Census of agriculture 2010

Results of the census of agriculture 2010 and main results of the agricultural census from EuroStat

Censuses of agriculture provide a comprehensive and up-to-date picture of the situation in agriculture at the levels of administrative districts and municipalities as well as for Länder and the Federation as a whole.

As censuses of agriculture require huge efforts, they are conducted only about every 10 years.

For information on the bases of the survey and for the questionnaires please refer to the following sections: background of the census of agriculture 2010, survey structure, themes, questionnaires, publications, links to other offices and organisations.

For questions on how the census of agriculture is conducted please contact the persons responsible at the relevant statistical offices of the Federation and the Länder.
