Statistical Methodology

Data Sources: Data for the Egg Products report are obtained from Egg
Products Volume Reports (FSIS Form 5200-11) completed by inspectors of FSIS,
USDA.
FSIS is responsible for administering a mandatory inspection program for egg
products under the authority of the Egg Products Inspection Act of 1970. The
act and its associated regulations require that all commercial egg breaking
and processing plants operate under continuous USDA supervision. Reports are
currently received from approximately 60 plants in the United States. Plant
management provides monthly volume data to the resident USDA inspector at
the applicable plant.

Revision Policy: Revisions are generally the result of late reports received
by FSIS from plants. Revisions for the previous month and year-to-date
totals are published in each monthly release.

Procedures and Reliability: FSIS reviews plant data for accuracy and
completeness and provides NASS a data file. NASS reviews the data for
unusual values. The egg products estimates are based on a census of all
commercial egg breaking and processing plants; therefore, there are no
statistical estimation and sampling errors.
