Detailed data on livestock production in 2018 are published in the SiStat Database.
Final data mostly do not differ essentially from provisional data published on 14 May 2019 in the First Releas. Differences regarding data are mainly due to the fact that we used final external trade data.
In the SiStat Database we are publishing for the first time the data on hen’s eggs for consumption. At the same time we revised the data on the number of laying hens and hen’s eggs for 2013 as we discovered a small computing error in preparing the data for 2013. We apologise for any inconvenience.
The number of laying hens for eggs for consumption is estimated on the basis of the data on the number of hens on the reference date (1 December), while the number of eggs for consumption refers to the period from 1 December of the previous year to 30 November of the reference year, so one has to be careful in further use of these data. The methodology for calculation follows the recommended Eurostat methodology.
