In Sweden, more than 85 690 persons worked as regular workforce in farms with an output of less than €25 000 in 2010, whilst there were 15 520 people working in farms of less than 5 hectares. Only in the Netherlands and Malta, is the regular work force in small area farms bigger than the one in economically small farms.

The graph presents the regular labour force directly employed by small farms as percentage of the total regular labour force of all farms. Regular labour force consists of persons permanently employed in the farm, as well as those who work on an occasional basis (including family members).
