2.1. Data description

Annual crop statistics provide data on the area under main arable crops, vegetables and permanent crops and production and yield levels.  The statistics are collected from  a wide variety of sources: surveys, administrative sources, experts opinion's registries (e.g. vineyard registry0 and other data providers. The data collection covers early estimates (before the harvest) and the final data. Data for Greece are collected at all level of regional aggregation (NUTS1,2,3) with the lowest level being NUTS-3 - prefecture.

2.2. Classification system

Hierarchical crop classification system

2.3. Coverage - sector

Growing of non-perennial crops, perennial crops and plant propagation (NACE A01.1-01.3)

2.4. Statistical concepts and definitions

See: Annual crop statistics Handbook

2.5. Statistical unit

Utilised agricultural area cultivated by an agricultural holding.

2.6. Statistical population

Additional comments

Data are obtained primarily from the agencies located in the regional divisions of the country. They are based on the premise of the opinions of experts in the agricultural sectors. To be more precise, these include local agriculturists, cooperatives, local farmers, etc.  These data are cross-checked.

Our department collects data from regional administrative divisions, under the direct supervision of the local agriculturist, which cooperate with cooperatives, other governmental agencies and local farmers. These data are cross-checked with data from the Greek Payment Agency, the Hellenic Statistical Authority and other departments of the Ministry of Rural Development & Foods. 

Nevertheless, it should be noted, that there are cases in which the agencies in the administrative divisions do not sent the relevant data in time or do not respond at all. However, this constitutes a limited number of the total agencies (less than 10%), which usually do not carry a significant weight in the data at the national level. In this instance, we take into account the existing trend based on data of the previous years from the aforementioned agencies.

If there were delays, what were the reasons?

There are cases in which the agencies in the administrative divisions do not sent the relevant data in time or do not respond at all. However, this constitutes a limited number of the total agencies (less than 10%), which usually do not carry a significant weight in the data at the national level. In this instance, we take into account the existing trend based on data of the previous years from the aforementioned agencies. 

Our intention is the improvement in both the quality of data and punctuality in the transmission of the datasets. To that end we work closely with the Hellenic Statistical Authority.   

With respect improvements in timeliness, our department is in close contact with the regional administrative divisions and provides specific guidelines to and detailed information whenever this is necessary.

If other, which?

The cost is relatively low, since the data are received from the regional administrative units of the country. 
Guidelines and explanations related to the data required by the Reg. 543/2009 were sent to the regional administrative units of the country.
