Data on government support to agriculture in the OECD area (including European Union) and other major economies, measured by indicators including the Producer Support Estimate (PSE) and Consumer Support Estimate.
Government support to agriculture in OECD countries fell to 19% of total farm receipts in 2011, a record low driven by developments in international commodity markets, rather than by explicit policy changes, according to the report Agricultural Policy: Monitoring and Evaluation 2012.

Chile has made important progress in raising incomes and reducing poverty. Real per capita incomes have more than doubled since the restoration of democracy in 1990, and the incidence of poverty (as measured by the cost of two basic food baskets) has fallen by nearly two-thirds, from 38.6% of the population in 1990 to 13.7% in 2006. Over the same period extreme poverty, as measured by the cost of one basic food basket, has been almost
This Review of Agricultural Policies: Chile measures the level and composition of support provided to Chilean agriculture, evaluates the effectiveness of current measures in attaining their objectives, and suggests ways in which the performance of policies might be enhanced.
