Map of potential farm classes and earning before interest and tax (EBIT) from pastoral activities

The dataset has two GIS layers. The first layer is the potential farm by class and by region map in 2002. It is derived using sheep-beef farm class and region definitions from Meat and Wool Ltd and dairy region definitions from MAF. The second layer uses the first one as a base map to present the average (1990 to 2007) potential profitability (EBIT per ha) for being a farm of a certain class in a certain region.
