accurate information and they are a useful tool for farmers and others interested in American agriculture at the local level."
The congressional district profiles show changes in key areas since the 2002 census. Data on things like the number of farms and acres in farmland, the demographics of local farmers, livestock inventory, crop production and total sales of agricultural products is included.
"Once again, we would like to thank our nation’s farmers for doing their part in providing this useful information," said House. "Together, we’re offering a true picture of American agriculture and providing the resources needed to ensure its sustainability and growth."
