The data series presented here measures average income of small-scale food producers, PPP (constant 2011 international $).
This data series contributes to the measurement of SDG Indicator 2.3.2, classified as Tier II in September 2018, which is officially defined as follows:
SDG indicator 2.3.2 measures income from on-farm production activities, which is related to the production of food and agricultural products. This includes income from crop production, livestock production, fisheries and aquaculture production, and from forestry production. The indicator is computed as annual income.
According to Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) -- the Custodian Agency for this indicator -- the rationale behind this indicator can be summarised as follows:
The 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda has emphasized the importance of enhancing income of small-scale food producers, as these producers play an important role in the global production of food. The indicator monitors progress in this area, where the target is to double income by year 2030. The enhancement of income of small-scale production units also has implications on poverty reduction, as small-scale food producers are often poor, and are frequently found to be close to subsistence conditions.
