The Programme for World Census of Agriculture 2000 was the sixth prepared by FAO for encouraging countries to undertake an agricultural census with standardized international concepts, definitions and methodologies. The programme covered the censuses carried out during the decade (1996 – 2005). Some 122 countries carried out an agriculture census during the decade and 114 countries made available their census reports to FAO. This publication is a methodological review of the agricultural censuses conducted within the framework of the Programme for World Census of Agriculture 2000. It covers methodological aspects like enumeration methods and techniques, census frames, geographical and holding type coverage, census scope, data processing and tabulation, data quality and dissemination, integration of agricultural censuses with other censuses and surveys.
