Annotations:

 

1. Explanatory Notes

 

Capacity utilization: refers to the ratio of actual output to production capacity (both measured by value).

 

The actual output of the enterprise refers to the total industrial output value of the enterprise in the reporting period; the production capacity of the enterprise refers to the product output that the enterprise can achieve and can maintain for a long time when the production equipment (machinery) maintains normal operation under the condition that the supply of labor, raw materials, fuel, transportation, etc. is guaranteed during the reporting period.

 

2. Survey Method and Coverage

 

A comprehensive survey of large and medium-sized enterprises and a sample survey of small and micro enterprises involved about 90000 industrial enterprises.

 

Small and micro enterprises calculate the overall population according to the sampling method, and synthesize the survey data of large and medium-sized enterprises to calculate the utilization rate of national industrial capacity.

 

The survey is conducted on a quarterly basis and the data are not seasonally adjusted.

 

3. Standard on industrial classification

 

NBS enforces New Standard on Industrial Classification for National Economic Activities" (GB/T 4754-2017). For details, please refer the following link: http://www.stats.gov.cn/tjsj/tjbz/hyflbz.
