Improving agricultural statistics
The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry is committed to delivering accurate, timely and reliable analysis and data about Australian agriculture. As the department’s research arm, ABARES is working with the Australian Bureau of Statistics to modernise the agricultural statistics system. Modernisation will ensure the long term sustainability of the system by reducing survey burden, particularly for farmers, reducing data collection costs and improving the quality of statistics.
For more information on the modernisation process and latest news, visit the Improving agricultural statistics webpage.
Australian Agricultural Census 2020–21 visualisations
The Australian Agricultural Census 2020–21 visualisations is based on the most recent agricultural census data collected by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) for 2020–21.

- Australian Statistical Geography Standard Edition 3 regions for Statistical Area level 2 (SA2), state and national data
- Local Government Area (LGA), state and national data.

- Production including the area planted or harvested, production and number of livestock or trees
- Number of businesses
- Gross value of productions.
