Farm Management and Climate (ABS cat. no. 4625.0) presents information about perceived changes in climate by managers of Australian agricultural businesses, the impacts of these perceived changes, and the changes in management practices made in response to these perceived changes.
Farm Management and Climate (ABS cat. no. 4625.0) is released within 15 months of the end of the reference period. At present, this publication is only planned for the 2006–07 reference year.
Data from the 2006-07 Natural Resource Management Survey, on which this publication is based, had a live response rate of 87% and has been extensively edited. The data has been checked against earlier years of the survey (2004-05) and other sources, including contact with providers, in order to ensure the accuracy of the estimates produced.
The 2006-07 Natural Resource Management Survey was conducted using a new and expanded frame, based on the Australian Taxation Office's Australian Business Register (ABR). The expanded frame means that estimates from this collection may not be directly comparable with the results from the 2004-05 Natural Resource Management Survey, where applicable. More information on the frame can be found in the explanatory notes section of Natural Resource Management on Australian Farms, 2006-07 (ABS cat. no. 4620.0).
The Natural Resource Management Survey provides a broad range of data about the extent of natural resource management activities undertaken by agricultural businesses. This publication (ABS cat. no. 4625.0) presents data for climate themed questions collected by the survey.
An extensive range of data is available from a variety of agricultural and environmental collections.
