Table shows the summary statistics about land ownership in the county
Percentage of Total Land by Land Class
Chart represents the percent of cropland within the county that is planted in a particular type of crop
Cumulative Sum of Acres by Owner
Each point on this graph represents a particular property represented by the area of land grown in a particular crop that is shown on the horizontal x-axis, and the vertical y-axis represents the added acreage of each point and how it contributes to the total acreage planted in a certain type of crop in the county. The shape of the curve illustrates the contribution of varying size classes of properties to the total crop planted (a flatter curve means that larger property owners contribute more to the total cropland planted in the crop, while a steeper curve means that smaller properties contribute more to the total cropland planted in a particular crop type). The point at the far right end of the graph illustrates the largest single planting in a particular crop type in the county which is shown on the horizontal x-axis, while the vertical y-axis shows the total acreage of land planted in that particular crop in the county.
Public vs. Private Ownership of County
Delineates the percent of all land in the county that is privately vs publicly held. Public land includes federal lands such as U.S. Forest Service, State Parks, and county and city lands
Acres and Number of Owners by Size Class
Figure represents the ownership structure of the county’s land across different size classes of properties. It describes a) the number of property owners within a particular size class (blue), and b) the percent of total acreage found in a particular size class (green).
Summary Land Use Statistics
# of Owners
This table shows detailed statistics on the ownership characteristics of particular types of crops that are planted within the county and how much they contribute to the total area of crops planted in the county. If a single property has multiple crops planted, it will be counted within each crop category in the number of owners. The Gini Coefficient is a measure of inequality, with higher values representing a less equal distribution of land planted in that crop type.
