Premium Subsidies by Cause of Loss in the United States

The premium subsidies by cause of loss in the table below are lower than total premium subsidies for this state because the USDA Risk Management Agency only reports premium subsidies by cause of loss for policies that paid an indemnity. Non-indemnified policies and their associated premium subsidies are not reported by cause of loss.
