National Land Use Results Tables

2007 National Resources Inventory

Estimates presented here are based upon the latest information from the National Resources Inventory (NRI). The NRI is a longitudinal sample survey based upon scientific statistical principles and procedures. It is conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), in cooperation with Iowa State University’s Center for Survey Statistics and Methodology. These results are based upon the 2007 NRI, which provides nationally consistent data for the 25-year period 1982–2007. Estimates here cover the contiguous 48 states. Separate estimates include Hawaii, Alaska, and the Caribbean.

Margins of error are reported for each NRI estimate and must be considered at all scales of analysis. The margin of error is used to construct the 95 percent confidence interval for the estimate. The lower bound of the interval is obtained by subtracting the margin of error from the estimate; the upper bound is obtained by adding the margin of error to the estimate. A 95 percent confidence interval means that in repeated samples from the same population, 95 percent of the time the true underlying population parameter will be contained within the lower and upper bounds of the interval. In the following tables, if there are instances where the margin of error is greater than or equal to the estimate, they are displayed in italics indicating that the confidence interval includes zero and the estimate should not be used.

Notes:
• Acreages for Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) land, water areas, Federal land, and total surface area are established through geospatial processes and administrative records; therefore, statistical margins of error are not applicable and shown as a dashed line (--).
• CRP was not implemented until 1985.
• Cropland includes cultivated and non-cultivated cropland.

1982 land cover/use totals are listed in the right hand vertical column, titled 1982 total. 2007 land cover/use totals are listed in the bottom horizontal row, titled 2007 total. The number at the intersection of rows and columns with the same land cover/use designation represents acres that did not change from 1982 to 2007. Reading to the right or left of this number are the acres that were lost to another cover/use by 2007. Reading up or down from this number are the acres that were gained from another cover/use by 2007.

Notes:
• Acreages for Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) land, water areas & Federal land are established through geospatial processes and administrative records; therefore, statistical margins of error are not applicable and shown as a dashed line (--).
• When the estimate is 0.0, margins of error are not applicable and shown as a dashed line (--).
• CRP was not implemented until 1985.
• Cropland includes cultivated and non-cultivated cropland.
• Instances where the margin of error is greater than or equal to the estimate are displayed in italics indicating that the confidence interval includes zero and that the estimate should not be used.

1987 land cover/use totals are listed in the right hand vertical column, titled 1987 total. 1992 land cover/use totals are listed in the bottom horizontal row, titled 1992 total. The number at the intersection of rows and columns with the same land cover/use designation represents acres that did not change from 1987 to 1992. Reading to the right or left of this number are the acres that were lost to another cover/use by 1992. Reading up or down from this number are the acres that were gained from another cover/use by 1992.
