Agriculture Facts & Figures
A National Statistics Publication for Scotland.
The Scottish Government has produced a pocket-sized Facts and Figures card for the Agriculture Sector.
The 12-page leaflet brings together a wide range of information from the Government’s agriculture analysts, and serves as a handy reference for information on Scottish agriculture. It will be distributed free of charge at the Scottish Government’s pavilion at next week’s Royal Highland Show.
Also published online yesterday iwa a spreadsheet containing a large number of tables of data, previously published in the annual Economic Report on Scottish Agriculture. That report has now moved to being produced every five years, but all the data is still being made available on the Government’s website.
The documents released yesterday 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/stats/bulletins/01281
The statistical tables can be accessed at www.gov.scot/Topics/Statistics/Browse/Agriculture-Fisheries/PubEconomicReport
These statistics are used by government and stakeholders to monitor and assess the economic well-being of the agricultural sector and for policy evaluation. Further information on Agriculture and Fisheries statistics within Scotland can be accessed here.
