    Much of the required information for the agricultural sector, such as crop production, livestock inventories, and basic social and economic data, is obtained through periodic national, multi-purpose agricultural data collection programmes called "Current Agricultural Surveys". This manual describes the sample design, organization and implementation procedures for these current agricultural surveys using multiple frame probability sampling methods, which is a new methodology currently being adopted by many countries around the world. Specific case studies will be presented in Volume II. This handbook introduces the subject and describes the practical aspects of list and area frame construction and sample selection methods while recognizing the resource and specialized staff constraints faced by developing countries.

    The World Programme for the Census of Agriculture 2010 (WCA 2010) is intended to assist countries in the conduct of their national census of agriculture. It provides guidance on the integrated system approach to agricultural censuses and surveys and recommends, for the first time, a modular approach to the census of agriculture with the core census module being conducted on a complete enumeration basis and the supplementary modules being conducted on a sample basis. The publicati on provides a detailed list of items suitable for inclusion in the national agricultural census programme as well as definitions, concepts and standards to be adopted. For the first time, it is recommended to collect additional data at the community level to examine the infrastructure and services available to holdings at this level. It discusses the need for coordination between the census of agriculture and the census of population and housing and presents guidelines on conduct ing the agricultural census and the aquacultural census as a single field operation, where this is considered advantageous. It also discusses widening the coverage of the census of agriculture to include households that are non-agricultural producers to provide a more complete socio-economic picture, particularly of rural communities.
