The first estimates for major broadacre crops and livestock categories from the 2005-06 Agricultural Census were released today by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).
Key findings from the 2005-06 Agricultural Census
The Agricultural Census is the second largest statistical collection undertaken by the ABS and the 2005-06 Agricultural Census collected data from approximately 155,000 agricultural businesses recorded on the Australian Taxation Office's Australian Business Register (ABR).
The adoption of the ABR is intended to provide better coverage of agricultural businesses and a more accurate picture of agricultural activity in Australia. However, this has made it difficult to provide an exact measure of the change between 2004-05 and 2005-06 and therefore changes should be considered indicative only.
Further details are in Principal Agricultural Commodities, Australia (Preliminary) 2005-06 (cat. no. 7111.0).
