Estimates and projections of the agricultural population and the economically active population (or labour force) in agriculture are important for agricultural planning since, apart from indicating the size of the population depending for their living on, and engaged in agriculture, they have direct implications on agricultural employment policies. They are also needed for the determination of such important development indicators as per Capita agricultural income, labour productivity in agriculture and the proportion of population or labour force in agriculture.

La création d'organismes permanents d'enquêtes sur le terrain dans le cadre des services statistiques africains est à l'étude depuis de nombreuses années et dans certains pays ces organismes existent déjà. Ils se justifient par la nécessite de recueillir des informations relativement exactes sur les secteurs des ménages et des entreprises privées, qu'il est impossible d'obtenir de sources centralistes d'informations dans les pays en voie de développement.

Black cotton soils are one of those clays with a high content of montmorillenite. These have a very high plasticity leading to high rates of expansion on wetting followed by shrinkage and considerable cracking on drying. The black cotton soils of Ethiopia have liquid limits ranging between 80 and 120 and plasticity indices of 40 to 80 (see figure l). The activity of these clays is between 0.8 and 1.5. Thus by the Skempton classification the activity of these clays is considerable and, as one would expect, swelling potential is high.
