PDF File Size: 1.5 MB | Download   
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is the leading United Nations agency providing guidelines for the conduct of agricultural censuses worldwide. This publication provides updated guidelines to countries for the conduct of agricultural censuses in the 2020 census round, which covers the period between 2016 and 2025. It is the tenth round in the decennial programme of agricultural censuses, which started in 1930. It is recognized that countries use a range of census methodological approaches according to their circumstances, development levels and needs. A review of experiences and lessons learned in the 2010 census round showed that the census of agriculture can be conducted in many different ways. This publication features the discussion of four modalities for conducting a census of agriculture: the classical (one-off) approach, which is still widely used; the modular approach, which was introduced in the World Programme for the Census of Agriculture (WCA) 2010; the integrated census/survey modality, involving rotating survey modules over the years between two censuses; and the combined census modality, which uses administrative data. The distinguishing features are in the design of these four modalities and not in whether complete or sample enumeration is used. This chapter provides historical background on the World Programme for the Census of Agriculture 2020 (WCA 2020) and presents the objectives of the agricultural census. The programme considers four modalities for conducting a census of agriculture, namely, the classical approach which is still widely used, the modular approach which was introduced in the 2010 census round, the integrated census/survey modality and the
combined census modality with use of administrative data. The programme highlights
the synergies with the “Global Strategy to Improve Agricultural and Rural Statistics (2010) which underlines the importance of the census for the integration of agriculture into a country’s national statistical system. Thus, the integration of the census of agriculture into the overall system of agricultural statistics is further emphasized. The main features and changes from earlier agricultural census programmes are also highlighted.
