  • Abstract

    This data collection contains time series data on a selected set of agricultural variables for 105 Kansas counties over the period 1874-1936. The study, part of a larger research project on American agriculture funded by the National Science Foundation, was prepared at Yale University as Version 2 of KANATICS (a Kansas Agricultural Time Series/Cross Section), which extends and corrects the first version, a 1977 working paper. The series data in Part 1 are an exact representation of the data found in various quarterly, annual, and biennial reports of the Kansas State Board of Agriculture. Data include information on acreage sown, number of bushels and value of different field crops harvested, and number and value of livestock. Part 2 contains consolidated and manipulated series data, including manipulations of the series in Part 1, e.g., the value per bushel of various field crops, adjusted total cultivated acres, adjusted field crop income, and prices per animal.

Agricultural production statistics for 105 Kansas counties over the period 1874-1936.
Collection Mode
  • The data are organized in matrix form. Each of the rows of the matrix is a single logical record and consists of 63 observations (one per year) for one county for one variable. Within each matrix, the counties are in alphabetical order. Each variable is fourteen characters wide. Both data files contain some blanks.
