Data Feature

We adopt the index number approach and base it on the growth accounting framework (Jorgenson, 1986). The approach is developed based on a strand of literature including but not restrict to Ball (1997), Ball et al. (2001, 2010), Sheng et al. (2015), Ball et al. (2008, 2018, 2020) and among others. We then apply the approach to construct the production account for agriculture consistently across 18 out of 26 OECD countries, including 15 EU countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom) and the United States, Canada and Australia and measure and compare the relative levels of agricultural TFP for those countries for the period of 1973-2018.

The database provide the measures of purchasing power parities (PPP) for agricultural inputs and outputs, and thus allow comparison of relative levels of agricultural input, output and TFP across countries.

Depending on the request, we also provide the data on detailed agricultural outputs and inputs, which include
1)  Price and quantity indexes for commodity-level agricultural output: cereals, oil crops, cotton, sugar, other cash crops, vegetable and melons, fruits and nuts, animal meat, animal products;
­2)  Capital stock and capital service flows: building and structures, transportation vehicle and other machinery, biology capital and/or inventory;
3)  Land stock and land service flows (quality adjusted): Marginal contribution of 23 land attributes to land prices;
4)  Price and quantity of labor input: hired workers, self-employed (non-paid labor);
5)  Price and quantity of major intermediate inputs: electricity, fuel and lubricant, pesticides, fertilizers
6)  Other purchased inputs: feed and seed..
