Agricultural land prices 2016

Before the accession to the EU, Swedish statistics on agricultural land prices and rents were not calculated or published on a regular basis. In the EU this kind of statistics have been provided by most Member States to Eurostat each year since 1973. Since the accession to the EU in 1995, Sweden is providing Eurostat with annual statistics on agricultural land prices and rents.

Estimations of agricultural land prices are based on information, collected by Statistics Sweden, from sales of whole or parts of agricultural estates and information from the register of assessed values for real estates. However, it should be mentioned that in Sweden rather few sales of exclusively agricultural land are performed each year. Most sales of whole or parts of agricultural estates also include buildings and other kinds of land. The method used takes into account these circumstances in order to eliminate the value of buildings and other kinds of land by using the assessed values to determine the proportion of the agricultural land value of the total selling price.
