This table provides metadata for the actual indicator available from UK statistics closest to the corresponding global SDG indicator. Please note that even when the global SDG indicator is fully available from UK statistics, this table should be consulted for information on national methodology and other UK-specific metadata information.
Total factor and labour productivity of the United Kingdom agriculture industry
Total factor productivity is a key measure of the economic performance of agriculture and an important driver of farm incomes. It represents how efficiently the agricultural industry uses the resources that are available to turn inputs into outputs.
|Unit of measurement||
All outputs - the volume of all outputs sold off the farm. This excludes transactions within the industry.
All inputs - the volume of goods and services purchased and consumed. This excludes transactions within the industry.
Total factor productivity - how efficiently all inputs are turned into outputs. Derived by dividing all outputs by all inputs.
Partial productivity (part of the productivity disaggregation) - partial productivity shows the impact key inputs have on productivity. It measures total outputs against a part of the inputs and shows how efficiently productivity by intermediate consumption, capital consumption, labour or land is transformed into outputs. Derived by dividing all outputs by each factor.
Productivity, Outputs, Inputs
No calculations were performed in the data acquisition of this indicator as appropriate data was readily available in the final format specified by this indicator.
Outputs and inputs are adjusted for quality by weighting the volumes by price.
Potato prices and yield information were previously obtained from the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) who stopped producing data midway through in 2021. For 2022, yields have been estimated based on input from sector representatives, devolved administrations and coverage of the sector in the farming press.
This indicator is being used as an approximation of the UN SDG Indicator. Where possible, we will work to identify or develop UK data to meet the global indicator specification. This indicator has been identified in collaboration with topic experts.
