This publication provides a review of the literature on methodologies applied for data collection and processing of cost of production (CoP) in agriculture in developed and developing countries.
These guidelines are the result of a comprehensive effort to develop a standard methodology to assess countries’ capacity to produce agricultural statistics. The presented methodology takes into account previous similar international efforts for building standard frameworks to assess statistical systems’ capacity and data quality.
These guidelines are the result of a comprehensive effort to develop a standard methodology to design strategic plans for agricultural and rural statistics in line with the NSDS methodology developed by PARIS21.
Country assessments are the starting point for the implementation of the Global Strategy at country level.
Under the research component of Global Strategy, significant progress has been made towards the development and the implementation of an Integrated Survey Framework. Research mainly focused on developing countries with the objective of producing integrated and consistent agricultural statistics on phenomena related to three different target populations from rural households, farms and agricultural plots.
This technical paper on identifying the most appropriate sampling frame for specific landscape types is the result of a comprehensive literature review on the subject, followed by a gap analysis and development of innovative methodological proposals for addressing any issues that emerged.
