Data Set Revision

The Agricultural Exchange Rate Data Set was revised in June 2008. The revision involved two major components. First, the commodity categories for U.S. Suppliers was modified and expanded to better reflect the composition of U.S. agricultural imports. Second, the weights were revised from a 1998-2000 base to a 2003-05 base. The composition of trade has changed over time, as have the major importing and exporting countries. For example, the relative importance of Canada and Mexico to U.S. trade has increased, while that of Europe has decreased.

Related Data

The Agricultural Baseline Database provides long-run, 10-year projections found in USDA's annual Baseline report. The database covers projections for major field crops (corn, sorghum, barley, oats, wheat, rice, soybeans, and upland cotton), and livestock (beef, pork, poultry and eggs, and dairy).

The ERS International Macroeconomic Data Set contains international data on real gross domestic product, population, real exchange rates on a 2005 base, and other variables. Also contains historical data and projections.
