TECHNICAL NOTES

 

  • Introduction

This Special Release presents the preliminary results of the 2014 ASPBI for the Electricity, Gas, Steam and Air Conditioning Supply sector for establishments with total employment of 20 and over..

The 2014 ASPBI is one of the designated statistical activities of the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA). Data collected from the survey provide information on the levels, structure, performance, and trends of economic activities of the formal sector in the entire country for the year 2014. The 2014 Survey of Tourism Establishments in the Philippines was undertaken as a rider to this survey.

The survey was conducted nationwide in April 2015 with the year 2014 as the reference period of data, except for employment which is as of November 15, 2014.

Data are presented at the national and industry group or 3-digit 2009 Philippine Standard Industrial Classification (PSIC) and at the regional level.

 

  • Legal Authority

TThe conduct of the 2014 ASPBI is authorized under Republic Act 10625 known as the Philippine Statistical Act of 2013 - Reorganizing and strengthening of the Philippine Statistical System (PSS), its agencies and instrumentalities.

 

  • Scope and Coverage

The 2014 ASPBI covered establishments engaged in 18 economic sectors classified under the 2009 PSIC, namely:

  • Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing (A)
  • Mining and Quarrying (B)
  • Manufacturing (C)
  • Electricity, Gas, Steam, and Air Conditioning Supply (D)
  • Water Supply; Sewerage, Waste Management and Remediation Activities (E)
  • Construction (F)
  • Wholesale and Retail Trade; Repair of Motor Vehicles and Motorcycles (G)
  • Transportation and Storage (H)
  • Accommodation and Food Service Activities (I)
  • Information and Communication (J)
  • Financial and Insurance Activities (K)
  • Real Estate Activities (L)
  • Professional, Scientific and Technical Activities (M)
  • Administrative and Support Service Activities (N)
  • Education (P)
  • Human Health and Social Activities (Q)
  • Arts, Entertainment and Recreation (R)
  • Other Service Activities (S)

The following sections of the 2009 PSIC are excluded from the scope of this survey and all other establishment-based surveys of PSA:

  • Public Administration and Defense; Compulsory Social Security (Section O)
  • Activities of Households as Employers; Undifferentiated Goods and Services Producing Activities of Households for Own Use (Section T)
  • Activities of Extra-territorial Organization and Bodies (Section U)

The survey was confined to the formal sector of the economy, which consists of the following:

  • Corporations and partnership
  • Cooperatives and foundations
  • Single proprietorship with employment of 10 and over
  • Single proprietorships with branches

Hence, the 2014 ASPBI covered only the following economic units:

  • All establishments with total employment of 10 and over; and
  • All establishments with total employment of less than 10, except those with Legal Organization = 1 (Single proprietorship) and Economic Organization = 1 (Single establishments), that are engaged in economic activities described according to the 2009 PSIC

 

  • Frame

The frame for the 2014 ASPBI was extracted from the 2014 List of Establishments (LE). The estimated number of establishments in operation in the country in 2014 totaled to 944,500. About 266,257 establishments (28.0% of the total establishments) belong to the formal sector of which 231,241 (87.0%) comprised the establishment frame. This frame was used to draw the sample establishments for the survey.

 

  • Unit of Enumeration

The unit of enumeration for the 2014 ASPBI is the establishment. An establishment is defined as an economic unit under a single ownership or control which engages in one or predominantly one kind of activity at a single fixed location.

 

  • Classification of Establishments

An establishment is categorized by its economic organization, legal organization, industrial classification, employment size, and geographic location.

Economic Organization relates to the organizational structure or role of the establishment in the organization.  An establishment may be single establishment, branch, establishment and main office with branches elsewhere, main office only, and ancillary unit other than main office.

Legal Organization refers to the legal form of the economic entity that owns the establishment.  This provides the legal basis for ownership.  An establishment may be single proprietorship, partnership, government corporation, stock corporation, non-stock corporation, and cooperative.

Industrial classification of an economic unit was determined by the activity from which it derives its major income or revenue.  The 2009 PSIC was utilized to classify economic units according to their economic activities.

Size of an establishment is determined by its total employment (TE) as of a specific date. 

Geographic Classification refers to the classification of establishments by geographic area using the Philippine Standard Geographic Code (PSGC) classification.

 

  • Methodology

Sampling Design

The survey utilized stratified systematic sampling with 5-digit PSIC serving as the industry strata and employment size as the second stratification variable.

For establishments with TE of 20 and over, the 17 administrative regions serve as the geographic domains while the 5-digit level (sub-class) of the 2009 PSIC serves as the industry domain.  

