The farm structure statistics are yearly and include figures on number of farms, livestock and crops distributed by for instance size and geography.
The survey unit is the farm, and this is reflected in the statistical tables where the users can find figures for number of farms, employment, crops and livestock distributed by size and region.
For crops and livestock the tables show area and number of animals. Also number of farms growing a crop and number of farms with at least one animal are shown.
All survey characteristics could in principle be cross tabulated so that the users may see e.g. number of animals distributed area size of the farms.
From 2015 the special surveys on production of horticultural products have been integrated in the farm structure survey. In 2015 and 2018 it concerned production of vegetables in green house, in 2016 and 2019 vegetables grown in the open and in 2017 frits and berries
The farm structure survey must include all farms growing either crops or have livestock. For this reason the survey should also include firms which have the main activities in other branches than agriculture, for example forestry. The survey should furthermore include small farms with no business number.
