PROPOSED CHANGES TO AGRICULTURE SURVEY PROGRAM
1.1 CURRENT ABS AGRICULTURE AND NRM SURVEY PROGRAM
It should be noted that this summary isn't comprehensive as it doesn't include all the various agricultural surveys that ABS runs such as the quarterly livestock survey. The intent is primarily to highlight how the NRM and Ag surveys would interact if the NRM survey was changed by one year.
PROPOSED NEW SURVEY PROGRAM
The ABS is proposing to change both the timing and the content of it's Agricultural and NRM survey programs. Table 1.2 presents the proposed new program survey schedule. Table 1.3 presents the broad information requirements to be collected in the Agriculture survey program.
Essentially the NRM survey will move forward by one year to better meet the reporting needs of the Caring for our Country initiative. This means for the 2008-09 reference year, there will be no ABS NRM survey conducted. For the 2009-10 reference year, an NRM survey will be conducted to be known as the Resource Managers survey. It is possible that the Agriculture survey and Resource Managers survey will be combined along similar lines to the 2007-08 ARMS.
1.2 PROPOSED AGRICULTURE AND NRM SURVEY PROGRAM
The program and information requirements to be met are summarised in Table 1.3 below, and include:
