How th Bureau of Statistics Doss tin
The bureau of statistics Issues each
month detailed reports relating to ag
ricultural conditions throughout the
United States, the data upon which
they arc based being obtained tbrougk
a special field service, a corps of statt
statistical agents and a large body of
voluntary correspondents composed 01
the following classes: County corns
spondenti, township correspondents.
Individual farmers and special cotton
The special field service consists ol
seventeen traveling agents, each as
signed to report for a separate group
of states. These agents are especially
qualified by statistical training and
practical knowledge of crops. They
systematically travel over the district
assigned to them, carefully note the
development of each crop, keep to
touch with best Informed opinion and
render written and telegraphic reports
monthly and at such other times as
There are forty-five state statistical
agents, each located In n different
state. Each reports for his state as a
whole and maintains a corps of corre
spondents entirely Independent of
those reporting directly to the depart
ment at Washington. These state sta
tistical correspondents report each
month directly to the state agent on
schedules furnished him. The rejrts
are then tabulated and, weighted ac
cording to the relative product or area
of the given crop in each county rep
resented and are summarized by the
state agent, who co-ordinates and an
alyzes them in the light of his person
al knowledge and conditions and from
them prepares his reports to the de
partment There are approximately 2.800 coun
ties of agricultural Importance In the
United States. In each the depart
ment has a principal county corre
spondent, who maintains an organisa
tion of several assistants. Theso coun
ty correspondents arc selected with
special reference to their qualifications
and constitute an efficient branch of
the crop reporting service. They make
the county the geographical unlt of
their reports and after obtaining data
each month from their assistants and
supplementing these with information
obtained from their own observation
and knowledge report directly to the
department at Washington.
In the townships and voting pre
cincts of the United States in which
farming operations are extensively
carried on the department has town
ship correspondents, who make the
township or precinct the geographical
basis of reports, which they also send
directly to the department each month.
Finally at the end of the growing
season a large number of Individual
farmers and planters report on the re
sults of their own Individual farming
operations during the year.
With regard to cotton, all the Infor
mation from the foregoing sources Is
supplemented by that furnished by
special cotton correspondents, embrac
ing a large number of persons Inti
mately concerned In the cotton Indus
try, and In addition inquiries In rela
tion to acreage and yield per acre of
cotton are addressed to the bureau of
the census list of cotton glnners through
the courtesy of that bureau.
