 Introduction
...
This publication builds on an earlier release by the Statistics and Data Development Branch entitled "2001 Census of Agriculture for Alberta, I.D., M.D., and County Data by Region". In that publication, data were presented by grouping Improvement District, Municipal District and County data for selected farm variables. This latest publication goes a step further in restructuring the same farm variable information with the objective of building individualized Improvement District, Municipal District and County profiles. The data used in this publication was from a special custom run obtained from Statistics Canada, based on the 2001 Census of Agriculture, conducted on May 15, 2001. For more information about the Census of Agriculture, readers are encouraged to visit the Statistics Canada website at: http://www.statcan.gc.ca/

The "Alberta Municipality Profile - 2001 Census of Agriculture" consists of five publications (listed below) which are based on the former five AAFRD agricultural administrative regions (South, Central, North East, North West and Peace). It is important to note that while AAFRD no longer uses the agricultural administrative regions, these have been maintained for the convenience of users to facilitate data comparisons with some of the previous Census years.

Also worth noting, is that data confidentiality (as designated by an "x") at the Municipality level has resulted in some regional totals not adding up to the provincial total due to data suppression.

Users are encouraged to refer to the section on the Census definitions and notes for explanations of terms used in this report. Also, for spatial data interpretation, users are advised to refer to the Alberta map with its regional boundaries, and Alberta Municipalities Classified by Region.
