This is the fifth volume of the 11 final reports of the Fourteenth Census, taken in the year 1920. The statistics and other materials found in these volumes are based upon data originally issued as advance bulletins for population, agriculture, irrigation, drainage, manufactures, and mines and quarries.
Volume V, Agriculture, contains statistics in 14 chapters: farms and farm property; size of farms; farm tenure; farm statistics by color and tenure of farmer; farm statistics by race, nativity, and sex of farmer; farm operators by age, number of years on farm, and farm experience; farm mortgages; selected farm expenses, cooperation, and farm facilities; live stock on farms and elsewhere; live stock products; summary for all crops with data for sale of selected crops; individual crops; forest products of farms, and nurseries and greenhouses; and farm population. The volume is exclusive of irrigation and drainage.
Census statistics date back to 1790 and reflect the growth and change of the United States. Past census reports contain some terms that today’s readers may consider obsolete and inappropriate. As part of our goal to be open and transparent with the public, we are improving access to all Census Bureau original publications and statistics, which serve as a guide to the nation's history.
