USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service will hold its biannual Data Users’ Meeting later this month. 

USDA is hosting the meeting to share recent and pending statistical program changes with the public, and to solicit input on programs important to agriculture. 

The event is organized by NASS in cooperation with USDA’s World Agricultural Outlook Board, Farm Service Agency, Economic Research Service, Agricultural Marketing Service, Foreign Agricultural Service and the U.S. Census Bureau. 

Joe Parsons, chair of USDA’s Agricultural Statistics Board, says, “This cooperative venue helps to drive change in our agricultural statistics programs to ensure we are meeting the needs of all stakeholders.” 

The meeting will be Tuesday, April 19, 2022, from 1–4:30 p.m. CT. 

The event will be held at the University of Chicago’s Gleacher Center. 

A virtual attendance option will also be available. 

The meeting is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
