Broiler-Type Eggs Set in the United States Up 2 Percent

Hatcheries in the United States weekly program set 201 million eggs in
incubators during the week ending November 1, 2014, up 2 percent from a year
ago. Hatcheries in the 19 State weekly program set 195 million eggs in
incubators during the week ending November 1, 2014, up 2 percent from the
year earlier. Average hatchability for chicks hatched during the week in the
United States was 83 percent. Average hatchability is calculated by dividing
chicks hatched during the week by eggs set three weeks earlier.

Broiler-Type Chicks Placed in the United States Up 4 Percent

Broiler growers in the United States weekly program placed 169 million
chicks for meat production during the week ending November 1, 2014, up 4
percent from a year ago. Broiler growers in the 19 State weekly program
placed
163 million chicks for meat production during the week ending November 1,
2014, up 4 percent from the year earlier. Cumulative placements from
December 29, 2013 through November 1, 2014 for the United States were 7.56
billion.
Cumulative placements were up slightly from the same period a year earlier.

Statistical Methodology

Survey Procedures: Data for broiler hatchery estimates are collected weekly
from all broiler-type hatcheries that hatch at least one million chicks a
year. Individual NASS field offices maintain a list of all known hatcheries
and update their lists on a continual basis. All hatcheries that meet the
minimum size criteria are given adequate time to respond to the weekly
survey. Those that do not respond are contacted by telephone.

Estimating Procedures: All data are analyzed for unusual values. Data from
each operation are compared to their own past operating profile and to
trends from similar operations. Data for missing operations are estimated
based on similar operations or historical data. NASS field offices prepare
these estimates by using a combination of survey indications and historic
trends.
Individual State estimates are reviewed by the Agricultural Statistics Board
for reasonableness. Individual hatchery data are summed to State, 19 State
total, Other States, and the United States.

Revision Policy: Revisions are generally the result of late or corrected
data. Revisions made to the previous five-week’s data during the current
week are published in this report. Final estimates are published in the
annual Hatchery Production Summary released in April.

Reliability: Estimates are subject to errors such as omission, duplication,
and mistakes in reporting, recording, and processing the data. While these
errors cannot be measured directly, they are minimized through strict
quality controls in the data collection process and a careful review of all
reported data for consistency and reasonableness.