Estimation Procedure

a. Non-Certainty Stratum (strata TE of 20-49 and TE of 50-99)

The estimate of the total of a characteristic  for the non-certainty employment strata in TE of 20 and over for an industry domain in each region (geographic domain) is

where:

s       denotes the non-certainty employment strata in TE of 20 and over

p       = 1, 2,..., 17  regions (geographic domains)

xspj   = value of the jth establishment in the non-certainty employment strata in TE of 20 and over for an industry domain in each region

j        =  1, 2, 3,…, nsp establishments

Wspj  = weight of the jth establishment in the non-certainty employment strata in TE of 20 and over for an industry domain in each region

Nsp = total number of establishments in the non-certainty employment strata in TE of 20 and over for an industry domain in each region

 nsp  = number of sample establishments in the non-certainty employment strata in TE of 20 and over for an industry domain in each region

 

b. Certainty Stratum

The estimate of the total of a characteristic  for the certainty employment stratum in TE of 20 and over in an industry domain in each geographic domain (region) is

where:  

     c      denotes the certainty employment stratum in TE of 20 and over

    p    = 1, 2,..., 17 regions (geographic domains)

    xcpj  = value of the jth establishment in the certainty employment stratum in TE of 20 and over in an industry domain within each region

   J      = 1, 2, 3, …, mcp establishments

  mcp   = number of establishments in the certainty employment stratum in TE of 20 and over in an industry domain within each region

             

c. Total Estimate for TE of 20 and Over

The estimate of the total of a characteristic  for the industry domain in each region (geographic domain) was obtained by aggregating the estimates for all employment strata (non-certainty and certainty) in the same industry domain,

             where

                     dp   denotes the industry domains in each region

National level estimates of the characteristics by industry domain were obtained by aggregating separately the estimates  for the particular industry domain from all the regions.

 

Weight Adjustment Factor for Non-Response

To account for non-response in the non-certainty strata, the adjustment factors, and (n/n’) was multiplied with the sampling weight (W) of each of the sampling unit. The sampling weight which is defined as N/n was recomputed as

                                                  

                                         

For the non-certainty employment stratum in TE of 20-49 or 50-99, the adjusted weight (W’spj) is

    where:

Nsp   = total number of establishments in the non-certainty employment stratum in TE of 20-49 or 50-99 for an industry domain within each  geographic domain (region)
n’sp  = number of responding establishments in the non-certainty employment stratum in TE of 20-49 or 50-99 for an industry domain within each geographic domain (region)
 
  • Response Rate

Response rate for Electricity, Gas, Steam, and Air Conditioning Supply sector for establishments with TE of 20 and over was 80.9 percent (220 out of 272 establishments). This included receipts of "good" questionnaires, partially accomplished questionnaires, reports of closed, moved out or out of scope establishments.

Reports of the remaining non-reporting establishments were imputed based on established imputation methods and from other available administrative data sources. However, reports of establishments which were found to be duplicates and out of business in 2014, were not imputed.

 

  • Limitation of Data

The 2014 ASPBI covered only the formal sector of the economy.

 

  • Concepts and Definitions of Terms

Economic Activity is the establishment’s source of income. If the establishment is engaged in several activities, its main economic activity is that which earns the biggest income or revenue.

Total employment is the number of persons who worked in for the establishment as of November 15, 2014.

Paid employees are all full-time and part-time employees working in or for the establishment and receiving pay, as well as those working away from the establishment and paid by and under the control of the establishment. Included also are all employees on sick or maternity leave, paid vacation or holiday and on strike. Excluded are directors paid solely for their attendance at meetings, consultants, workers on indefinite leave, working owners who do not receive regular pay, home workers and 98 workers receiving pure commissions only.

Compensation is the sum of salaries and wages, separation, terminal pay and gratuities paid by the establishment to its employees and total employer’s contribution to SSS/GSIS, ECC, PhilHealth, PAG-IBIG etc.

Salaries and wages are payments in cash or in kind to all employees, prior to deductions for employee’s contributions to SSS/GSIS, withholding tax, etc. Included are total basic pay, overtime pay and other benefits.

Income or Revenue includes cash received and receivables for goods/products and by-products sold and services rendered. Valuation is at producer prices (ex-establishment) net of discounts, and allowances, including duties and taxes but excluding subsidies.

E-Commerce refers to the selling of products or services over electronic systems such as the Internet Protocol-based networks and other computer networks, Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) network, or other on-line system. Excluded are orders received from telephone, facsimile and e-mails

Expense refers to cost incurred by the establishment in an enterprise’s effort to generate revenue, representing the cost of doing business. This is treated on a consumed basis. It excludes cost incurred in the acquisition of income generating assets.

Intermediate expense are expenditures incurred in the production of goods such as materials and supplies used, fuels, lubricants, oils and greases used; electricity and water purchased, agricultural/forestry/fishery  and industrial services done by others.

Value added is gross output less intermediate input. Gross output is value of output plus income from non-industrial services done for others (except rent income from land). Intermediate input is intermediate expense plus expense for non-industrial services done by others (except rent expense for land) and all other expense.

Value of output represents the sum of the sale of products and by-products, income from industrial services done for others, sale of goods  less cost of goods sold, fixed assets produced on own account, and change in inventories of finished products and work-in-progress.

Gross addition to tangible fixed assets is equal to capital expenditures less sale of fixed assets, including land.

Change in Inventories is computed as the value of ending inventory less the beginning inventory.

Inventories refer to the stock of goods owned by and under the control of the establishment as of a fixed date, regardless of where the stocks are located. Valuation is at current replacement cost in purchaser prices. Replacement cost is the cost of an item in terms of its present price rather than its original cost.

Subsidies refer to special grants received from the government in the form of financial assistance or tax exemption or tax privilege to aid and develop an industry.
