The 2002 Census of Agriculture median farm size as published June 2004 in Table 1 of the 2002 Volume 1, Chapter 2 County Level Data used data that were adjusted for nonresponse as had been done in previous censuses. All other calculations in 2002 were adjusted for nonresponse and coverage.

Median size of farm values in Table 1 of the 2002 Volume 1, Chapter 2 and values in Table 1 of the 2007 Volume 1, Chapter 2 are not comparable in printed copy or text/pdf format. The 2002 median size of farms has been calculated using nonresponse and coverage weights so that the data are comparable to 2007. This report shows the 2007 median size farm using nonresponse and coverage weights, the 2002 median size farm using nonresponse and coverage weights, and the 2002 median size farm using only nonresponse weights as comparable to 1997 and earlier censuses.
