| ||Alberta Agriculture and Forestry (AF) has just released the Agriculture Statistics Yearbook 2014.
“The yearbook is compiled and serves as a reference document and a principal source of information for users of statistics on the Alberta agri-food industry,” says Roy Larsen, senior statistician, AF, Edmonton. “The tables and charts included in the publication provide both a current and historical perspective.”
Individual sections of the yearbook contain information on identifiable industry sectors such as crops, livestock and food and beverages, and industry measures and indicators such as farm income, agri-food exports, economic indicators and the Census of Agriculture.
“Data is compiled from a variety of sources, with the majority produced by the agriculture division of Statistics Canada in collaboration with AF,” says Larsen. “However, data also comes from Agriculture and Agri-food Canada, as well as other federal and provincial departments and agencies who provided data for inclusion in this publication. Special appreciation is also extended to all agricultural producers and processors who responded to our surveys or supplied other information to surveys conducted by Statistics Canada.”
The Agriculture Statistics Yearbook 2014 is available as a free downloadable .pdf on AF’s website.
