* The area of administered acreage for each National Forest is the statistic used by IWFIA for area control, data compilation, and reporting. This acreage is 
based on the "publication year" listed for the proclaimed acreage statistic. Acreages cited in the National Forest reports will not necessarily match these
figures due to rounding of expansion factors in the National FIA database system.
** The area of proclaimed acreage for each National Forest is published annually in "Land Areas of the National Forest System, FS-383." The proclaimed acreage
statistics listed are based on the 1996 (publication year) edition.
