We are unable to determine exactly where the last six states in the list above belong in the chicken egg production rankings for two reasons. One, the states' data are not published to "avoid disclosure of confidential information about individual producers" and, two, these states are not ranked in any of the Economic Research Service's available data sets. We do know that they are not among the top 25. This means that they rank among the states below Wisconsin.

The numbers listed for "Value ($1,000)" represent the value of the product or commodity in thousands of dollars. For example, the number 450,000 is equal to $450,000,000.

Note: Data are not collected by the Economic Research Service in surveys for some minor commodities and for some minor producing states for commodities that are surveyed. This is why percentages do not always add up to 100% and all states that produce a product may not be listed.
