FSIS collects various types of data on the Agency's activities. These
data range from counts of regulated federal meat and poultry
establishments to information on the total volume of meat and poultry
slaughtered in regulated establishments.
These data are routinely summarized into high level reports produced to
keep track of national and district level trends, as well as information for Agency planning and policy development.
This page contains summary reports of these data, as well as links to
datasets. FSIS also posts a smaller subset of FSIS and USDA data on

In addition to robust data collection activities supported by FSIS, the Agency
also conducts various analyses of FSIS data and data from other federal partners.
