In assessing the agricultural statistical system the NASR developed the Enduring Goals for Australian Agriculture framework (referred to as the Enduring Goals framework) to align data needs to high level goals for Australia’s agriculture, fisheries and forestry industries.

The Enduring Goals framework provides a means of assessing the relevance of statistics produced within the agricultural statistical system, in that statistics that target these goals will be likely to meet the high level information needs of the agriculture, fisheries and forestry industries. The Enduring Goals were strongly supported by stakeholders during the NASR consultation as being largely reflective of the Australian agriculture, fisheries and forestry industries.

Appendix A presents the Enduring Goals and associated data themes. The data themes assist in describing the range of economic, social and biophysical statistics that inform each goal. Consultation for the 2015-16 Agricultural Census will seek to ensure that the content of the Agricultural Census is aligned to these goals to maximise its relevance and utility to users.
