Structural data from agricultural censuses. Country trends 1990–2010. FAOSTAT analytical brief 33


The new FAOSTAT domain structural data from agricultural censuses has been set up to disseminate data collected in national censuses of agriculture. The structural data in the domain includes the size and number of holdings, holder gender, land tenure, legal status of holders, and farm labour, among others. The censuses of agriculture are conducted under the FAO’s World Programme for the Census of Agriculture (WCA), which is a decennial programme. This brief covers the period 1990-2010.
