Bangladesh Census of Manufacturing Industries 1986-87
The 1986-87 report of the Census of Manufacturing Industries (CMI), is the 15th in its series. Data presented in the report relate to manufacturing establishments registered with the Chief Inspector of Faôtories under the Factories Act, 1934 and responded to the census. The tables contain information on structures, operations and outputs of the units. Some comparison tables have also been incorporated in this report which reflect key findings of the 1985-86and 1986-87 censuses of manufacturing industries. I believe the users will find the report useful. The officers and staff of the CMI section of the Industry, Trade, Labour Statistics and National Income (ITLS & NI) Wing of BBS, responsible for collection and compilation of the data deserve our thanks. The analysis, interpretation and publication of this report was performed by Md. Zobdul Hoque, Deputy-Director, in-charge of the CMI who was assisted by M.A. Jalil, Statistical Officer.

All filled-in questionnaires were first edited manually. Any omissions, inconsistencies, and errors found in the returns were corrected by contacting the respondents. In a few instances, where information gap could not be filled-in, imputations were made.
Manual coding of specific items was also done. After both editing and coding returns were sent for computer processing. Tables obtained from computer as form of computer printout are directly used for publication. Tabulation of;census data was based on Bangladesh standard industrial classification (BSIC'86) developed in conformity to International Standard Industrial Classification (ISIC), 1968.
