Agricultural trade multipliers provide estimates of employment and/or output effects of trade in farm and food products on the U.S. economy. These effects, when expressed as multipliers, reflect the amount of economic activity and/or jobs generated by agricultural exports.
Users of this data system have two options through which to display multipliers:
- Predefined ERS estimates for the most recent calendar year available or
- Estimates generated by an interactive calculator that enables users to select their own basket of exports from the list of predefined estimates and/or apply a new set of trade margins to the commodity or basket of goods.
NOTE: The Agricultural Trade Multipliers Calculator is temporarily unavailable. We are working to address technical difficulties and will restore it as soon as possible.
