Description:
Abstract: This data set portrays the National Agricultural Statistics Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture's 1997 Census data for the United States, presented by county. There are 25 categories of data which include information about farms, crops, livestock, values of products, and farm operator characteristics.
Purpose: These data are intended for geographic display and analysis at the national level, and for large regional areas. The data should be displayed and analyzed at scales appropriate for 1:2,000,000-scale data. No responsibility is assumed by the U.S. Geological Survey in the use of these data.

Process_Description: The were several edits to ATLAS-1990CNTY which is a data set containing 1990 county boundaries for the United States. From the AG-CENSUS the following database files were extracted: 010001 Farms(numbers) 010015 Total cropland (acres) 010017 Total cropland, harvested cropland (acres) 010021 Market value of agricultural products sold, average per farm (dollars) 010022 Market value of agricultural products sold-crops, including nursery and greenhouse crops ($1,000) 010023 Market value of agricultural products sold - livestock, poultry, and their products ($1,000) 010024 Farms by value of sales: Less than $2,500 010025 Farms by value of sales: $2,500 to $4,999 010031 Total farm production expenses ($1,000) 010057 Broilers and other meat-type chickens sold (number) 010059 Corn for grain or seed (acres) 010068 Wheat for grain (acres) 010083 Cotton (acres) 010089 Soybeans for beans (acres) 010113 Vegetables harvested for sale (acres) 010115 Land in orchards (acres) 080009 Irrigated land (acres) 090024 Selected machinery/equip-wheel tractors,100 horsepower (PTO) or more (number) 110049 Operators by sex: Female (farms) 110051 Individual or family (sole proprietorship) (farms) 140002 Cattle and calves inventory (number) 150002 Hogs and pigs (number) 310344 Pecans (in shell), total (acres) 330044 Nursery crops, sales ($1,000) 350001 Black and other races, land in farms (farms) In the databases files, the field names were edited to include the table number, the text number fields were changed to numeric number fields, and fields flagged with D (data withheld to avoid disclosing information for individual farms) were changed from 0 to -9999. The individual database files were converted to dBASE IV files and combined into a single database file. This file was converted to an INFO table which was then joined to the edited ATLAS-1990CNTY coverage, and the result is this data set.
