Первые результаты контроля данных сельскохозяйственной микропереписи 2021 года с использованием средств спутникового мониторинга
In August 2021 an agricultural micro-census was carried out in Russia. A Technology of agricultural micro-census data control using satellite monitoring tools was developed for verification of statistical information about agricultural land (arable land, fallow land, hayfields and pastures) area. The article provides brief information about the components of the Technology, the phases of its creation and application. The first results of 2021 micro-census data control, the main reasons of data discrepancy and examples of possible errors in the micro-census data are discussed. In general, the developed Technology showed the effectiveness for verification of statistical data about the area of arable land and total crop area. So, the developed instrument can be used for these characteristics control in the frame of subsequent all-Russian agricultural censuses and annual federal statistical observations.
