The Lao Census of Agriculture 2010/11 was the second agricultural census undertaken in the Lao PDR. Since the first in 1998/99, the agricultural sector underwent significant changes. This Census of Agriculture was implemented by the Lao Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry - LMAF (http://www.maf.gov.la/), with support from the Lao Statistics Bureau (http://www.lsb.gov.la/), and collected basic information on crop and livestock production from every household in the Lao PDR, as well as information on village infrastructure. A sample survey module collected detailed data on agricultural production activities from over 40 thousand farm households.

The census data collection was undertaken in March 2011, whereby crop production data on the 2010 wet season and the 2010/11 dry season was collected. Data are available on the Lao Decide platform (http://www.decide.la/en/)
