Statistical Methodology

Survey Procedures: Questionnaires are mailed about the 24th of each month to 
all operators on the list of approximately 800 public and private cold 
storage warehouses. In addition, data are obtained from special surveys and 
other sources. All survey data represent stocks as of the end of the month.

Data are collected from warehouses artificially cooled to a temperature of 50 
degrees Fahrenheit or lower, and whose food products are normally stored for 
30 days or more. All food items in these facilities are reported regardless 
of the number of days stored at the time of the report. Also included are 
specialized storage facilities meeting the 30 day requirement, such as fruit 
houses, dairy manufacturing plants, frozen fruit, fruit juice, vegetable 
processors, and poultry and meat packing plants. Excluded are stocks in space 
maintained by wholesalers, jobbers, distributors, chain stores, locker plants 
containing individual lockers, meat packer branch houses, and frozen food 
processors whose entire inventories are turned over more than once a month.

All commodities reported on the cold storage report are regardless of 
ownership or origin. NASS does not differentiate between commodities owned by 
manufacturer, producer, wholesaler, retailer, government owned, or 
domestically produced vs. imported.

Estimating Procedures: Data for reporting firms are added to estimates for 
non-reporting firms to obtain regional and National totals. Estimates for 
non-reporting firms are obtained by multiplying the previous month's figure 
by a percent change from the previous month. The percent change is calculated 
for each item from totals of the current and previous month summed from firms 
that reported both months.

Revision Policy: Data are revised the following month based on late reports 
or corrected data. Final figures are published in the annual summary in 
February of the following year.

Reliability: Reports are received from 600 firms each month which represent 
about 75 percent of the total capacity. Firms that are not on the list or 
firms who have never reported are not represented in the data. Plants storing 
butter or cheese are required under Federal law as defined in Public Laws 
106-532 and 107-171 to complete the monthly Cold Storage report. Monthly data 
can vary due to different firms reporting month to month. Survey data are 
also subject to non-sampling errors such as omissions and mistakes in 
reporting and in processing the data. While these errors cannot be measured 
directly, they are minimized by carefully reviewing all reported data for 
consistency and reasonableness.
