Index of Industrial Production (IIP)
Does your office calculate an index of industrial production?YesYesYesYes. For Medium and Large Scale IndustriesYes.YesWe do pilot estimation.YesYesYesyes
If yes, with what frequency? (monthly, quarterly, annual, …)MonthlyQuarterlyMonthlyMonthly frequencyQuarterly.Monthly MonthlyMonthlyMonthlymonthly, quarterly, annualmonthly
At what level is the IIP made available? (at what level of ISIC; for how many industries) (if separate for annual and monthly data, please specify)ISIC rev.2,at two digit level-8 industries, at four digit level-61 industries.IIP for 7 industry groups are published: ISIC Rev. 4 Description Food, beverages and tobacco 13 Textiles 14 Wearing apparel 17-18 Paper products, printing and reproduction of recorded media 24-30 Metal, computer, electronic and optical products, machinery and equipment 15-16, 19-23, Miscellaneous manufacturing industries 31-33 37-39 Sewerage, waste management and remediation activitiesGeneral, Sectoral (Mining, Manufacturing & Electricity) and two digit industry level for 17 industry groups.At level of 2 digit ISIC of 18 types of manufacturing industries Section D and E, 5 divisions for D and 2 divisions for E.IIP covers Manufacturing, Mining and Electricity activities. Manufacturing indices - ISIC section (1-digit), ISIC division (2-digit), ISIC group (3-digit) and Malaysia Standard Industrial Classification (MSIC) (5-digit) level Mining indices - ISIC section (1-digit), MSIC (5-digit) and commodity/product level. Electricity indices - ISIC section (1-digit) level.ISIC 3.1. We are using 2 digit level at Mining and quarrying, Manufacturing, Electricity, thermal energy and water supply without Manufacture of food products and beverages sector and 3 digit level at Manufacture of food products sector.100 products relating to ISIC Rev 3.1 Divisions4-digit/3-digit Philippine Industrial Classification System (PSIC) which is consistent with ISIC rev 3 For 20 major sectors with further disaggregation for 10 or 37 sub-sectors 6 clusters with a total of 19 segments within the clusters.Level 4 digit ISIC Rev.3.1 53 industries
What method of calculation is used for the IIP? (volume aggregation, deflation)Volume aggregation(Laspears Formula)Volume aggregation and deflationLaspeyre’s fixed-base volume indexVolume aggregationVolume aggregation.Combination of volume aggregation and deflation.Volume aggregation, deflationProduction quantitiesLaspeyers method of index computation where volume is derived with PPI as deflator.volume and deflated value aggregationVolume aggregation
How often are the weights for the IIP updated?No Specific time. last updated base year 1988-89.We are planning for re-basing.AnnualAt the time of base revision, the periodicity of which is not fixed.Every five yearsEvery 5 years at higher aggregation level.Once in 5 years when a Census of Manufacturing and Census of Mining Industry are conductedAnnuallyAfter five yearsWhen rebasing is undertaken and new results of the Census of Philippine Business and Industry are available.Every 5 years5 yearly
Do you carry out seasonal adjustment of the series? Do you carry out workday adjustment of the series?NoYes NoNoNo NoNo.No NoNo. NoNO YesSeasonal adjustment: Yes.yes no
With what time lag are IIP data published?Minimum 3 months.Around 2.5 monthsSix weeksOne monthAbout 2 months after the reference quarter.6 weeks after the end of the reference month.We don’t publish because this is pilot estimation.45 days55 days after each reference month1 month time lagTime lag 27 days
How are published IIP data displayed? (as changes over a fixed base period; as changes over previous period; as changes over same period of last year)Changes over a fixed base period for compiling Index and changes over same period of last year for the growth rate.IIP data are displayed as changes over same period of last yearAs changes over same period of last yearAs changes over previous periodAs changes over a fixed base period; as changes over previous period; and as changes over same period of last year.As changes over same period of last year and as changes over previous period As changes over same period of last yearAs changes over a fixed based period. As changes over previous period (month-on-month). As changes over same period of last year (year-on-year).Changes over a fixed base periodmonthly
Have you encountered specific problems in the compilation of IIP?i) Seasonal adjustment ii) Closed/non-response industriesNoProblem in quality of monthly production data.Yes, if the number of samples is not completeNilMethod in compiling index of Building of Ships using volume extrapolation of hours worked.Calculation of weights.Data regarding production values not availableUnit non-response Item non-response Closure of sample establishment Changes in industry grouping or expansion in industries covered.YesRespondents sent the questionnaires back delay

If yes, with what frequency? -- - Monthly -Monthly and also annual NAmonthly
What basic method is used for the calculation? -- - The actual quantity of products produced (during the reference month) as compared with the maximum quantity which a factory is able to produce. -Simple aggregationNA 
Do you have sub-annual estimates of GDP for goods-producing industries or some subset thereof?NoYesYesYes Yes Monthly production data of Manufacturing,Mining & QuarryingNSO does not generate GDP. Another Office (National Statistical Coordination Board) generates this data set.NAno
