This dataset presents information from Sugarcane, experimental regional estimates using new data sources and methods, 2020-21 by Statistical Areas Level 2 (SA2s), 2016, from the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS) Edition 2.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) partnered with industry and other stakeholders to co-design methods to produce agriculture statistics using new data sources. Traditionally, agriculture area and production statistics are produced by the ABS through an annual agricultural survey or a five yearly agricultural census which collects information directly from farm businesses. These experimental sugarcane statistics demonstrate that these non-survey data sources can produce accurate and more timely statistics at a level of regional detail normally only available from an agricultural census.

These experimental sugarcane statistics for production, area of harvest and business counts were produced by combining Levy Payers Register administrative data with satellite derived crop mapping. More information on the method and approach can be found here and feedback to further refine it is welcomed via email:

Data points of ‘less than 5’ in the original data have been converted to blank cells as part of the web service production process due to the need for web service data to be integers only, whilst continuing to suppress any values less than 5. Similarly, ‘-‘ entries in the original data which symbolised a null result (i.e. no production detected) have also been converted to a blank cell. The original data containing ‘less than 5’ and ‘-‘ annotations can be accessed here.

Made possible by the Digital Atlas of Australia
The Digital Atlas of Australia is an Australian Government initiative being led by Geoscience Australia. It will bring together trusted datasets from across government in an interactive, secure, and easy-to-use geospatial platform. The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) is working in partnership with Geoscience Australia to establish a set of web services to make ABS data available in the Digital Atlas.
