Agricultural Support Estimates / Total Transfers contains country Total Support Estimate
(TSE) and derived indicators, which cover all agricultural production, i.e. all agricultural commodities
produced in the country. Definitions of basic data sets refer to the specific programmes applied in the country.
For the Producer Support Estimate (PSE) and Consumer Support Estimate (CSE), each policy measure is
classified according to implementation criteria, which include: the transfer basis of support (output, input,
area/animal numbers/receipts/income, and non-commodity criteria); whether support is based on current or
non-current basis; whether production is required or not to receive payment. Each policy measure is also
assigned several “labels” indicating additional implementation criteria. "MPS commodities", which vary
across countries, are those for which the market price support is explicitly calculated in Tables 4.1 – 4.11.
