This data set was provided by United States Department of Agriculture, with the original data coming from the State Statistics Bureau of P. R. China. This statistical data set updates and expands the coverage of an earlier publication -- Agricultural Statistics of the People's Republic of China, 1949-86. The report compiles much of the important agricultural data that China's State Statistical Bureau (SSB) reported for 1949-90.
A total of 297 variables are provided in 10 data groups, which include land use, population, labor force, gross value of agricultural output, agricultural investment, crop production, crop sown area, state procurement, livestock inventory and slaughter, animal product output, input production and use, costs of production, consumption of agricultural commodities, selected retail price indices and mixed average procurement prices for selected agricultural crops, and quantity and value of imports and exports of selected commodities. Data are aggregated at the national level and the provincial level where available.
