Why is the Handbook being produced?
  • Strong and increasing policy interest in rural
    development among rich and poor countries

  • Consolidating existing work
  • Highlighting differences occur between
    international organisations

Roles of a Handbook (BH)
  • Explanatory outline context of statistics and
    main issues to be tackled
  • Indicative establish blue print of good
    practice
  • Prescriptive in areas where clear guidance can
    be given (but not a Manual like SNA93)
  • Supportive to people working in this area of
    statistics (often in isolation)

10
Who is it intended for?
  • To assist compilers of relevant statistics
  • Wide range of other users of rural development
    statistics and agricultural household income
    measures

11
Role of statistics
  • Policy driven problem analysis and need
    identification, monitoring and evaluation
  • Affected by quality relevance, timeliness,
    clearly defined, easily interpreted, sensitive to
    policy action etc.
  • Often depend on existing data sources
  • Compromises inevitable

12
Rural development policy
  • Different but overlapping issues among OECD and
    developing countries
  • Policy objectives include
  • Population stability
  • Diversified industry base (beyond agriculture)
  • Accessibility and availability of services
  • Good physical and mental health
  • Participatory decision-making

13
Why focus on agricultural household income and
wealth?
  • Historically important rural sector, though now
    much reduced in many countries
  • Still major controllers of land use
    (environmental importance)
  • Often seen as engine for rural development
  • Rural development policy often rooted in
    agricultural policy
  • Target group for agricultural policy
  • Incomes are a particular focus
