ERS: A Great Source for Statistical Info

Structure and Finances of U.S. Farms: Family Farm Report, 2010 Edition was announced in an email that came recently. It’s just one of the publications of the USDA’s Economic Research Service, Their Website says that, “the Economic Research Service is a primary source of economic information and research in the U.S. Department of Agriculture…. ERS conducts a research program to inform public and private decisionmaking on economic and policy issues involving food, farming, natural resources, and rural development.” Their statistics and reports could provide really good information to use in grants applications, library planning, and in reference. You can follow them on Twitter, subscribe to RSS, or get email updates to hear about new studies.
