Background of the Fiji Agriculture Census Project 1950 1960 1968 1978 1991 2009 • Agriculture plays an important role in the economy of the country in terms of food security, employment creation, increasing foreign exchange earning and contribution to the annual GDP. • Due to the demanding expansion of conventional production-oriented data from public, private and international sector, Government of Fiji through the Ministry of Agriculture requested Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) to assist in the conduct of 2009 census.
  6. 6. Methodology  Earlier Census and National Agriculture Survey used Area Sampling Frame (ASF) for estimation at Provincial at National Level.  A comprehensive List Sampling Frame (LSF) with complete enumeration was expected to provide better estimates with fewer ASF segments.  Target Segment size 1km sq. (100Ha) for all strata.  Smaller Districts with few segments – complete enumeration of all the households – SIS (Small Islands Strategy) 6
  7. 7. 2009 Ag Census  Overview ◦ Total Budget FJ$2.2m – Fiji Government – FJ$1.5m, FAO – FJ$708,000 ◦ Project Duration – Dissemination of Report – 3 Years (2009 - 2011) ◦ Organisation Structure:  FAO Consultants  Census Unit, EP&S Division  Supervisors – Crop Extension, AH&P, Land Use & Quarantine Division  119 Enumerators 7
  8. 8. 2009 Ag Census  Methodology:  Modular Approach ◦ Adopted 3 parts methodology ◦ LSF & SIS farms were fully enumerated with the weight of 1.00 ◦ Remainder of Area were stratified according to estimated Agricultural Intensity – FBoS EAs ◦ Planted forest areas – assigned to a special stratum. ◦ Urban / Pre-Urban Strata and the Non Agriculture Stratum – excluded from sampling process. ◦ Maps and Arial photo from earlier surveys were the bases for the numbering of the grids, identification of EA and Stratum Boundary. 8
