Facts & Figures
Statistics underpin many aspects of agriculture. Publications such as the Tasmanian Agri-Food ScoreCard present a snapshot of agricultural industries and enable assessment of their value to the Tasmanian economy. Analysis of employment changes within the agricultural sector helps to reveal areas of growth and enables forecasting of labour needs. Management of regulated crops and wildlife numbers are also informed by statistics.
