The third major publication to come out of the 2011 Agricultural Census is Water Use on Australian Farms, 2010-11.
This publication presents final estimates of agricultural water use, including pastures and crops irrigated, irrigation water sources and irrigation water management. Data will be available for a range of sub-state geographic levels including Natural Resource Management (NRM) region, Statistical Local Area (SLA), Statistical Area 2 (SA2), Statistical Division (SD) and Murray-Darling Basin (MDB).
Data for the Murray-Darling Basin region were derived from a concordance of River Basins which fall mostly within the MDB region.
The publication will be released on 29 June 2012 in Water Use on Australian Farms
(cat. no. 4618.0). Small area data for the sub-state geographies detailed above will be added to the publication as data cubes in October 2012.
