This fourth edition of the Report, analyzing data from 2013, highlights the size and importance of the co-operative sector across the globe and includes a special section focusing on the size and relevance of the agriculture and food industries sector. The data shows the co-operative sector continued to grow in 2013, with the turnover of the Top 300 increasing yet again. The Report studies co-operatives worldwide from 76 countries, including a wider database of organizations than ever. The top 300 of these co-operatives are ranked based on turnover as well as the ratio of turnover to gross domestic product (GDP) per capita, relating the turnover of the co-operative to the purchasing power of the country in which it operates in a comparable way.
