Farm Income and Wealth Statistics

U.S. and State-Level Farm Income and Wealth Statistics (Includes the U.S. Farm Income Forecast for 2014)

Note: The detailed historical estimates of U.S. and State-Level Farm Income and Wealth Statistics are temporarily unavailable while coding problems with the underlying database are being corrected.

Errata: On November 26, 2014, the ERS farm income estimates for 2008-2013, released on November 25, were revised to correct coding problems in the underlying farm income database. At the U.S. level, these corrections increased 2013 net farm income by 3 percent, to $126.5 billion. Other measures affected include total value of production, gross and net value added, the value of inventory change, and their respective crop components.

These are the latest data concerning the farm income forecast, including the forecasts for the income statement for the U.S. farm sector, value added, cash receipts and value of production, government payments, farm production expenses, and the balance sheet. Included are historical U.S. and State-level farm income and wealth statistics. Historical/State data cover the topics of net value added and net farm income, net cash income, cash receipts and value of production, government payments, farm production expenses, and the balance sheet.

Data are added once a year and revised up to three times a year, in February, August and November. The August release converts the prior year's farm income and balance sheet forecasts to estimates and adds State-level farm income estimates.

Note that State and U.S. revisions for 2012 and final estimates for 2013 were included in the farm income estimates in November instead of in August due to the change in timing of specific National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) data releases and the 2012 Census of Agriculture.

The data below are as of November 25, 2014. The next potential revision will be February 10, 2015. These tables cover the full history of data through 2014F, where available.
