The National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS – a department of the USDA) has been collecting statistics how many US hives we have as well as how much honey we produce as a nation. They have been doing this for over 20 years as part of the USDA census and ag estimates. In 2016 they began tracking stats on pollination and bee health as well. Their data is some of the most useful in the industry. Please check out their links for more info:
