Data Sources

Statistics are an integral part of the planning for the development of the agriculture sector. On this page you'll find links to various regional and international data sites. 





CARICOM Regional Statistics

The Statistics Sub-programme of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat compiles statistics on the member countries of CARICOM. These data are submitted to the Secretariat by the member states themselves, either by the national statistics offices or the central banks, depending on the nature of the data. Occasionally, in the absence of data from the member states, third party sources would be utilised.

World Bank Statistics

World Bank Open Data provides free and open access to data about development in countries around the globe.


FAOSTAT is the comprehensive database of crop and livestock statistics by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
