In July 2013, the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) and the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES) commenced the National Agricultural Statistics Review (NASR), to consider all aspects of the National Agricultural Statistical Information System (NASIS) and assess its ability to inform decision-making.

The review seeks to identify opportunities to improve the system and develop a framework for ongoing assessment, coordination and governance of information needs into the future.

This report provides preliminary findings from the NASR, including consolidated outcomes from the NASR's public submission process and stakeholder consultation. This report’s release also initiates a second phase of consultation and further public comment.
