Agricultural Trade Multipliers (ATM)

Date: Wednesday, March 30, 2022

Time: 1:00 PM ET

Duration: 1 hour

Host: Wendy Zeng

Did you know the U.S. exported a record $150.1 billion in agricultural goods in 2020? These exports generated a total of $304.4 billion of income in the U.S. economy and supported a total of 1.13 million jobs. 

USDA Economic Research Service's Agricultural Trade Multipliers provide annual estimates of employment and output effects of trade in farm and food products on the U.S. economy. When expressed as multipliers, these effects reflect the amount of economic activity and jobs generated by agricultural exports. In this webinar, ERS Economist Wendy Zeng will present the highlights and potential takeaways from the ATM data product, provide an overview of what ATM is used for, and walk participants through how to use the online calculator.
