Farm surveys and analysis

​ABARES has been conducting surveys of agricultural industries since the 1940s. Farm surveys conducted by ABARES provide a wide range of information on the current and historical economic performance of farm business units in the rural sector. This information is used for research and analysis on a range of industry issues of concern to government and industry.
