USDA estimates of net farm income and financial statistics are developed by ERS from NASS data sources. NASS data sources are both published and confidential, and ERS maintains the confidentiality of those sources. The published NASS data records which are the beginning of the ERS income and value added estimation methodology are discussed in more detail in the Documentation of the Farm Income and Wealth Statistics data product.
