The present document presents two case-studies, to illustrate the process of compilation of productivity indicators: i) the calculation of labour productivity based on data collected at farm-level, that is based on a pilot survey in Zambia, and ii) the construction of aggregate and country-level information on agricultural productivity from aggregate time-series.
These Guidelines aim to improve the availability of systematically integrated and comparable sex-disaggregated and gender-relevant data within agricultural surveys by bridging significant data gaps. Specifically, the Guidelines identify key indicators focusing on crop and livestock activities in developing countries where the agricultural sector is largely characterized by agricultural households, and propose adaptations to existing agriculture surveys based on the latest research in survey methods and gender analysis.
The purpose of these Guidelines on data collection for national statistics on forest products is to present and discuss best practices with respect to the collection, compilation and dissemination of statistics on forest products statistics.
These Guidelines aim to support decisions about rural development policy by offering concepts and methods to improve the quality, availability, and use of statistics. The Guidelines present and explain how to construct a rural definition that is useful for organizing statistical information about rural areas.
