|Abstract: ||A process of agricultural data disaggregation is developed to address the lack of updated disaggregated data concerning main
livestock categories at subregional and county level in the Alentejo Region, southern Portugal.Themodel developed considers that
the number of livestock units is a function of the agricultural and forest occupation, and data concerning the existing agricultural
and forest occupation, as well as the conversion of livestock numbers into normal heads, are needed in order to find this relation.
The weight of each livestock class is estimated using a dynamic process based on a generalized maximum entropy model and on a
crossentropy minimization model, which comprises two stages. The model was applied to the county of Castelo de Vide and their
results were validated in cross reference to real data from different sources.|
