The 2002 Annual Survey of Philippine Business and Industry (2002 ASPBI) is a continuing activity of the National Statistics Office which aims to collect information on the structure and trends of economic activities in the entire country. The collected data from the industrial and non-industrial sectors refer to calendar year 2001.

Definition of Terms

Economic activity or business is the activity of the establishment as classified under the 1994 Philippine Standard Industrial Classification (PSIC). The main activity of the establishment is the establishment's principal source of income. If the establishment is engaged in several activities, its main activity is that which earns the biggest income or revenue.

Employment refers to the total number of persons who worked in or for the establishments as of November 15, 2001. Total employment includes paid employees and unpaid workers.

Paid employees are all persons working in the establishment receiving pay as well as those working away from the establishment when paid by and under the control of the establishment. Included are persons working as full-time or part-time and those employees on sick leave, paid vacation or holiday. Excluded are consultants, home workers and workers receiving commission only.

Unpaid workers include working owners who do not receive regular pay, apprentices and learners without regular pay, and persons working without regular pay for at least one third of the working time normal to the establishment.

Total compensation includes salaries and wages and employer?s contribution to SSS/GSIS, and the like.

Salaries and wages are payments whether in cash or in kind, prior to deductions for employees' contribution to SSS/GSIS, withholding tax, and the like, to all employees. Included are total basic pay, overtime pay, and benefits.

Employer's contribution to SSS/GSIS, and the like refers to payments made by the employer on behalf of the employees. Examples are employer's contributions to SSS/GSIS, Employees Compensation Commission (ECC), Philhealth, PAG-IBIG, and others.

Revenue or Sales include cash received and receivable for goods sold and services rendered. For manufacturing, total receipts include value of products sold, value of industrial services done for others, value of goods for resale, interest/dividend income and other revenue. Valuation is at producer's prices (ex-establishment), net of discounts and allowances, including duties and taxes but excluding subsidies.

Cost refers to all expenses excluding compensation incurred during the year whether paid or payable. Valuation should be at market price including taxes and other charges, net of discounts, rebates, returns and allowances. Goods and services received by the establishment from other establishment of the same enterprise are valued as though purchased.

Value of output represents the total value of products sold, receipts from contract work and industrial services done for others, receipts from goods bought and sold in the same condition, fixed assets produced on own account and change in inventories (ending less beginning of finished products, work-in-process and goods for resale).

Census value added represents the difference between the value of output and total costs of materials and supplies consumed, fuels purchased, electricity purchased, industrial services done by others and good purchased and resold.

Subsidies are all special grants in the forms of financial assistance or tax exemption or tax privilege given by the government to aid and develop an industry or production and to protect it against competition.

Fixed assets are physical assets expected to have productive life of more than one year and intended for use and/or being used by the establishment. Included are land, buildings, fixtures, machinery, tool, furniture, office equipment, vehicles, and the like.

Capital expenditures for fixed assets include cost of acquisition of new and used fixed assets; fixed assets produced by the establishment for its own use; major alterations, additions and improvements to fixed assets, whether done by others or done on own account.

Gross additions to fixed assets as a derived indicator, is equal to capital expenditures less sale of fixed assets, including land.

Change in total inventories as a derived indicator, is computed as the value of ending inventory less the value of beginning inventory.

Inventories refer to stocks of goods owned by or under the control of the establishment as of a fixed date, regardless of where the stocks are located. Valuation should be at current replacement cost based on market prices at indicated dates.

Replacement cost is the cost of an item in terms of its present price rather than its original cost.
