The EIP is an annual statistical operation carried out by the INE, in collaboration with Idescat in the area of Catalonia, to obtain precise and reliable information on the value and quantity of a wide set of industrial products (some 4,000) covering most of the industrial sector.
The annual exploitation of the EIP by Idescat provides information to 10, 8 and 6 digits from the PRODCOM-EIP product list. It also offers tables showing the time series of the results for each product and incorporates a search to make it easier for user to find any products being investigated.
