Real indexes adjust nominal exchange rates for relative rates of inflation among countries. A higher value means the dollar has appreciated. The weights used for "total U.S. merchandise exports" index are based on U.S. total merchandise exports to the largest 85 trading partners. Weights are based on relative importance of major U.S. customers, competitors in world markets, and suppliers to the U.S. Indexes are subject to revisions for up to 1 year due to delayed reporting by some countries. High-value products are total agricultural exports less bulk exports. Source: Nominal exchange rates are obtained from the IMF International Financial Statisitics. Exchange rates for the EU-12 are obtained from the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. Full historical series are available back to January 1970 at http://www.ers.usda.gov/data/exchangerates/ 1. A major revision to the weighting scheme and commodity definitions was completed in May 2000. This significantly altered the series from previous versions. Beginning in August 2002, the base of the series has been changed from 1995 to 2000. Information contact: Mathew Shane (202) 694-5282 or email:mshane@ers.usda.gov.

A positive value of inventory change represents current-year production not sold by December 31. A negative value is an offset to production from prior years included in current-year sales. 2. Final sector output is the gross value of commodities and services produced within a year. Net value added is the sector's contribution to the National economy. Net farm income is farm operators' share of income from the sector's production activities.

Note: Operator household income is estimated only for family farms. Starting in 2005, "family farm" is defined as any farm where the majority of the business is owned by the operator and individuals related to the operator by blood, marriage, or adoption. Under the previous definition, family farms farms were farms organized as sole proprietorships, legal partnerships, or family corporations. The previous definition also excluded any business operated by a hired manager. The current definition recognizes that hired managers may have an ownership interest in the business. F = forecast. n.a. = not available. 1. This table derives farm operator household income estimates from the Agricultural Resource Management Study (ARMS) that are consistent with Current Population Survey (CPS) methodology. The CPS, conducted by the Census Bureau, is the source of official U.S. household income statistics. The CPS defines money income to include any income received as cash. The CPS definition departs from a strictly cash concept by including depreciation as an expense that farm operators and other self-employed people subtract from gross receipts when reporting net cash income. Both ERS and CPS exclude net capital gains/losses as household income. 2. Starting in 2006, the C-corporation operator household earnings from the farm operation is the corporate dividends plus wages paid to the household. For all other legal organization farms, the operator household earnings is the full household share of current adjusted farm business income. 3. The ARMS collects farm business depreciation as reported for tax purposes. 4. For this deduction, operator wages are set at zero because wages paid to the operators of corporations are already deducted in the farm business income statement. For all other organizations, wages paid to the operator are subtracted here because they are not shared among other households that have claims on farm business income. However, for all organization types, these wages are added to the operator household's adjusted farm business income to obtain a measure of farm self-employment income. 5. Gross rental income is subtracted here because net rental income from the farm operation is added below to income received by the household. 6. More than one household may have a claim on the income of a farm business. On average, 1.1 households share the income of a farm business. 7. Wages paid to other operator household members by the farm business and net income from a farm business other than the one being surveyed. In 2002 only, also includes the value of commodities provided to household members for farm work. Starting in 2003, this category includes farmland rental. 8. Wages, salaries, net income from nonfarm businesses, interest, dividends, transfer payments, etc. In 2002 only, also includes net cash income from farm land rental. 9. From the CPS.

Information contact: Annette Clauson (202) 694-5389 Note: This table differs from Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE), table 2, for several reasons: (1) this series includes only food, excluding alcoholic beverages and pet food which are included in PCE; (2) this series is not seasonally adjusted, whereas PCE is seasonally adjusted at annual rates; (3) this series reports sales only, but PCE includes food produced and consumed on farms and food furnished to employees; (4) this series includes all sales of meals and snacks, while PCE includes only purchases using personal funds, excluding business travel and entertainment.
