6 Statistical Methodology Survey Procedures: Grower surveys are conducted in the three estimating s to collect acreage, yield, production data from growers. Additionally, contacts are made with each of the three Hop Commissions. Estimating Procedures: Information obtained from the hops growers surveys are used to establish estimates of hops. These estimates are reviewed for errors, reasonableness, consistency with historical estimates industry check data. Revision Policy: All hop estimates are subject to revision the following year based on a thorough review of all available data. Reliability: Survey results are subject to non-sampling errors such as omission, duplication, imputation for missing data, mistakes in reporting, recording, processing the data.
