The Contribution of Energy Extraction Activities to Farm Household Wellbeing: Oil, Gas, and Wind Lease and Royalty Income

In 2012, farm households reported receiving a total of $1.8 billion in lease and royalty income from energy production activities, making up about 1% of farm household total income. Payments are highly concentrated, primarily on large farms and in the South and Midwest.
