Agriculture is focus for new issue of the "Kentucky: By The Numbers Data Series"

Every 5 years, the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) conducts the Census of Agriculture.  

 

The "2012 Agriculture" issue of the Kentucky: By The Numbers Data Series provides access to county level data on agriculture and farmers in Kentucky.

 

A special issue of the "Kentucky: By The Numbers Data Series" was created to help in honoring the 100th anniversary of the Smith-Lever Act which established the Cooperative Extension Service.

 

Each issue contains county population data that spans the 100 years from 1910-2010 as well as the most recent 2013 population estimate.

 

In addition to the data, to help in 'seeing' the long term trends, each issue contains a line graph of that county's data, the state, and the county's Extension District.

 

To access the issue for your county, click here.
