ready Food and Agriculture Microdata Catalogue


General Information
The Food and Agriculture Microdata (FAM) Catalogue provides an inventory of datasets collected through farm and household surveys which contain information related to agriculture, food security, and nutrition. The FAM catalogue is populated by datasets which are collected directly by FAO and datasets whose collection are supported in some way by FAO. Our aim is to be a one-stop-shop containing metadata on all agricultural censuses and surveys which are publically available as well as provide direct access and/or links to the microdata. FAM is continuously updated as new datasets from FAO and member countries become available. Organizations which collect relevant data are also highly encouraged to submit datasets for dissemination through FAM.
