Table description


This table contains data at regional level on the number of persons employed on agricultural holdings, the corresponding annual work units (AWUs) and the number of holdings with workers.

The figures in this table are derived from the agricultural census. Data collection for the agricultural census is part of a combined data collection for a.o. agricultural policy use and enforcement of the manure law.

Regional breakdown is based on the main location of the holding. Due to this the region where activities (crops, animals) are allocated may differ from the location where these activities actually occur.

The agricultural census is also used as the basis for the European Farm Structure Survey (FSS). Data from the agricultural census do not fully coincide with the FSS. In the FSS years (2000, 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2010)
additional information was collected to meet the requirements of the FSS.

Data on labour force refer to the period April to March of the year preceding the agricultural census.

From 2018 onwards the number of calves for fattening, pigs for fattening, chicken and turkey are adjusted in the case of temporary breaks in the production cycle (e.g. sanitary cleaning).
The agricultural census is a structural survey, in which adjustment for temporary breaks in the production cycle is a.o. relevant for the calculation of the economic size of the holding, and its farm type.
In the livestock surveys the number of animals on the reference day is relevant, therefore no adjustment for temporary breaks in the production cycle are made.
This means that the number of animals in the tables of the agricultural census may differ from those in the livestock tables (see ‘links to relevant tables and relevant articles).

From 2017 onwards, animal numbers are increasingly derived from I&R registers (Identification and Registration of animals), instead of by means of the combined data collection. The I&R registers are the responsibility of RVO (Netherlands Enterprise Agency). Since 2017, cattle numbers are derived from I&R cattle, and from 2018 sheep, goats and poultry are also derived from the relevant I&R registers. The registration of cattle, sheep and goats takes place directly at RVO. Poultry data is collected via the designated database Poultry Information System Poultry (KIP) from Avined. Avined is a branch organization for the egg and poultry meat sectors. Avined passes the data on to the central database of RVO. Due to the transition to the use of I&R registers, a change in classification will occur for sheep and goats from 2018 onwards.

Since 2016, information of the Dutch Business Register is used to define the agricultural census. Registration in the Business Register with an agricultural standard industrial classification code, related to NACE/ISIC, (in Dutch SBI: ‘Standaard BedrijfsIndeling’) is leading to determine whether there is an agricultural holding. This aligns the agricultural census as closely as possible to the statistical regulations of Eurostat and the (Dutch) implementation of the definition of 'active farmer' as described in the common agricultural policy.

The definition of the agricultural census based on information from the Dutch Business Register mainly affects the number of holdings, a clear deviation of the trend occurs. The impact on areas (except for other land and rough grazing) and the number of animals (except for sheep, and horses and ponies) is limited. This is mainly due to the holdings that are excluded as a result of the new delimitation of agricultural holdings (such as equestrian centres, city farms and organisations in nature management).

In 2011 there were changes in geographic assignment of holdings with a foreign main seat. This may influence regional figures, mainly in border regions.

Until 2010 the economic size of agricultural holdings was expressed in Dutch size units (in Dutch NGE: 'Nederlandse Grootte Eenheid'). From 2010 onwards this has become Standard Output (SO). This means that the threshold for holdings in the agricultural census has changed from 3 NGE to 3000 euro SO. For comparable time series the figures for 2000 up to and including 2009 have been recalculated, based on SO coefficients and SO typology. The latest update was in 2016.

Data available from: 2000

Status of the figures: the figures for 2021 are provisional, the other figures are final.

Changes as of 19 November 2021: the provisional figures for 2021 have been added.

When will new figures be published?
According to regular planning provisional figures for the current year are published in November and the definite figures will follow in March of the following year.

Description topics

Persons
Persons working on the agricultural holding.
Regularly employed
Persons working regularly at the holding, generally on the basis of a permanent contract.
Regularly employed, total
Family labour
Family labour, total
Holder
If the legal personality of the holding is a natural person or a cooperation of natural persons, there is a holder.
If the legal personality of the holding is a legal person there is a manager.
_
The holder is the person on whose account and in whose name the holding is operated and who is legally and economically responsible for the holding, i.e. who takes the economic risks of the business.
_
If there is joint responsibility or management the holder is the person with the largest business responsibility. If all persons have equal responsibility, the eldest is considered holder. In most cases the holder is also the manager.
_
Note: In the agricultural census information on the manager is only available if the holding is a legal person. For the European Farm Structure Survey information on the manager is asked additionally if the holding is a natural person.
Spouse
Spouse of the holder/manager, working regularly at the holding.
Family workers
Family members of the holder/manager, working regularly at the holding.
_
Family members are relatives in the first or second degree (brother, sister, parent, grandparent, child or grandchild), aged 16 years and over.
Non-family labour
Non-family labour, total
Manager
If the legal personality of the holding is a natural person or a cooperation of natural persons, there is a holder.
If the legal personality of the holding is a legal person there is a manager.
_
The manager is the person responsible for the normal daily financial and production routines of running the holding concerned.
_
In the agricultural census information on the manager is only available if the holding is a legal person. This also means that the number of managers represents the number of legal persons.
If the holding is a natural person the holder is in most cases also the manager.
_
For the European Farm Structure Survey information on the manager is asked additionally if the holding is a natural person.
Other persons regularly employed
Persons working regularly at the holding, excluding family workers and
managers.
Not regularly employed
Persons working on a non-regular basis, usually on contracts for a fixed time, for specific work or occasional work.
_
For persons not regularly employed only the number of working days is known, therefore only annual work units (AWU) and the number of holdings are available.
_
In 2003 and from 2005 onwards this includes labour from persons working on the holding but employed by a third party or under mutual-aid arrangements (e.g. labour supplied by agricultural contractors or cooperatives). Third party labour was not surveyed from 2000 to 2002 and in 2004. Unfortunately it cannot be determined whether or not this
labour was included.
Annual work units (AWU)
Annual work units (AWU) of the persons working at the holding.
_
An annual work unit is a full-time equivalent employment, i.e. the total hours worked divided by the average annual hours worked in full-time jobs.
Regularly employed
Persons working regularly on the holding, generally on the basis of a permanent contract.
