Sources and methods of data collection
The Report on the Annual Survey on Crop and Livestock Production collects data on land sown in autumn. Data on land sown are presented in hectares. These data are collected separately for business entities and parts thereof and for private family farms. Data on business entities are collected in two ways: by using the reporting method on an appropriate form or via a web-based application.
Data for private family farms were collected using the telephone interview method applied to the selected stratified sample. The sample for private family farms was selected from the Statistical Register of Agricultural Holdings.
The sample size was conditioned by the financial means allocated from the 2022 State Budget of the Republic of Croatia and the share of private family farms by statistical regions.
The sample consisted of about 22 000 private family farms.
All data were compared to the data from previous years and available administrative sources (bases and registers from the Single Application at the Paying Agency for Agriculture, Fisheries and Rural Development and other relevant sources). On the basis of all available data, corrections were done if necessary.
Data on land sown refer to the situation as on 10 November 2022.
