The World Programme for the Census of Agriculture 2010 (WCA 2010) is intended to assist countries in the conduct of their national census of agriculture. It provides guidance on the integrated system approach to agricultural censuses and surveys and recommends, for the first time, a modular approach to the census of agriculture with the core census module being conducted on a complete enumeration basis and the supplementary modules being conducted on a sample basis. The publication provides a detailed list of items suitable for inclusion in the national agricultural census programme as well as definitions, concepts and standards to be adopted.
