WELCOME TO THE AGRICULTURAL SURVEY 2006-07
This publication presents final commodity and livestock estimates from the 2006-07 Agricultural Survey at the standard ABS geography of Statistical Division (SD). Data are also presented for Natural Resource Management (NRM) Regions.
Final estimates at national and state levels can be found in Agricultural Commodities, Australia 2006-07 (cat. no. 7121.0).
The ABS Agricultural Survey collects area and production data for a wide range of agricultural commodities, but not all commodities are collected in each state; rather, commodities appropriate to agriculture in each state are collected. For example, data for tropical and sub-tropical fruit are collected in the northern states, such as Queensland, while data for temperate fruit are collected in the southern states such as Tasmania.
ABS publications draw extensively on information provided freely by individuals, businesses, governments and other organisations. Their continued cooperation is very much appreciated: without it, the wide range of statistics published by the ABS would not be available. Information received by the ABS is treated in strict confidence as required by the Census and Statistics Act 1905.
