The Agricultural Census (AC) will be conducted in 2001. It has been brought forward one year to coincide with the 2001 Census of Population and Housing to improve the value of both sets of data for rural and regional Australia. Data from the AC will be available at the Statistical Local Area (SLA) level. New questions on this AC will address business aspects of farming and land management.
