Title: Poultry Slaughtering and Processing Facilities
Geospatial Data Presentation Form: vector digital data
Online Linkage: HSIP GOLD 2015
Description:
Abstract: This dataset represents facilities which engage in slaughtering, processing, and/or warehousing for the purpose of producing poultry and egg products. Facilities where poultry is raised or where eggs are laid are not included in this dataset, as they are included in a separate layer. The source data used for this data layer does not include any facilities in American Samoa, the US Virgin Islands, or Wyoming. Records with "-DOD" appended to the end of the [NAME] value are located on a military base, as defined by the Defense Installation Spatial Data Infrastructure (DISDI) military installations and military range boundaries. At the request of NGA, text fields in this dataset have been set to all upper case to facilitate consistent database engine search results. At the request of NGA, all diacritics (e.g., the German umlaut or the Spanish tilde) have been replaced with their closest equivalent English character to facilitate use with database systems that may not support diacritics. The currentness of this dataset is indicated by the [CONTDATE] field. Based upon this field, the oldest record dates from 01/22/09 and the newest record dates from 07/10/09. The following use cases describe how the data may be used and help to define and clarify requirements.1) A threat against agricultural facilities has been identified and protective measures must be taken to protect the food supply.2) A disaster has occurred, or is in the process of occurring, and facilities in the vicinity must be identified in order to comprehensively evacuate and secure the area.TGS was not tasked with ensuring the completeness of this layer.
Purpose: This dataset represents facilities which engage in slaughtering, processing, and/or warehousing for the purpose of producing poultry and egg products. Facilities where poultry is raised or where eggs are laid are not included in this dataset.

Attribute Label: NAICSCODE
Attribute Definition: NAICS (North American Industry Classification System) Code for entity. NAICS Codes (and NAICS Descriptions) have been assigned based upon the entity's primary function, regardless of if that is the function that qualified it to be included in this dataset. On the other hand, HSIP Themes are assigned based upon the function that qualified an entity for inclusion in this dataset. It is possible that if an entity appears in more than one dataset, then it will have a different HSIP Theme in each dataset, but it should have the same NAICS Code and NAICS Description in each case.

Attribute:
Attribute Label: CITY
Attribute Definition: The name of the city associated with the entity's physical address. For physical addresses that the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) delivers to, this should be a "city" acceptable to the USPS as defined in their Address Information System (AIS). Sometimes the USPS does not deliver mail to a physical address but recognizes the location (i.e., they list the location as "undeliverable"). The cities associated with these locations are acceptable. In some cases, the USPS does not recognize individual physical addresses in a city, rather, they list the city as having "General Delivery". In these cases, the city and associated zip code are acceptable (the entity's [ADDRESS] field will contain a street address, not "general delivery"). The entity may not actually be located within the city limits of the "city" specified in its [CITY] field. Instead, it may actually be located within the city limits of another city. In some cases, the "city" that appears in this field may not even be a city in an administrative sense, but it is still an acceptable "city" to the USPS. An example of this is "Notre Dame, IN". There is no city in Indiana called "Notre Dame", but this is considered an acceptable city by the USPS for any delivery going to the University of Notre Dame which is actually located in the city of South Bend. "Notre Dame", like most USPS cities, is an easily recognized place, and it gives the user of the data a good general idea of where the entity is located (if the entity is located in a small municipality, the USPS "city" may be more recognizable than the name of the municipality), and it would be part of the address one would use to send a shipment to the entity's location. Using the USPS acceptable "city" also allows someone to do a logical consistency check between the zip code and the city by using the USPS AIS. Sometimes an entity may report a city that is not accepted by the USPS, and although TGS has tried to replace those cities with an acceptable alternative, some of them may remain in this dataset.

Attribute Label: NAICSDESCR
Attribute Definition: NAICS (North American Industry Classification System) Description for entity. At the request of NGA, the "Index Entries" that appear on the NAICS webpage (http://www.census.gov/epcd/www/naics.html) are being used to populate this field, as opposed to the "NAICS Title". While there is a one to one correspondence between NAICS Codes and "NAICS Titles", there is a one to many relationship between NAICS Codes and the "Index Entries". By using the "Index Entries", we have placed the entities that make up this layer into more specific categories; however, the user of this data should be aware that this was not the intended purpose of these "Index Entries". The "Index Entries" were intended as a way to search the NAICS database and as a means of enumerating establishment types under the given NAICS Code. Thus, there are often two or more "Index Entries" that are synonyms, for example: "Prisons" and "Penitentiaries". In cases like this, we have standardized on one "Index Entry". NAICS Descriptions (and NAICS Codes) have been assigned based upon the entity's primary function, regardless of if that is the function that qualified it to be included in this dataset. On the other hand, HSIP Themes are assigned based upon the function that qualified an entity for inclusion in this dataset. It is possible that if an entity appears in more than one dataset, then it will have a different HSIP Theme in each dataset, but it should have the same NAICS Code and NAICS Description in each case.
