Thematic publication

This is a thematic publication on Danish agriculture written in Danish but with an English summary. The publication focuses on number of farms, livestock, production of pigs, investments in agriculture and farm shops.

On-line database

Micro-data access

Every survey results in a final survey register for all farms which took part in the survey. Only authorised colleagues at Statistics Denmark have access to these registers as they contain confidential information. The surveys are, however, delivered digitally to the National Danish Archive. Till now surveys for these years have been delivered: 1985 and 1989-2019. Also Eurostat receives the surveys according to EU regulations on farm structure statistics for agriculture. The data are individual but anonymous. Eurostat has an obligation to treat the information confidentially so only a few colleagues have authorization to access the data. Based on this arrangement Statistics Denmark has delivered the surveys to Eurostat for these years: 1989, 1993, 1995, 1997, 1999, 2003, 2005, 2007, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2016 and 2020. Finally also researchers may get access to anonymous survey data.

Confidentiality - policy

The rules on confidentiality of Statistics Denmark are observed.

Confidentiality - data treatment

When designing statistical tables the aim is to secure that no table cells contain very few farm, less than 5. It means that for example certain distributions by size of livestock are shown for the whole country only and not geographically.
