Agriculture Facts & Figures
A National Statistics Publication for Scotland.
Do you know how many sheep there are in Scotland? Or how much milk is produced? Or the size of the food & drink industry? These and many other key agricultural statistics can be found in the handy pocket-sized Facts and Figures card for the Agriculture Sector published by the Scottish Government today.
The 12-page leaflet brings together a wide range of information from the Government’s agriculture analysts, and serves as a useful reference for information on Scottish agriculture. It will be distributed free of charge at the Scottish Government’s pavilion at this year’s Royal Highland Show.
- The documents released today were produced by independent statistical staff, free from any political interference, in accordance with professional standards set out in the Code of Practice for Official Statistics
- An electronic version of the Agriculture Facts and Figures card can be accessed at www.gov.scot/agrifactsfigs2019
- These statistics are used by government and stakeholders to monitor and assess the economic well-being of the agricultural sector and for policy evaluation.
