ARMS Data

Economic Research Service (ERS) Agricultural Resource Management Survey (ARMS) Tailored Reports

Tailored reports allow the public user to view and download a variety of statistics summarizing the ARMS data. The user can select from several menus to create custom reports on topics ranging from the farm balance sheet to pesticide application methods. The tailored reports tool is segmented in two broad sections:

  • Farm Structure and Finance
    Structure and financial status and performance of U.S. farm operators, their households, and farm businesses. Data were last added December 12, 2018 reflecting the 2017 survey. See Update and Revision History for details on all revisions.
    A zipped bulk data file containing all of the summary data for 2017 is available. Note that the file is larger than the maximum observation limit for Excel and must be opened in another software program. Additional years are available upon request from the ERS ARMS Team.
  • Crop Production Practices
    Status and trends in crop production practices for several field crops. Data were last updated April 23, 2015 reflecting the 2013 survey.
