Since 1980/81, the Central Statistical Agency has conducted over 30 annual agricultural sample surveys and one agricultural sample census. As the agricultural sector is main economic sector of the country, the annually conducted agriculture sample surveys have been aiming at providing statistical information on the agricultural situation of the country that will serve as inputs for assessing, monitoring and evaluating the sector’s performance both of a particular season as well as the private peasant and commercial farms and over time. Although statistical reports of the survey results have been compiled and disseminated annually for each survey item, the Agency finds it very useful to prepare this abstract to data users mainly policy makers which consist of a three years time series data, i.e., 2008/09 – 2010/11 which will serve as inputs to users to assess the sector’s performance over the last three consecutive years. The principal data that were collected were related to crop area and production, agricultural inputs utilization, land use and livestock characteristics at country, regional and zonal levels. The annual surveys covered the sedentary population of the entire country. The data compiled for crop area and production includes both the private peasant holdings and the large and medium scale (commercial) farms of both Meher and Belg seasons. Data were elicited from more than about 66,000 agricultural households, 2,230 commercial farms and from over 2,200 Enumeration Areas.
