Introduction: Agriculture in Slovenia

Area (Register of Spatial Units, 2001) 20 273 km2

- wooded area 60 %

- all agricultural area 34 %

- other 6 %

Population of RS (2002)

1 964 036

Population on family farms’ households (AC, 2000)

322 981 or 16 % of population

GDP of Agriculture, Hunting and Forestry (2002)

2,8 %

Challenges of adapting the slovenian national statistical system of agriculture

Adjustment of agriculture statistics to requirements of the EU and otherinternational organisations

- the period up to 2000

  • Data collection:

  • up to 1997: on the basis of estimates by statisticians

    and experts on the field

  •  since 1997 data have been collected in different ways

  • (also with sample survays with interviewers)

Barbara KUTIN, MEXSAI, Cancun 2 – 4 November 2004


Challenges of adapting the slovenian national statistical system of agriculture

Adjustment of agriculture statistics to requirements of the EU and otherinternational organisations

- the period up to 2000

  • Determination of the treshold (criteria for European size class agricultural holdings) and definitions:

  •  adjustment of definitions of agricultural holding and agricultural production to the EU recommendations on the basis of the EU legalislation and thresholds used in some EU Member Countries

  • determination of the treshold ...

Challenges of adapting the slovenian national statistical system of agriculture

Adjustment of agriculture statistics to requirements of the EU and otherinternational organisations

- the period up to 2000

Final treshold for the AC 2000 (124 234 agricultural holdings → finally 93 345)

All agricultural holdings which have:

a) at least 1hectare of UAA, or

b) less than 1 hectare of UAA, but

- at least 0.1 ha of UAA and 0.9 ha of forest, or

- at least 0.5 ha of arable land and kitchen gardens, or

- at least 0.05 ha of intensive vineyards, or

- at least 0.3 ha of all vineyards, or

- at least 0.1 ha of orchard plantations, or

- at least 0.3 ha of all orchards, or

- at least 0.3 ha of vineyards and orchards, or

- 1 and more livestock units (LSU), or

- more than 50 beehives, or

- are market producers of vegetables.

Most data are presented for the agricultural holdigs satisfying the criteria of

the EU comparable treshold (86 466 agricultural holdings):

a) at least 1hectare of UAA, or

b) less than 1 hectare of UAA, but

- at least 0.1 ha of UAA and 0.9 ha of forest, or

- at least 0.3 ha of vineyards and / or orchards, or

- 2 or more livestock units (LSU), or

- 0.15 – 0.3 ha of vineyards and 1 or 2 LSU, or

- more than 50 beehives, or

- are market producers of vegetables.


Challenges of adapting the slovenian national statistical system of agriculture

Adjustment of agriculture statistics to requirements of the EU and otherinternational organisations

- the period up to 2000

Classifications:

Classifications according to which data were collected also needed to be updated.

to take into account data comparability for the period before the change

 complementarity between the updated classification of agricultural products and other classifications defining the same products but for other purposes (e.g. HS/CN, CPA).

 a multilevel classification, which at the lowest level contains a very detailed list of products

Barbara KUTIN, MEXSAI, Cancun 2 – 4 November 2004


Challenges of adapting the slovenian national statistical system of agriculture

Adjustment of agriculture statistics to requirements of the EU and otherinternational organisations

- the period after 2000

  • Statistical register of agricultural holdings

  • to provide a good sampling frame for preparing samples for surveys

  • the history of data on agricultural holdings since 2000

  • updating:

    various statistical sources (statistical surveys),

    IACS (Integrated Administrative and Control System)

    to adjust the method of updating the register

  •  future development:

  • links with other statistical registers

  • business register

    • register of population (‘dead’ agricultural holdings)

Challenges of adapting the slovenian national statistical system of agriculture

Adjustment of agriculture statistics to requirements of the EU and otherinternational organisations

- the period after 2000

  • Use of administrative sources - as much as possible

  • reduce costs, no response burden

  • (current and expected) difficulties with using administrative data

  • methodological work ...

Challenges of adapting the slovenian national statistical system of agriculture

Adjustment of agriculture statistics to requirements of the EU and otherinternational organisations

- the period after 2000

Example 1:

different classifications used in different data sources:

milk and milk products statistics

Example 2:

Use of IACS* data:

- not enough detailed list of variables,

- good quality data are only data on financial supported categories

* IASC = Integrated Administrative and Control System

Barbara KUTIN, MEXSAI, Cancun 2 – 4 November 2004


Challenges of adapting the slovenian national statistical system of agriculture

Adjustment of agriculture statistics to requirements of the EU and otherinternational organisations

- the period after 2000

  • Data dissemination

  • internet dissemination (SI-STAT): use of pc-axis

  • preparation and dissemination of data according to special needs of users: use of Oracle Discovererfor fast tabulating

Challenges of adapting the slovenian national statistical system of agriculture

The future of agriculture statistics EU and other

Continuation of building a statistical system that is

 economical in data collection

 adjustable as regards data sources

and provides

 quality and objective data

New approach and new knowledge in preparing statistical data:

 the needs are changing

 need for harmonisation of administrative sources

future demands, EU and other

future agricultural statististics

present agricultural statistics:

if you want to be up-to-date in the future,

you must forsee future demands today.
