Data Training Webinar: Agricultural Trade Multipliers
Date: Wednesday, March 30, 2022
Time: 1:00 PM ET
Duration: 1 hour
Speaker: Wendy Zeng
Did you know the U.S. exported a record $150.1 billion in agricultural goods in 2020? These exports generated a total of $304.4 billion of income in the U.S. economy and supported a total of 1.13 million jobs.
USDA's Economic Research Service's Agricultural Trade Multipliers provide annual estimates of employment and output effects of trade in farm and food products on the U.S. economy. When expressed as multipliers, these effects reflect the amount of economic activity and jobs generated by agricultural exports. In this webinar, ERS Economist Wendy Zeng will presented highlights and potential takeaways from the ATM data product, provided an overview of what ATM is used for, and walk participants through how to use the online calculator.
