This report gives a detailed account of work on surveys used in the analyses for this project. It examines growth, productivity and earnings trends in Tanzania's manufacturing sector during the 1990s. The data is drawn from a panel of Tanzanian manufacturing firms covered by the RPED surveys (for the 1992-95 period) and a follow-up survey conducted in 1999 which collected data for all surviving RPED firms for the period 1996-98 (a total of 89 firms) plus a further 106 replacement firms.
