Service sector survey started: Sadananda Gowda
Aimed at getting accounting data from service establishments on the lines of that provided by the manufacturing sector, for the first time the Centre has started a survey on the services sector. 

“The service sector survey is being carried out to validate the use of establishments as a basis for conducting regular survey on services. It will examine the availability of accounts which are used in the services survey,” Union Minister for Statistics and Programme Implementation D V Sadananda Gowda told reporters here on Tuesday while briefing on the three-year achievements of the government.

The survey would  examine whether services establishments were able to give us same kind of accounting data which the manufacturing establishments give. The results will give a picture if it is sustainable, he said.

The Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation (MOSPI) has also initiated an employment survey this year. The survey will give quarterly data of the job sector in the urban areas and annual data from rural areas. The employment survey results will come by end of 2018, he said. A portal is being planned for online collection of data on industrial production for greater accuracy in assessing the economic activity he said.
