Data Builder

Data builder

FBS data builder is a specialist interactive system for professionals and researchers. It allows direct interrogation of Farm Business Survey (FBS) data to construct user defined tables.

Request Data

The statistics in FBS data builder are periodically updated in accordance with the latest revisions to the FBS calculated variables (currently version 71b). The figures from some variables may thus be subject to revised calculations from time to time, most recently JUNE 2017.

If you are a new user, you are strongly urged to go first to the User Guide which allows you to browse through some pre-specified tables first to learn how the system works.  Alternatively, go straight to Request data, or see one of the Top Queries below.

Quick Guide

Please note that some of these tables are also published elsewhere. For example in the Defra publication 'Farm Accounts in England', and 'Region Reports' (above)


Many users are interested in county level data, even though the data for 'Regions' (or better still 'FADN Regions') is more extensive and reliable, so we publish available data at County data
