Summary Tables on Estimates of Support to Agriculture

Part II of the Monitoring and Evaluation provides detailed background information on agricultural policies of each OECD country using a standard format. The main agricultural policy instruments are described, followed by developments in domestic agricultural policies and trade policy during 2002. An overall evaluation, which includes a summary of changes in the level and composition of support to agriculture, concludes each country chapter. The analysis is complemented in Part III with a standard set of Summary Tables on estimates of support to agriculture for OECD and each OECD member country. These tables include the standard indicators of support to agriculture used in OECD analysis: the Producer Support Estimate (PSE), the Consumer Support Estimate (CSE), the General Services Support Estimate (GSSE) and the Total Support Estimate (TSE) as well as the derived indicators such as the Producer and Consumer Nominal Protection Coefficient (NPC) and Nominal Assistance Coefficient (NAC)
