The sixth wave of the Ghanaian Manufacturing Enterprise Survey (GMES) was carried out in November 2000. The data collected during the sixth wave covered the period from 1998 to 1999. In this Report we have linked this data with that from the five earlier surveys carried out in 1992, 1993, 1994, 1996 and 1998. The intention of this Report is to show how the kind of detailed surveys which the GSO and the CSAE have now carried out over a long period, provide insights into the problems of the manufacturing sector that are an important input into policy in this area.
