Banks, Vera J.; And Others
Prepared under the direction of the Statistical Review Board, which is composed of members representing agencies of the Department of Agriculture, this handbook provides agricultural statistical information and revisions since Agriculture Handbook No. 118 was issued. Chapter 1 describes information published in "Farm Population Estimates," which contains estimates of persons living on farms and the components of farm population change, and "Current Population Reports," which presents current estimates by age, sex, color, and labor force status. Chapter 2 discusses farm employment, wage rates, and earning estimates, as reported in "Farm Labor," a monthly series estimating the total number of persons who do farm work, and in "The Hired Farm Working Force of (year)," an annual series estimating the number of persons paid to perform farmwork at any time during the year. The descriptions contain historical background, limitations of the series, definitions and concepts, and other information. (SB)
