The annual Northern Ireland Manufacturing Sales and Exports Survey (MSES) provides estimates of the sales and exports generated by all businesses within the manufacturing industry in Northern Ireland (classified as Standard Industrial Classification 2007 (SIC07) divisions 10-33). The survey has been carried out since 1991/92. The Northern Ireland Economic Research Centre conducted the survey fieldwork each year prior to 2003 when it was passed to Economic and Labour Market Statistics Branch, DFP. The survey is a standalone Northern Ireland Survey and does not have a direct counterpart among GB statistical outputs. There are a variety of users of the MSES data – Economists and policy developers (primarily within the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment (DETI), Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD) and Invest NI), Office for National Statistics (ONS), academics and students, banking sector analysts, economic analysts and consultants as well as the general public.
