The 2017 edition of the statistical book 'Agriculture, forestry and fishery statistics' includes a broad range of data to help assess developments related to agriculture, forestry and fishery policies as well as their impact on the environment.
This edition shows, for instance, that women working in agriculture accounted for 35% of the total working population in the European Union in 2016. Women made up more than 40 % of the agricultural workforce in five Member States, namely Austria (45 %), Romania (43 %) Poland, Greece and Slovenia (41 % in each of three countries).
