Correlations, trends and realities in the European agri-food model.

The previous chapter presents a cluster analysis of 24 European countries in the years 2006, 2009 and 2015 according to the four variables of animal production, vegetal production, total labour force input in the agri-food sector, and gross value added in the agri-food sector. In order to analyse the correlations between these variables and to characterize trends in the agri-food industry, the eight countries that in 2009 and 2015 were included in clusters C2-C4 were selected for analysis in the present chapter, as these clusters presented mean values of parameters that were significantly different from the 16 countries included in cluster C1. For 2015, the eight countries were grouped into clusters as follows: cluster C2 comprised Germany, Spain, the Netherlands and the UK; cluster C3 consisted of France and Italy; and cluster C4 contained Poland and Romania. The characteristics of the evolution of the agricultural sector in each cluster are analysed.
