The department’s main tasks are data collection, preparation of statistics and performance of economic analyses for use in economic counselling, education, research, public management and policy-making.
The survey of account statistics for agriculture and forestry is aimed at presenting economic results from agriculture, forestry and other gainful activities for family-run farms. The survey is based on data from farms of different sizes, with various productions and a geographical spread.
Both data and expertise established through the survey together with general business economics competence gives a foundation for economic investigations and research tasks. We have clients in both private enterprises and public sector. Among others, the department’s project portfolio includes topics like:
- Economic analyses of various livestock- and plant-productions and other gainful activities.
- Value creation in agriculture.
- Various agriculture economics analyses on both regional and national level.
Our staff is located at NIBIO’s offices in Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim and Bodø.
