NASS will be convening a panel of subject matter experts covering a broad range of expertise and interests on May 16–17, 2017. This meeting will focus on six questions relating to the publication of demographic data obtained from the 2017 Census of Agriculture. The expert panel is to consider the following questions: (1) What demographic information should NASS publish on persons involved in making decisions for the farm or ranch operation? (2) How does NASS address publications in light of the specific change from single principal operator to multiple persons responsible for decisions? (3) How does NASS present to the data user the correct linkage from the 2017 Census of Agriculture data to data from earlier censuses? (4) A Farm Typology is defined utilizing the designation of a single ‘‘principal operator’’ and is used by the USDA Economic Research Service (ERS) for analysis. NASS also publishes some Census of Agriculture tables based on this Farm Typology. How should NASS link the farm operator data to farm typology as used by ERS? (5) The Census of Agriculture is integrated with the NASS Agricultural Resource Management Survey Phase 3 (ARMS3). Some of the analysis done by ERS is based on the ‘‘principal operator’s’’ household. How should ERS identify the household for use in ARMS3? (6) What new tables and data presentations are needed to publish data from the 2017 Census of Agriculture decision-making questions? During this meeting, the panel will also consider statements provided by the public on data needs relating to demographics. The panel meeting is open to the public. The public is asked to preregister for the meeting at least 10 business days prior to the meeting.
