    Abstract

    The Census of Production is a survey of manufacturing establishments in the UK and
    has been carried out, in one form or another, since 1907. Initially the surveys
    were only taken every 5 years but since 1948 they have been done on an annual basis. Since 1952 sample techniques have been introduced such that approximately 1 in 7 establishments are required to provide information about their activities. Over
    the years the information asked has changed, with a general tendency toward greater simplification in the range of questions, yet always retaining the important
    aggregates - total persons employed, total wages and salaries, total value of output
    and capital expenditure. This brief explores recent Census data in the context of Scottish economic malaise.
