The agriculture sector is an important source of employment in regional and rural Australia. The number of people employed in agriculture and related services decreased slightly in 2004 to 345,700 persons, following a significant drop in 2003 (table 14.5). The significant reduction in 2003 was largely the result of the drought experienced over most of Australia during that period, which severely affected the agriculture sector. The majority of persons employed in agriculture in 2004 were male (69%).
