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 Update and Revision History 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.
