The paper presents recommendations on methodologies for calculating households’ standard agro-income for social assistance granting purposes. Three methods that are based on the use of 1) statistical data on agriculture, 2) household budget survey data and 3) consumer basket comparisons are considered in the paper. Applying the methodologies allows defining average household’s income from 1 hectare of land and from one head of cattle, pigs or poultry. The influence of application of the standard agro-income on social assistance programs is also analyzed.
