International comparison of the results of the WCA 2000 round (1996-2005)

Background

Since the 1950 round of censuses, Statistics Division of FAO has published International Comparison Studies at the end of each round except for the 1980 round. For the1950 round the following subjects were covered in detail, including graphic presentation: Number and area of holdings, land tenure and land use; all classified by size of holding. For the 1960, 1970 and 1990 rounds detailed final reports were prepared covering all items proposed by the respective FAO Programmes. For the 2000 round a report covering selected items, considered important, was prepared.
