CONCLUSION

This analysis provides insight into farm managers’ perceptions of whether the climate affecting their holding has changed. Using logistic regression analysis techniques, the relationship between the farm managers’ perception that the climate affecting their holding had changed and a range of manager and farm business characteristics were analysed.

The analysis relies on the perceptions of respondents to the 2006-07 ABS Natural Resource Management Survey. These perceptions may not reflect reality and may be influenced by circumstances prevailing at the time, such as weather conditions. Nevertheless, the analysis provides an assessment of the relationships which may exist to provide policy makers, researchers and the community an insight into these perceptions during a time of heightened interest in the climate and climate change.
