Annotations:

 

1.    Explanation of Indicator.

 

Growth rate of value added of the industrial enterprises: also known as industrial growth rate, which is used to reflect a certain period of increase or decrease in volume of industrial production indicators of the degree of change. The indicator can be used to estimate the short-term trend of the industrial economy, to judge the extent of the economic boom, and also to be an important reference and basis for the formulation and adjustment of economic policies, and for the implementation of macroeconomic adjustment and control.

Sales ratio: refers to sale value and industrial output value, which reflecting the situation between production and sales of industrial products.

 

Export delivery value: refers to the foreign trade department of industrial enterprises or self-run (commission) exports (including sold in Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan), with the price of foreign exchange settlement of product value, and foreign samples, materials processing, component assembly and compensation trade product value. In calculating the export delivery value, the transaction price of foreign exchange should be converted into RMB.

 

Daily product output: the total production of the total value added of the industrial enterprises above designated size in the current month divided by number of days in the month.

 

The year-on-year growth rate of product output: as industrial enterprises above designated size range will be some changes each year, according to the regulations of NBS, the data in the same period of previous year were required when enterprises submit monthly data. Hence, the year-on-year growth rate of product output was calculated by the current total value added of the industrial enterprises above designated size divided by the data submitted at the same time period.

 

2.    Statistical Coverage.

 

From 2011 on, the standard starting point of industrial enterprises above designated size was adjusted to 20 million yuan of annual revenue from primary business, the former one was 5 million yuan.

 

3.    Data Collection.

 

The reports of industrial enterprises above designated size are conducted with complete survey on a monthly basis (Not report for January).

 

4.    Division on Eastern, Central and Western Regions.

 

Eastern region includes Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, Liaoning, Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Fujian, Shandong, Guangdong, and Hainan. Central region includes Shanxi, Jilin, Heilongjiang, Anhui, Jiangxi, Henan, Hubei, and Hunan. Western region includes Inner Mongolia, Guangxi, Chongqing, Sichuan, Guizhou, Yunnan, Tibet, Shaanxi, Gansu, Qinghai, Ningxia, and Xinjiang.

 

5.    Standard on industrial classification

 

From 2012, NBS enforces New Standard on Industrial Classification for National Economic Activities" (GB/T4754-2011). The number of industrial sectors expanded from 39 to 41. For details, please refer the following link: http://www.stats.gov.cn/tjsj/tjbz/hyflbz.

 

6.    Revision on month-on-month data

 

The month-on-month growth rate of the total value added of the industrial enterprises above designated size from April 2014 to March 2015 was revised according to the results of automatic revision of seasonal adjustment model. The results and data in April 2015 are as follows:
