The Monthly Survey of Manufacturing (MSM) publishes statistical series for manufacturers - sales of goods manufactured, inventories, unfilled orders and new orders. The target population for the MSM consists of all statistical establishments on the business register that are classified to the manufacturing sector. It includes durable and non-durable goods industries and also production based ones. Approximately 10 500 units are sampled from the 27 000 establishments in the sampling frame. Sales of goods manufactured (formerly shipments of goods manufactured) are defined as the value of goods manufactured by establishments that have been shipped to a customer. Sales of goods manufactured exclude any wholesaling activity, and any revenues from the rental of equipment or the sale of electricity. For the aerospace product and parts, and shipbuilding industries, the value of production is used instead of sales of goods manufactured.
