This report explores the declining numbers of young farmers in Australian agriculture, and is based upon a time series analysis of Australian Population Census data for the period 1976 to 2011. The report is targeted at anyone interested in the changing demographic structure of Australian farming and perhaps concerned that these changes may threaten Australian food security or Australian agricultural productivity.
