The U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) announced this week the availability of enhanced data on North American agriculture. Published online, the information is a result of a project sponsored by the North American Tripartite Committee on Agricultural Statistics (NATCAS).
The enhanced information available on the website includes detailed data on people, production, international trade and the horticulture industries in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Website visitors also have access to maps and tables comparing selected data from each country's census of agriculture, including the most recent U.S. Census of Agriculture.
NATCAS is a joint taskforce among agricultural statistics agencies in the United States, Canada and Mexico. The committee works to promote the sharing of information and the standardization of data among the three countries and their various agencies in order to make agricultural statistics more efficient and easily accessible to the public.
The data tables, maps and other information are available online at http://webpage.siap.gob.mx/.
