The statistical part of this study was based upon groups of data which could be taken from 17,735 farm accounts made by the Cooperative Central Farm Accountant in Friesland in the period 1923-40 initially for 527 (in 1923) and finally for 1452 farms (in 1940) per year. The analysis was by the Hollerith system.
The results of the studies led to a discussion of aspects of farming in the period 1923-40, of structural differences between types of farming in this period and of differences in organization and in financial results between farms of similar type.
An outline was given of what had to be done to make comparisons of farm efficiency generally accepted in advisory services and in practical farming.
