Food Consumption and Food S= ecurity Statistics Derived from Household Surveys
Ongoing methodological work:
=E2=80=A2 Methodological work is focu= sed not only on the estimation of food deprivation new FAO methodology to a= ssess undernourishment but also on the assessment of food consumption quali= ty. This methodology will be shared with national statistical organizations= to estimate food deprivation as defined by the Millennium Development Goal= s indicator number 1.9 at national and sub-national levels for targeting fo= od insecure population groups.
=E2=80=A2 Technical assistance is bein= g provided through FAO's capacity building activities projects.
Prior= ity objectives:
=E2=80=A2 Priority has been given to the preparation = of new methodological materials for implementing data processing and statis= tical analysis modules using computing statistical packages
=E2=80=A2= Updated information on the web page on capacity building activities on foo= d consumption and security statistics, in particular as part of the Househo= ld Survey Programme:
2.4.1 Agriculture, forestry= , fisheries
Ongoing methodological work:
=E2=80=A2 FAO has be= en developing, in cooperation with development partners, developed and deve= loping countries, a Global Strategy to Improve Agricultural and Rural Stati= stics. The Global Strategy will be available in early 2010.
=E2=80=A2= FAO will continue to concentrate on the revamping of FAOSTAT during 2010.<= /p>=20
=E2=80=A2 Additional subject= specific statistical modules of data, expanded coverage, improve the quali= ty and timeliness of disseminated statistics.
=E2=80=A2 Emphasis will= be placed on the implementation of the Global Strategy to Improve Agricult= ural and Rural Statistics, especially capacity building.
=E2=80=A2 Re= view of the major items included in the Agricultural Resources Domain for m= achinery, pesticides, labour and gender.
New work to be undertaken in 2010:
=E2=80=A2 FAO = will develop, in cooperation with development partners, developing and deve= loped countries, an Implementation Plan of the Global Strategy to Improve A= gricultural and Rural Statistics.

Dissemination and coordination of data collection
= Ongoing work:
The dissemination programme = for food and agriculture statistics is primarily via the FAOSTAT database a= vailable at (htt= p://faostat.fao.org). The FAO Statistical Yearbook consolidates FAO's a= griculture, forestry and fishery statistics.
=E2=80=A2 Work will cont= inue on the development of metadata on crops and livestock as well as price= s and resources, which underlies the data disseminated by FAOSTAT.
= =E2=80=A2 Major work continues on upgrading and developing the Statistics D= ivision's webpage www.fao.org/statistics/
Publication of new undernour= ished estimates and FAOSTAT data series.
=E2=80=A2 Data collection, evaluati= on, analyses and dissemination fishery related information - capture fisher= ies production, aquaculture production, commodities and trade, disposition,= food-consumption of fishery products, fishers and fleets.
=E2=80=A2 = Annual release of FAO Yearbook-Fishery Statistics for Capture Fisheries pro= duction, Aquaculture Production, Commodities and Apparent Consumption.
=E2=80=A2 On-line dissemination of statistics through FIGIS (Fisheries Gl= obal Information System, http://www.fao.org/fishery/statistics/en) to= gether with various software for database handling, data collection and ana= lyses. Data and software are also available as complementary CD version. Su= bstantial update of the statistics dissemination software (FishStat) is in = process since 2009.
=E2=80=A2 On-line dissemination of statistical gu= idelines, standards, and classifications relevant to fisheries and aquacult= ure, together with fisheries and stock status information provided from int= ernational and regional fisheries bodies through partnership arrangement of= FIRMS (Fisheries Resources Monitoring System).
=E2=80=A2 Technical a= ssistance for fishery and aquaculture data collection and monitoring system= development along the line with the Strategy for Improving Information on = Status and Trends of Capture Fisheries (Strategy-STF) and Strategy and Outl= ine Plan for Improving Information on Status and Trends of Aquaculture (Str= ategy-STA).
=E2=80=A2 Continued improvemen= t of the quality and timeliness of FAO-collated fishery statistics and info= rmation. Specific emphasis of this year includes re-construction of fleet s= tatistics, re-designing capture and aquaculture production, and integration= of catch statistics maintained by Regional Fishery Bodies in unified forma= t.
=E2=80=A2 Coordination to enhance and update global standards for = terminology, data requirement, and guideline for the purpose of monitoring = of and supporting management for aquaculture and capture fishery sectors. =E2=80=A2 Promotion of the implementation of Strategy-STF and Strategy= -STA to strengthen monitoring and data collection capacity especially in Af= rica, Asia, and to a lesser extent in the Caribbean and South America, and = some countries in East Europe.

=E2=80=A2 The agricultural price domain was redesi= gned with a new methodological database framework.
=E2=80=A2 The new = domain will comprise new price concepts (e.g. consumer prices) which will l= ink different price datasets (e.g. input prices, output prices, trade unit = values) and will include new derived indicators and investigation of value-= chains in agriculture.
= =E2=80=A2 As part of the FAOSTAT updating, CountrySTAT will incorporate GAU= L codes (Global Administrative Unit Layer) into various modules for users i= nterested in working with subnational data.

Essential data series
The FAO Statistical Yearbook consolidates FAO's agriculture, forestry an= d fishery statistics. Maintenance and updating the essential data series on= demographic estimates and projections, macroeconomic aggregates and prices= received by farmers, agricultural production and trade. Other time series,= which will be updated, pertain to land use, farm machinery, fertilizer and= pesticides statistics, estimates of number of undernourished and other eco= nomic data.=20
FAO has been cooperating closely with the UN Expert Group and Technical = Subgroup on International Economic and Social Classifications and taking th= e lead in the work on classifications in agriculture by contributing its pr= oposal for ISIC Rev 4.0 and CPC revisions in the area of crop, animal, fish= ery and forestry production and products; the proposal has been adopted for= inclusion in the revision. FAO will continue its efforts of building up a = satellite account/alternate aggregates for agricultural and rural developme= nt as well as work on related areas within classifications of time use, occ= upation/work, SITC and resources.=20
World Census of Agriculture 2010
The FAO World programme for the Census of Agriculture 2010, providing gu= idelines for national agricultural censuses to be conducted in the decade 2= 006 - 2015 have been prepared and published. FAO has worked closely with UN= ECE in developing the relationship between the population and housing censu= s and the agricultural census so that a common approach is included in both= the Eurostat/ECE guidelines on Population and Housing Censuses and the FAO= Programme. In the next two years, priority will be given to preparing a me= thodological review of the 2000 agricultural census programme and providing= greater information on national agricultural census methodologies on the i= nternet.=20
