This data collection aggregates district- and province-level data from the All-Russian Agricultural and Land Census of 1917 to provide indicators of farm management, production, and consumption in revolutionary European Russia. Information is provided on two models of collective land management and agricultural organization that existed in European Russia between the revolutions of 1905 and 1917. The data allow for analysis of agricultural organization and resource allocation in both private and state enterprises. The study is available in two parts. Part 1, Province Level, contains data on 21 provinces only. Part 2, District Level, contains information on 332 districts and 37 provinces. Districts comprising the provinces in Part 1 are also contained in Part 2. Information is provided on the same 26 variables in both parts. The variables include the portion of privately-owned farms with unsown areas for crops, the portion of privately-owned farms without any livestock, the portion of privately-owned farms without working livestock, the portion of privately owned farms with land for rent, the number of hired workers on the farms with land for rent, the amount of arable land on one property (measured in desyatina, which is roughly equal to 2.7 acres), the amount of sown area on one property (in desyatina), the amount of ploughed field on one property, the quantity of hired labor on one property, the quantity of working livestock on one property, the quantity of productive livestock on one property, the number of ploughs per farm property, the number of farming-related working tools on one property, the number of hired workers per desyatin of sown land, the number of working livestock per desyatin of sown land, the number of productive livestock per desyatin of sown land, the number of ploughs per desyatin of sown land, the number of farming-related working tools per desyatin of sown land, the share of ploughs per privately-owned, arable landholdings, the portion of hayfields per privately-owned, arable landholdings, the portion of forested area per privately-owned, arable landholdings, the portion of sown area per privately-owned, arable landholdings, the portion of privately-owned crops in the entire sown area, the portion of privately-owned, arable land in the total area of arable land, the percentage of privately-owned sown area tilled at own expense, and the share of sown grassland in the entire sown area under private ownership.
