Economic Overview of Farm Incomes - ARCHIVED
This series of 11 bulletins produced jointly by Statistics Canada and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada offers readers an analytical and illustrative presentation of farm financial data. Data from Revenue Canada taxation of unincorporated and incorporated farms and other agricultural surveys provide the statistical basis for these bulletins. Eight of these bulletins feature a specific farm type providing analysis on such key variables as revenues and expenses, net operating income and net operating margins. Physical characteristics such as crop areas and livestock inventory numbers as well as some distributional data are presented. The first bulletin of this series provides an overview of all farm types combined. The two remaining bulletins present sources and levels of off-farm income for farm operators and farm families for selected farm types. Depending on the variables, the discussion is presented by province or by revenue class. Comparisons of financial performance are also made for selected variables. Tables and graphs support the analytical texts.
