New Dataset: Annual Survey of Industries Detailed Unit Level Data with Common Factory-ID

Annual Survey of Industries (ASI) Detailed Unit Level Data with Common Factory-ID is now available to Columbia University students.  The Library has data from 1998 to 2014.

The Annual Survey of Industries (ASI) is the principal source of Industrial Statistics in
India. The ASI extends to the entire country except the States of Arunachal Pradesh and Mizoram and Union territory of Lakshadweep. It covers all factories registered under the section 2(m) (i) and 2(m) (ii) of the Factories Act 1948 i.e. those factories employing 10 or more workers using power; and those employing 20 or more workers without using power. The survey also covers Bidi and cigar manufacturing establishments registered under the Bidi and Cigar workers (Conditions of Employment) Act 1966 and electricity undertaking with coverage as above.

ASI provides data on a various vital aspects of the registered factories for use in the
estimation of National Income, studies of industrial structure and policy formulation.
Some of the important indicators generated based on ASI are number of factories,
employment, wages, invested capital, capital formation, input, output, depreciation and
value added on an annual basis.

With firm identifiers from the firm-level data, researchers can do longitudinal research
to track the same company over time periods as long as it is included in the ASI.
