Overview

This data set provides estimates of productivity growth in the U.S. farm sector for 1948-2013, and estimates of the growth and relative levels of productivity across U.S. States for 1960-2004.

Note that the national data series has been revised (see Findings, Documentation, and Methods for details), and updates of the State-level statistics are suspended in light of reduced ERS resources and the discontinuance of key source data series. The quality of the national statistics is preserved.

Errata: On May 9, 2016, the data file for Table 23. Price indices and implicit quantities of farm outputs and inputs by State, 1960-2004 was reposted to remove a duplication of data. A previous version of this file listed the headings “capital services” and “capital services excluding land” with identical data provided for each. “Capital services excluding land” is the correct heading and those data remain and are correct. The duplicate “capital services” heading and data have been removed.
