QUALITY DECLARATION - SUMMARY
The accuracy of price data used in compiling these estimates is ensured by the collection of price data from the best known sources. Where a statutory authority handles marketing of the whole or a portion of a product, data are usually obtained from this source. Information is also obtained from marketing reports, wholesalers, brokers and auctioneers. Production data is obtained from a range of high-quality sources, including ABS agricultural commodity collections and industry bodies. Extensive editing of this data and checking of resultant value estimates against earlier years and relevant other sources are used to ensure the accuracy of the estimates produced.
The list of agricultural commodities, for which production and irrigation data was collected by the ABS from 2000-01 to 2006-07, varied from year-to-year, however this product displays a consistent set of commodity groups over the reference period using a recently-developed set of concordances.
This product provides a broad range of up-to-date data about the value of irrigated agricultural commodities produced in Australia. To assist users we have also linked GVIAP with VACP and volume of water applied. Detailed explanatory notes are provided in this publication to assist users in determining and specifying their data requirements and to understand the concepts underlying the data.
The agricultural survey and five-yearly agricultural censuses provide a broad range of data about Australian agricultural commodities through a suite of standard products or as data customised for individual requirements. Detailed explanatory notes are provided with each of these publications to assist users.
Previously estimates of GVIAP were only available on a 4-yearly basis in the ABS Water Account, Australia (cat. no. 4610.0), however with this new product the ABS is producing comprehensive state by commodity tables on an annual basis.
If the information you require is not available as a standard product or service, then ABS Consultancy Services can help you with customised services to suit your needs.
