In 2007, approximately 16 800, or 23 per cent, of the holdings had some kind of other gainful activity beside the agriculture activity, but directly related to the holding. The most common form of other gainful activities was different forms of contract work. Of the holdings involved with other gainful activities directly related to the holding, about 50 per cent were involved in contract work. The most common activity beside contract work was activities within tourism, letting, and other leisure activities. Approximately 4 000 holdings, or 24 per cent of the holdings, were involved in these types of activities.
A new method for imputations of missing or incomplete data was used in order to calculate the result for 2007. This decision was taken after having reviewed a report examining other gainful activities and income of Swedish agriculture holdings (Statistikrapport 2007:3, Other gainful activities on the agricultural holding and income of the agricultural household). This report indicated that the number of holdings involved with other gainful activities directly related to the holding, was in fact greater than what has previously been estimated. A template for the number of holdings which ran this type of activity was calculated. Hence, in cases where the holder had neglected to leave information, the calculated template was used to imputate data. In previous surveys, in cases where the holder had left such information out, it was simply regarded as a negative answer. Statistics on the number of holdings involved in other gainful activities has most likely been underestimated in previous years. The data from the 2007 survey are likely to be more accurate.
