According to the regulation 571/88 from the European Council and Parliament the EU Member States must realize 3 farm structural surveys (1993, 1995, and 1997) between two successive agriculture censuses.
From 1989, the 1993, 1995 and 1997 farm surveys took place.

- to provide data about the evolution of the agricultural production methods;
- to characterize farm labour force and agricultural population;
- to obtain data on farm forest.
This publication contains a comparison to the European agriculture referred to 1995.
