Given that the Census of Agriculture will provide information on producers / agriculture holdings in Kosovo, dealing with agricultural activities as their primary or secondary activity, the Pilot- Census (Pilot-Project) aims to test the methodology that will be applied in November 2013, when will commence the Agriculture Census.
Meanwhile, this Agriculture Pilot-Census covers all municipalities of the Republic of Kosovo and it will use the methods, based on samples, in which the households have been selected. In each municipality have been selected two enumeration areas (EA) in rural areas and one EA in urban areas. While within selected enumeration in rural areas, every third household has been selected, as the sample.
By means of Agriculture Census, ASK provides reliable statistical information necessary for the planning and implementation of agricultural policies and other policies, as well as for scientific researches.
Agriculture Census also establishes a database with agriculture holdings and statistical farm register.
The information gathered during the Census is confidential and protected by law. In accordance with the provisions of the Law on Official Statistics of the Republic of Kosovo and the Law on Protection of Personal Data, the Agriculture Census preserves complete confidentiality of individual data of agriculture holdings.
