Statistical Methodology

Survey Procedures: Data for annual chicken and turkey hatchery counts and
incubator capacities are collected in January from all known hatcheries which
have the capacity to hold at least 1,000 chicken and/or turkey eggs.
Approximately 300 chicken hatcheries are contacted for information on a
weekly, monthly, and/or annual basis. While, approximately 60 turkey
hatcheries are contacted each month and/or annually. Individual NASS field
offices maintain a list of all known hatcheries and use known sources to
update their lists. Hatcheries are mailed a questionnaire as close to the
survey reference date as possible and given adequate time to respond via
mail, fax, or electronic data reporting (EDR). Those that do not respond are
contacted by phone. Care is exercised to ensure that all sampled hatcheries
are accounted for in the estimate.

Data for chicken hatchery estimates are collected based on type of chicken
hatched. Broiler-type hatchery data are collected weekly from all broiler-
type hatcheries that hatch at least one million chicks a year. States
receiving greater than 500,000 chicks annually for grow-out are included in
Other States for chick placed. Egg-type hatchery data are collected monthly
from all egg-type hatcheries that hatch at least 50,000 chicks a year.

Data for turkey hatchery estimates are collected monthly from turkey
hatcheries hatching 15,000 or more poults annually.

Estimating Procedures: Sound statistical methodology is employed to derive
the estimates from reported data. 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, regional, and United States totals.

For chicken hatcheries, chicks hatched consist of all chicks of domesticated
breeds including males and chicks intended for hatchery supply flocks and
research purposes. Eggs set are eggs in incubators for the purpose of
hatching. The relationship of egg-type chicks hatched to chicken inventory
and poultry marketings are carefully monitored. Broiler chicks placed are
specifically placed for meat production. Intended placement data reported by
leading breeders include pullet chicks expected from eggs sold the preceding
month. The breeders in this report account for a large percentage of
replacement pullets for hatchery supply flocks. Production of replacement
pullets by these breeders indicates the number of pullets available to
hatchery supply layer flocks several months before the pullets will actually
move into the laying flocks. “Hatchery Supply Flocks” include all generations
of layers which could lay eggs to supply a hatchery. This includes the
generations of parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, pedigree, etc. Also
included are research flocks, vaccine flocks, and specific pathogen-free
flocks. The broiler cumulative potential placements are a moving total of the
intended placements 7-15 months earlier. The egg-type cumulative potential
placements of 7-18 months earlier represent the first laying cycle. Molting
and additional laying cycles will increase the cumulative potential
placements of egg-type hatching flocks.

For turkey hatcheries, only United States level estimates for eggs in
incubators, poults hatched, and net turkey placements are published for all
known turkey hatcheries hatching 15,000 or more poults annually. Net poults
placed refer to placement of poults from hatcheries in the United States,
including imported poults and excluding exported poults.

Revision Policy: Revisions are generally the result of late or corrected
data. Revisions made to any weekly or monthly data during the year are
published in this report.

Reliability: Hatchery estimates are based on a census of all known operating
hatcheries and therefore, have no sampling error. However, 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.
