Standard Output coefficients from 2013 are used for FBS2017 and FBS2018

To ensure contemporary reporting of results, the classification of farms is based on the most recent standard output (SO) coefficients available and applicable to each survey year. For 2018/19 and 2017/18 results are presented based on 2013 SO coefficients to ensure direct comparability between the most recent years of results. Results for 2016/17 and earlier are based on 2010 or earlier SO coefficients. Further information about the Farm Business Survey can be found at:
