Data collection and statistical processing
Survey method and data source
Data on use of fertilizers and data on liming of soil are obtained by conducting a sample survey according to CSB statistical report form 2-ls "Crop production".
Economically active agricultural holdings.
Sample has been formed as stratified simple random sampling. Holdings are stratified by their location (NUTS 3), type of farming and economic size.
Extrapolation of the data on the surveyed holdings to all agricultural holdings is based on the number of similar holdings represented by sampled holdings as well as actual response rate in each of the survey territories.
Data are collected in compliance with:
- Classification of the Administrative Territories and Territorial Units of the Republic of Latvia (CATTU);
- Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics (NUTS).
