The well-being of farm operator households is not equivalent to the financial performance of the farm sector or of farm businesses because there are other stakeholders in farming, such as landlords and contractors, and because farm operator households often have nonfarm investments, jobs, and other links to the nonfarm economy. ERS uses several classifications of farm operator households (farm type, gross sales, and commodity specialization) when reporting indicators of economic well-being, which include:

  • Income
  • Wealth
  • Access to health care
