Monthly Survey of Industrial Production and Employment (MIPE) is being conducted/ published by Sindh Bureau of Statistics on regular basis since 1970s. This report provides important statistics in respect of industrial production & employment of large Scale Manufacturing (LSM) industries in Sindh.

This report contains information on 70 items manufactured in 26 selected large scale industries covering 550 industrial establishments (selection on the basis of CMI 2005-06). These industries account for 70% of total value added of large scale manufacturing sector in Sindh.


MIPE Report provides information regarding General Index and Quantum Index of Manufacturing (QIM) to base period 2005-06,and analytical analysis on the current status of production and employment in manufacturing sector.

All the efforts are made to improve the industrial statistics and hope this report would prove useful to policy makers, planners, researchers and other data users. Suggestion/ recommendations from the users will always be welcomed and appreciated.


The basic method of data collection for Sindh MIPE is the posting/mailing of MIPE Questionnaires. More than 70% monthly returns are received to this Bureau through mail from industrial units. The non-responding or remaining establishments are visited by the officers/ officials of this Bureau,besides this the method of emailing, fax and telephonic approach are also used for collection of monthly returns and increase response rate.


All the received returns are scrutinized for accuracy and consistency with previous data by the Industries Section of this Bureau. As per Unit Calculation Sheet different units of similar products are converted into the reporting units. In case of huge discrepancy between current and previous returns the factory management is approached to rectify that figures. In the absence establishment’s return or non-availability of concerned person the average production of last month or the last month information is repeated.
