Agricultural Census in Northern Ireland

The Agricultural Census is conducted in June of each year. Data is collected on crop areas, livestock numbers and farm labour. Outputs include time series data and frequency distributions. Results are presented at regional and sub-regional level.

Administrative date is used from the APHIS cattle tracing system, the Northern Ireland Bird Register Update and the Annual Inventory of Pigs – all complete censuses.

Interactive maps showing the distribution of agricultural enterprises based on the Agricultural Census in Northern Ireland data can be accessed on the NINIS website.
