Methodological aspects

Des de l'any 2000 s'han de presentar els Comptes Econòmics de l'Agricultura (CEA) de Catalunya en el marc de la metodologia del Sistema Europeu de Comptes Econòmics Integrats (SEC 1995 fins el 2013 i SEC 2010 a partir del 2014 inclòs) de l'Oficina Estadística de les Comunitats Europees (EUROSTAT).

The production value is at basic prices, and is obtained as the result of adding subsidies to the price received by the producer of the product free of tax. This means that part of the operations subsidies in the previous methodology are included in the final agriculture production value (at basic prices), and the remainder is assigned to other subsidies.
