Revisions to June 2017 Agricultural Census published figures (Published in the 2018 Census results, 9th October 2018)

There were six revisions made to the 2017 census results, as part of the 2018 publication spreadsheet. The area of vegetables for human consumption was reduced by one per cent, the area of rough grazing was reduced by two per cent, and the area of other land was changed by six per cent. These resulted in a three per cent reduction in the total area of agricultural land. The breakdown of the sheep numbers was revised, with the total sheep numbers unchanged.

There were also a number of very small changes due to the exclusion of some very small domestic holdings.

Corrections to June 2010 and June 2011 Agricultural Census published figures

The June 2012 Scottish Agricultural Census contains corrections to the 2010 and 2011 figures for camelids. This was owing to incorrect information submitted on census forms. The 2010 figure has been changed from 557 to 542 while the 2011 figure has been changed from 793 to 704. These corrections are incorporated into Table 7 of the publication 'Results from the June 2012 Scottish Agricultural Census':

The release of the December 2006 Agricultural Survey results contains minor revisions for the years 2003, 2004 and 2005.
