Effects of the Mid Term Review on the statistics on farm labour force statistics
The statistics in this report is based on the Swedish Farm register and a postal questionnaire sent to a sample of agricultural holdings. The Swedish Farm register is updated by using postal questionnaires and administrative sources as the register on the farmers applications for area based subsidies. In 2005 the Mid Term review was implemented in Sweden. As a consequence of the new agricultural policy the number of applications for area based subsidies increased considerably. A large part of the new applications could not be linked to existing holdings in the Farm register and this lead to an increase in the number of holdings in the Farm register. Due to the increase in the number of holdings, the estimated number of occupied persons within the Swedish agriculture 2005 increased compared to 2003. These increases do not mean a correspondingly change in the actual structure of the agricultural sector.
One third of the occupied persons within the Swedish agriculture are women
The number of occupied persons within the Swedish agriculture was 173 884 in 2005. This corresponds to an increase with 5 900 persons, or 3,5 %, compared to 2003 when the last comparable survey was conducted. About one third of the occupied persons were women. In total 154 100, or 89 % persons were occupied on a regular basis while 19 600, or 11 %, were working on a non-regular basis.
Of the total number of occupied persons within agriculture in 2005 there were 151 500, or 87 %, at holdings which were run by private persons. On these holdings there were 70 700 holders, of which 8 700 or 12 % were women, 62 000 persons were family members of the holder.
The total number of occupied person at holdings which were run by legal person was 22 400.
