The annual production survey (EAP) has two main goals:

- to provide elements allowing the production of high-quality on industrial output in order to meet the requirements of the European Prodcom regulation, but also to meet demands from national users, in particular from professional organisations.

PRODCOM is the title of the industrial production (PROD) surveys defined at EU level (COM) and governed by regulation (EEC) n°3924/91 of the Council (19 December 1991).

Historique :

The survey was first conducted in 2009 covering data for 2008. The annual production survey (EAP) is new.

It replaces the annual survey on enterprises in industry (EAE) which started in the mid 1960s, the survey on small industrial enterprises  (EPEI) conducted by INSEE every four or five years which complemented the EAE on small enterprises, and the annual branch survey (EAB).

The annual production survey (EAP) eases the burden of surveyed enterprises by making widespread use of administrative sources. All the data already available in the administration, most notably tax data, are  no longer part of a statistical survey.

Plan de sondage :

40,000 enterprises are surveyed, exhaustively when they are above a certain turnover threshold by NAF subclass, and by sampling below this threshold

Autres spécifications :

The EAP is conducted by SSNE (National Service of Enterprise Statistics) in the Basse-Normandie regional service.
