P27 Industry

Industry refers to the activity of the establishment in which an employed person worked during the reference period established for data on economic characteristics. For each worker, write the name of the industry in which he/she worked during the reference period. If he/she was employed in more than one industry, then enter the industry which relates to the occupation already recorded. If he/she had the same occupation in different industries, then write the current industry in which he/she working.

A person with a certain skill can work in any industry where the skills are required. In such a situation, industry classification will depend on the industry in which he/she is actually employed.

[Omitted Examples]

Many enterprises have several functions and in such a case, the industry should relate to the functions of the establishment where the respondent is closely associated.


[Omitted Examples]

Write the category of Industry which a person is mostly associated with during the reference period.
Some difficulty may be experienced in identifying the industry of persons who move frequently from job to job or do odd jobs. Remember that what is wanted is the Industry of the current job, even if that job started only a day or two ago.
There is no Industry called "Service". For example, if someone is working as a Teacher/Lecturer he/she is in Education Industry. Such a person provides a service, but the Industry is not service. A retired Soldier employed as a Security Guard at Zambia Breweries is not in Security Services but working in a "Brewing Industry". But someone employed by Security Company e.g. Anderson Security, assigned to guard Zambia Breweries, is in "Security Services" (See Appendix 1 1 for a list of industries).
