Statistical Methodology

Survey Procedures: Crop progress and condition estimates are based on survey
data collected each week from early April through the end of November. The
non-probability crop progress and condition surveys include input from
approximately 3,600 respondents whose occupations provide them opportunities
to make visual observations and frequently bring them in contact with farmers
in their counties. Based on standard definitions, these respondents
subjectively estimate the progress of crops through various stages of
development, as well as the progress of producer activities. They also
provide subjective evaluations of crop conditions.

Most respondents complete their questionnaires on Friday or early Monday
morning and submit them to the National Agricultural Statistics Service
(NASS) Field Offices in their States by mail, telephone, fax, e-mail, or
through a secured internet website. A small number of reports are completed
on Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. Regardless of when questionnaires are
completed, respondents are asked to report for the entire week ending on
Sunday. For reports submitted prior to the Sunday reference date, a degree of
uncertainty is introduced by projections for weekend changes in progress and
condition. By the end of the 2016 season, over 95 percent of the data were
being submitted through the internet website. As a result, the majority of
all data are submitted on Monday morning, significantly reducing projection
uncertainty.

Respondents are sent written reporting instructions at the beginning of each
season and are contacted periodically to ensure proper reporting. Terms and
definitions of crop stages and condition categories used as reporting
guidelines are available on the NASS website at
www.nass.usda.gov/Publications/National_Crop_Progress.

Estimating Procedures: Reported data are reviewed for reasonableness and
consistency by comparing with data reported the previous week and data
reported in surrounding counties for the current week. Field Offices
summarize the reported data to district and State levels, weighting each
county’s reported data by NASS county acreage estimates. Summarized
indications are compared with previous week estimates, and progress items are
compared with earlier stages of development and historical averages to ensure
reasonableness. Weather events and respondent comments are also taken into
consideration. State estimates are submitted to the Agricultural Statistics
Board (ASB) along with supporting comments, where they are compared with
surrounding States and compiled into a National level summary by weighting
each State by its acreage estimates. National crop planting progress,
progress of development stages, and condition estimates are weighted using
the program State’s average planted acres over the previous three crop years.
National crop harvest progress estimates are weighted using the program
State’s average harvested acres over the previous three crop years. Pasture
and range condition is weighted using pasture acreage and/or livestock
inventories from the most recent Census of Agriculture. Days suitable for
fieldwork, topsoil moisture and subsoil moisture are weighted using cropland
acreage from the Census of Agriculture.

Revision Policy: Progress and condition estimates in the Crop Progress report
are released after 4:00 pm ET on the first business day of the week. These
estimates are subject to revision the following week.
