Growing Connections Across USDA for Innovation in Food Safety and Nutrition

Though our celebrations may be smaller and closer to home this holiday season, food will still be the centerpiece of many festivities.

Safe Agricultural Data Collection and Delivery

For over 150 years, USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) has been gathering accurate, timely and useful data in service to U.S. agriculture.

All NASS surveys can be completed online but sometimes we need to reach out by phone or in-person.
