USDA Economic Research Service (ERS)

The USDA Economic Research Service (ERS) provides economic analyses to support:

  • A competitive agricultural system.
  • A safe food supply.
  • A healthy, well-nourished population.
  • Harmony between agriculture and the environment.
  • An enhanced quality of life for rural Americans.

NIFA partners with the ERS to disseminate research findings and present federal budget requests in areas of common interest to USDA. These areas include child care and after-school needs in rural America and other issues related to child and family well-being.
