Description

Nebraska farm income in 2007 by county

Format

A data frame with 93 observations on the following 4 variables.

county

county

crop

crop income, thousand dollars

animal

livestock and poultry income, thousand dollars

area

area of each county, square miles

Details

The variables for each county are:

Value of farm products sold - crops (NAICS) 2007 (adjusted)

Value of farm products sold - livestock, 2007 (adjusted).

Area in square miles.

Note: Cuming county is a very important beef-producing county. Some counties are not reported to protect privacy. Western Nebraska is dryer and has lower income. South-central Nebraska is irrigated and has higher crop income per square mile.
