Dataset: Australian Agricultural Environments (AAE) 2012


18 Australian Agricultural Environments (AAEs) developed by ABARES to stratify survey collection and analysis for the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Land Management Practices Survey (LaMPS). The ABS conducted the LaMPS to support Common Practices Assessments for the Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI). The 18 AAEs differentiate broad environmental, land use and land management patterns across Australia’s agricultural landscapes. The regionalisation combines ABS statistical units with published agro-ecological regions. The AAEs have been specifically developed to stratify data collection and analysis for the LaMPS and users of this regional classification should be aware of the limitations and currency of the underlying information when using these regional boundaries.
