Description: The statistics on the finances of agricultural and forestry enterprises replace the agricultural enterprise and income statistics produced from 1973 to 2004 as well as the agricultural income and tax statistics. The new statistics are published only on Statistics Finland’s Internet pages. The first reference year of the statistics is 2005. The statistics describe the economic activity and structure of agricultural and forestry enterprises operating in Finland. The main sources of data for the statistics are tax data on farm enterprises, the Farm Register and a direct statistical survey aimed at farms. Agriculture and forestry are examined separately. The data are classified e.g. by area, production sector and farm size category.
