Price indices in agriculture in the Republic of price Croatia have been for the first time calculated on the 2005 basis within the Phare 2005 Programme and the methodology used has been harmonised according to the Eurostat recommendations.

Sources and data collection methods

Agricultural price indices for the Republic of Croatia have been calculated on the basis of prices data obtained through quarterly surveys on sale and purchase of agricultural products as well as through other surveys carried out by the Croatian Bureau of Statistics, from administrative data of the Ministry of Agriculture and from other administrative sources.

The base year for the calculation of price indices is 2015.

The weight structure was calculated on the basis of the share of individual products in the purchase and sale of agricultural products as well as on the basis of the value of the agricultural production and intermediate consumption from agricultural economic accounts.


Average producer prices of agricultural products are gathered on the basis of quarterly surveys on the purchase and sale of agricultural products whose reporting units are legal entities and parts thereof as well as tradesmen classified into section A Agriculture, forestry and fishing – division 01 (excluding group 01.7 Hunting, trapping and related service activities) and other legal entities and tradesmen engaged in the production or purchase of agricultural products classified into other activity sections of the NKD 2007. The coverage is selective. It includes legal entities employing 10 or more persons and tradesmen employing 5 or more persons.

The prices of goods consumed in agricultural production are derived from other surveys of the Croatian Bureau of Statistics, administrative data of the Ministry of Agriculture and other administrative sources.

Agricultural price indices are calculated at the level of the Republic of Croatia.
