NASS has collected statistics on the number of honey bee colonies and U.S. honey production for decades as part of the Census of Agriculture and in annual estimates. In order to build an even more robust scientific body of knowledge on honey bees at USDA, NASS began in 2016 to collect data on honey bee health and pollination costs. Reliable, up-to-date statistics help track honey bee mortality.
