Farm Policy, Farm Households, and the Rural Economy

Description

The Farm Policy, Farm Households, and the Rural Economy Briefing Room offered a historical perspective on the evolution of U.S. commodity policy, rural households, and rural America. It sought to provide an umbrella for ERS research focusing on farm policy and potential policy reforms with respect to the well-being of farm households and rural communities. This file provides information on the contents of the Briefing Room when it was archived in October 2007.
