Statistical Methodology

Survey Procedures: Crop progress and condition estimates are based on survey 
data collected each week from early April through the end of November. The 
non-probability crop progress and condition surveys include input from 
approximately 3,600 respondents whose occupations provide them opportunities 
to make visual observations and frequently bring them in contact with farmers 
in their counties. Based on standard definitions, these respondents 
subjectively estimate the progress of crops through various stages of 
development, as well as the progress of producer activities. They also 
provide subjective evaluations of crop conditions.

Most respondents complete their questionnaires on Friday or early Monday 
morning and submit them to the National Agricultural Statistics Service 
(NASS) Field Offices in their States by mail, telephone, fax, e-mail, or 
through a secured internet website. A small number of reports are completed 
on Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. Regardless of when questionnaires are 
completed, respondents are asked to report for the entire week ending on 
Sunday. For reports submitted prior to the Sunday reference date, a degree of 
uncertainty is introduced by projections for weekend changes in progress and 
condition. By the end of the 2018 season, over 95 percent of the data were 
being submitted through the internet website. As a result, the majority of 
all data are submitted on Monday morning, significantly reducing projection 
uncertainty.

Respondents are sent written reporting instructions at the beginning of each 
season and are contacted periodically to ensure proper reporting. Terms and 
definitions of crop stages and condition categories used as reporting 
guidelines are available on the NASS website at 
www.nass.usda.gov/Publications/National_Crop_Progress.

Estimating Procedures: Reported data are reviewed for reasonableness and 
consistency by comparing with data reported the previous week and data 
reported in surrounding counties for the current week. Field Offices 
summarize the reported data to district and State levels, weighting each 
county's reported data by NASS county acreage estimates. Summarized 
indications are compared with previous week estimates, and progress items are 
compared with earlier stages of development and historical averages to ensure 
reasonableness. Weather events and respondent comments are also taken into 
consideration. State estimates are submitted to the Agricultural Statistics 
Board (ASB) along with supporting comments, where they are compared with 
surrounding States and compiled into a National level summary by weighting 
each State by its acreage estimates. National crop planting progress, 
progress of development stages, and condition estimates are weighted using 
the program State's average planted acres over the previous three crop years. 
National crop harvest progress estimates are weighted using the program 
State's average harvested acres over the previous three crop years. Pasture 
and range condition is weighted using pasture acreage and/or livestock 
inventories from the most recent Census of Agriculture. Days suitable for 
fieldwork, topsoil moisture and subsoil moisture are weighted using cropland 
acreage from the Census of Agriculture.
 
Revision Policy: Progress and condition estimates in the Crop Progress report 
are released after 4:00 pm ET on the first business day of the week. These 
estimates are subject to revision the following week.
