Statistical Methodology

Data Collection Period: Dairy products estimates are based upon survey data
collected after the close of each month. Production data are provided by the

firms producing dairy products.

Sampling frames and sample size: In 2013, there were 1,272 manufacturers
that
produced one or more dairy products. In states with small numbers of plants,

reports are received from all plants each month. In states with large
numbers
of plants, survey procedures are designed to obtain monthly reports from all

large plants and from a sample of small plants. In some states, the State
Departments of Agriculture assist in collection of data, which eliminates
duplicate reporting and reduces respondent burden.

Modes of data collection: Data are collected by mail, personal and telephone

interviews, facsimile, and via electronic mail.

Terms and definitions: Firms complete the questionnaire using standard
industry definitions and through the aid of instructions and definitions
provided on the questionnaire.

Reliability: Data for the Dairy Products report are collected by a Census of

all known manufacturers of dairy products in the United States. Firms
producing large quantities of dairy products, along with a sample of smaller

firms, are contacted monthly to collect previous month production data.
Those
small firms not contacted monthly are contacted after the close of the year
to obtain previous year production. Production of products at small firms
not
contacted monthly are estimated during the monthly survey based upon check
data, and state and national trends. Small firms are defined as those that
do
not make up a significant portion of the published total. Plants storing
nonfat dry milk and dry whey are required under Federal law as defined in
Public Laws 106-532 and 107-171 to complete the Dairy Products report.
Plants
storing these items are contacted monthly. Additionally, many state
governments have mandated that dairy plants in their state complete the
Dairy
Products report each month. Because the Dairy Products survey is a census,
sampling error should not affect the final estimates, however non-sampling
errors are possible.

Estimating Procedures: In the Regional Field Office (RFO), data reported by
firms are reviewed for reasonableness and consistency by comparing with data

reported in prior months and by data reported by other firms in the State.
Each RFO summarizes data at the Individual State level. State estimates are
submitted to the Agricultural Statistics Board (ASB) along with supporting
comments where they are compared with surrounding states, their region, and
national trends. During both RFO and ASB review, plants are sometimes
contacted again for further verification of numbers reported. After ASB
review, RFO data are summarized into a National level summary.

Revision Policy: Monthly estimates are subject to revision the month
following the preliminary estimates. Annual estimates are published in late
April in the Dairy Products Yearly Summary report which includes any
revisions made to previous 2 years of estimates. Revisions are generally due

to plant data that are received too late to be included in the current
report.
