Description

The survey investigates information on animal farming inventories and livestock products, having the municipality as the data collection unit.

The Municipal Livestock Production Survey - PPM began in the Ministry of Agriculture in 1945. The data were raised by the IBGE Data Collection Network and the Ministry of Agriculture developed the questionnaires, compiled the survey, edited it and disclosed the results. With Decree no. 73,482, of January 17, 1974, the IBGE became in charge of all the phases of the survey from that date onward, as well as of the other statistical surveys related to the agricultural sector. Nevertheless, the statistics related to the years of 1971 and 1972 are not available, since they were not released by the Ministry. Up to 1980, the variables investigated were, basically, the amount of animals existing on December 31, the output of the major primary products of livestock and the average annual unit price The survey questionnaire had its scope improved in 1981 and 1989. In addition to other improvements in the questionnaire in 2013, the output of aquaculture began to be investigated, as a result of an agreement between the IBGE and the Ministry of Fishing and Aquaculture. The production of fish, shrimp and shellfish, fingerlings, shrimp larvae and shellfish seeds, as well as the value of the production of other animals (frogs, alligators, etc.) were then introduced in the PPM.

The survey provides information on the livestock inventories existing in the municipality on the reference date of the survey, as well as on the production of animal origin and the value of the production during the reference year. The inventories include cattle, pigs and hogs, pig matrices, poultry, hens, quails, horses, buffaloes, goats and sheep. The production of animal origin, on turn, includes the output of milk, hen eggs, quail eggs, honey, greasy wool and cocoons of silkworm; the amount of milked cows and sheared sheep; and aquaculture, which includes fish farming, shrimp farming and malacoculture.

The periodicity of the survey is annual. The geographic coverage is national, with results released for Brazil, Major Regions, Federation Units, Mesoregions, Microregions and Municipalities.
