An Analysis of Farm Structures & Incomes

There has been much discussion on farm incomes in recent months. The debate on farm incomes, their levels and how they should be measured has revealed a considerable amount of uncertainty and confusion. This presentation outlines the current structure of Irish farms and attempts to clarify how farm incomes are measured and more importantly show the wide variation that exists within the overall "average" national farm income figure. The input of off-farm income to farm household income is also examined. The principal sources of data used are the Teagasc National Farm Survey and CSO agricultural income data.
