Research Bulletin (Iowa Agriculture and Home Economics Experiment Station)


The object of this bulletin is to present results of statistical analyses of data from recent sample surveys of agricultural areas and to offer some comments on the sampling procedures followed. The surveys described herein were made in widely differing farming areas: In all of the 99 counties of Iowa, in 26 of the 67 counties in Florida, and in 9 of the 58 counties of California. Except for Iowa (3) these surveys were pioneering a sampling method in their respective areas. In order to observe the way in which this method behaved in different parts of the country we have brought the findings together under one cover.
