This survey has been compiled using data collected from the 2011-12 Land Management Practices Survey (LaMPS). The LaMPS aims to collect information on agricultural land management practices used on Australian farms. Estimates from the survey will be used by departments of agriculture, other government agencies, industry groups and the wider community in developing and implementing policies and programs on agricultural land management practices.

A minimum cut-off of $5,000 was applied to determine whether an agricultural business was in-scope for the survey. The measure of size was based on the ABS' Estimated Value of Agricultural Operations (EVAO) or a derived value based on Business Activity Statement (BAS) turnover.

All respondents are treated equally and all collections are despatched and processed in a comparable manner. ABS Sample and Frame Maintence Procedures were performed on this survey to identifiy and resolve duplicate records and businesses deemed out of scope. All ABS collections have a level of non response which is accounted for by methodologically endorsed estimation and imputation survey processes. Additionally, investigations are undertaken into sub-populations within the frame to address suspected areas of undercoverage. Where possible estimates are confronted against independant data sources for validity.

The 2011-12 LaMPSy was a stratified random sample survey of approximately 55,000 agricultural businesses. This sample was selected from an in-scope population of approximately 153,000 agricultural businesses. Sample stratification, based on unit size, industry and geographic location, was used to determine the weight of sample units. The sample also includes a completely enumerated (CE) sector of about 3,000 agricultural businesses. The businesses in the CE sector have a weight of 1.
