    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.

    In Resolution No. 14/75 on the 1980 World Census of Agriculture, the 18th Session of the FAO Conference held in November 1975, besides urging member nations to carry out their national census of agriculture, requested FAO to (a) take steps to encourage the widest possible participation of countries in the census of agriculture especially in the developing regions; (b) to provide technical assistance to countries to enable them to conduct the census and to process the census data. Earlier, the Seventh Session of the FAO Statistics Advisory Committee of Experts held in March 1975, after reviewing the Programme for the 1980 World Census of Agriculture, recommended the preparation and dissemination of guidelines for use by developing countries on the taking of a census of agriculture, In compliance with these recommendations the FAO Statistics Division has prepared these guidelines as supplement to the Progrannne for the 1980 World Census of·Agriculture, to promote and encourage the participation of all member countries in the World Census. It is hoped that countries taking their censuses within the framework of the FAO Programme for the 1980 World Census of Agriculture will find these guidelines useful. These guidelines contain information based mainly on the experiences of selected international and national agricultural census experts working and/or having worked in the developing countries.
