This chapter contains information on the industrial sector. The annual industrial survey data is currently unavailable as there is a revision and methodological review for reference years 2008 - 2014. Industrial data for these years will be published in October 2016 with the yearbook being updated in due course.  Table 11.1 is compiled using the monthly data collected in the Industrial Production and Turnover Inquiry.  The primary purpose of the Industrial Production and Turnover Inquiry is to provide a short-term indication of changes in the volume of production and turnover.  This is published on a monthly basis.
