Compared with 2013, EU28 real agricultural income per worker has decreased by 1.7% in 2014 according to first estimates issued by Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union. These estimates are based on data supplied by the national authorities in the EU28 Member States.
Between 2005 and 2014, EU28 real agricultural income per worker is estimated to have increased by 34.4%, while agricultural labour input fell by 24.6%.
The decrease of real agricultural income per worker in 2014 is the result of a fall in real agricultural income (-4.0%), partly compensated by a reduction in agricultural labour input (-2.3%). The decrease in EU28 real agricultural income is mainly the result of a fall in the value of crop output (-6.0%) and animal output (-0.9%), combined with a decrease in real terms for input costs (-3.6%).
