VHIB Estimate of Horse Population in Virginia

In order to estimate the numnber of horses living in Virginia by age breed and locality CSR acquired electronic and paper records of Coggins tests in Virginia. These records provided a sampling frame for a survey of 5 600 horse owners. There were 2 804 respondents. A subsequent survey of veterinarians informed estimates of Coggins test rates by seven regions of Virginia. The data were weighted up to produce the estimated numbers of horses.
