For the 18th FiBL survey on organic agriculture worldwide, data on organic agriculture were available for 179 countries. Since 1999, when the data collection started, at that time carried out by the German-based Foundation Ecology and Agriculture (SÖL), the number of countries included has more than doubled. The survey is funded by the Swiss State Secretariat of Economic Affairs (SECO), the International Trade Centre (ITC), and NürnbergMesse, the organizers of the Biofach trade fair. In the following article, the data collection, processing, and publication process are described. This description follows the structure of the reference metadata provided by Eurostat for its data
collection on organic agriculture covering the European Union, the EFTA countries and the EU candidate countries (Eurostat 2016).
