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.
This section shows the results of the EIP from 2008, the first year that used the Catalan Classification of Economic Activities 2009 (CCAE-2009). The results for the years 1993 to 2007, which appear in the publication Estadística, producció i comptes de la indústria 2007, used the CCAE-93.
