172 10/25/2016 Meat Price Spreads Data product N/A On October 25, 2016, the Meat Price Spreads data product was reposted to correct an error in the September 2016 “retail-to-consumer” price spread for turkey. The original data reported only the retail turkey price of 155.9 cents per pound. After subtracting the wholesale price of 123.57 cents per pound, the actual estimate of the retail-to-consumer spread for turkey is 32.3 cents per pound.

169 9/20/2016 Outlook VGS-357 On September 20, 2016, the Special article, "An Overview of Organic Vegetable Production in the United States" included in the Vegetables and Pulses Outlook report (VGS-357) was reposted to correct errors in Table 1. All values in the columns “Organic operations (number),” “Total organic area harvested (acres),” and “Average operation size (acres)” were corrected to reflect organic vegetable production numbers and not total agricultural production. Corrections were also made in the text to match the new data in Table 1.
168 9/13/2016 Publication EIB-138 On September 13, 2016, ERS revised the categorization of households with members categorically eligible for WIC to exclude households where the only categorically eligible member was a child age 5. These children were incorrectly included previously; imputed income measures were also used as these measures became available since the report’s release; revised survey weights were also used to update all estimates in the report. Because of these changes, all of the estimates in the report have been revised. However, the results were not numerically or substantively different after these revisions were made, with one exception— the result that WIC participants were more likely to use supercenters as their primary store was no longer statistically significant. The text has been adjusted to reflect all of these changes.

The results from EIB-138 were used in three ERS Charts of Note dated March 23, 2015; July 15, 2015; and August 11, 2015; and an Amber Waves feature article “Most U.S. Households Do Their Main Grocery Shopping at Supermarkets and Supercenters Regardless of Income,” dated August 3, 2015. For all but the August 11, 2015, Chart of Note, changes in estimates were not numerically or substantively different. In the August 11, 2015, Chart of Note, the difference between WIC participants’ and nonparticipants’ choice of supercenters as their primary stores was no longer statistically significant.
167 8/17/2016 Vegetables and Pulses Data Yearbook Tables Data Product N/A On August 17, 2016, the “Supply and Utilization: Dry Pulse Crops” data set of the Vegetables and Pulses Yearbook was reposted to correct the units for the season-average prices in tables 72 through 84.

A New Approach to Farm Risk Management Analysis Publication ERR-212 On August 11, 2016, a correction was made to the first sentence of the second paragraph of page 1. The original report stated the Federal Crop Insurance Reform Act (FCIRA) was passed in 1995, when, in fact, the Act was passed in 1994. While the changes to farm insurance as a result of FCIRA took effect in 1995, FCIRA became law in 1994.
165 7/20/2016 State Fact Sheets Data product N/A On July 20, 2016, ERS revised the 2012 value for the item "Cropland in pasture (percent)" in the "Farm Characteristics" section of the State Fact Sheets. The value for each State was revised; the value in the U.S. Summary table was correct.

162 7/7/2016 Corn and Soybean Production Costs and Export Competitiveness in Argentina, Brazil, and the United States Publication EIB-154 This report was revised in July 2016 by correcting table 5, which now corresponds with the text.

158 5/9/2016 Agricultural Productivity in the U.S. Data product N/A On May 9, 2016, the data file for table 23 was reposted to remove a duplication of data.

157 5/6/2016 America's Diverse Family Farms: 2015 Edition Publication EIB-146 On May 6, 2016, ERS revised America’s Diverse Family Farms: 2015 Edition to reflect revisions to the data source underlying this report (see ARMS data Updates & Revisions History). The corrections to the underlying data resulted in minor differences between the previous and revised estimates, in most cases. The largest changes were an 8-percentage-point decline in the share of hay produced on small family farms (page 4) and an 8-percent increase in average income from farming earned by all U.S. family farm households (page 9).
156 5/2/2016 ARMS Farm Financial and Crop Production Practices Data product N/A On May 2, 2016, the ARMS data tool was reposted to correct two programming errors.

Also, the information on two charts was clarified to match the data presented: source information on the chart at the top of page 4 was updated to reflect that 2014 data were used, and in the chart on page 6 the horizontal axis legend no longer contains the phrase "in 2000." Finally, the chart depicting educational attainment for rural minorities, and a text reference to it, were corrected to remove the term "(non-Hispanic)," and the chart note was expanded to clarify that "people who identify their origin as Hispanic or Latino may be of any race."

The two files, previously labeled "2014 Tenure, Ownership, and Transition of Agricultural Land (TOTAL), Questionnaire" and "2014 Tenure, Ownership, and Transition of Agricultural Land (TOTAL), Landlord Questionnaire," have been relabeled "2014 Tenure, Ownership, and Transition of Agricultural Land (TOTAL), Operator Questionnaire" and "2014 Tenure, Ownership, and Transition of Agricultural Land (TOTAL), Non-Operator Landlord Questionnaire," respectively.

Fourth-quarter production is expected to be 6.025 billion pounds, about even with fourth-quarter 2014." This corrects for the use of "million" earlier.

An incorrect formula caused interest on operating inputs for Oats to be overestimated by between $2 and $4 per planted acre, and these higher costs were also reflected in the total cost estimates for Oats. Oats was the only commodity affected by this error.
122 5/21/2015 Feed Grains Database Data product N/A On May 20, 2014, ERS reposted the Feed Grains Database to correct an error in the estimates of animal consuming units for 2013 in Table 30 of the Yearbook Tables, as well as the animal unit variables in the Custom Query Application.

The original estimates inadvertently omitted tobacco as a component of this category, and as a result, export totals for each State as well as the reported exports of "Other plant products" were incorrect. The data released on April 6 corrects this error, and report tobacco exports as an independent category.
120 4/21/2015 Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry Outlook: April 2015 Publication LDPM-250 On April 21, page 4 of the Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry Outlook, the weekly Choice beef cutout value was corrected to report that the values advanced to $257.50 on April 10.

117 4/8/2015 Food Dollar Series Data Product N/A On April 8, 2015, ERS’s 2013 updates to nominal tables 1 to 6 in the Food Dollar Series, released on March 31, were revised to correct a coding error caused by a single line of code that reversed the sorting order of industry group value added data. While most corrections throughout the six updated tables are minor, two numbers across all six tables have revisions that are substantial: 1) the output tax share of the food dollar was revised down 3.8 cents, distributed mostly across farm production and food retailing industry groups, and 2) total retail trade value added was revised down 1.8 cents, mostly due to the output tax problem.
116 4/1/2015 Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry Outlook: March 2015 Publication LDPM-249 On April 1, the quarterly 2015 and total 2015 U.S. per capita egg consumption estimates reported in the Red Meat Forecast table of March 2015 Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry Outlook were corrected.

Revisions also incorporate new data that became available following the November 26 release. While changes to individual State level estimates may be larger, at the U.S. level, these corrections and data revisions increased 2013 net farm income by 2 percent, to $129 billion. Also affected were the value of year-end inventories and related measures in the balance sheet, as well as production expenses, total value of production, gross and net value added, the value of inventory change, and their respective crop components in the income statement.
