In 16 AGRICULTURAL SURVEY METHODS 2005 the European Environmental Agency, the Joint Research Centre, Eurostat and the Directorate-General for Environment agreed to work together on the development of data centres on environmental and related issues. g. on land use, forests, and water). The objective of each data centre is to function as a portal for all the available information in that specific field and to create a virtual knowledge centre. The recent EU communication on the Shared Environmental Information System (SEIS) even goes a step further, at both European and member state level, in promoting the enhancement of the exchange of available data sources, avoidance of overlapping data collection methods and the use of administrative sources and non-official statistics to supplement official statistics.

This method is considered to deliver an important contribution to reducing the response burden. In opposition to this development, however, is the increased pressure to add new variables and items to the questionnaire. These new demands stem from the new developments mentioned above – production methods, water usage, etc. For the EU countries, the design and basis content of the FSS is regulated by European law. For many member states, the survey instrument is an ideal tool to which can be added some country-specific questions.

One could also surmise that changes in response rates are directly tied to the changing face of agriculture. In the EU, the experiences with the FSS are similar, with member states reporting increasing problems with response rates. This is the most cited reason for not wanting to increase the number of variables to be collected. Some countries have addressed the problem by making response a legal obligation, but most have decided that this is an inappropriate solution. Perhaps the most common approach is to try to make use of administrative sources, making the respondents aware that data are collected only where it is really necessary.
