All filled-in questionnaires were first edited manually. Any ommissions, inconsistencies and errors found in the returns were corrected by contacting again the concerned respondents. In a few instances for which information could not be obtained imputation was done.
Manual coding of specific items was also done. After both editing and such coding works completed, all returns were sent for computer processing. Tables dtainèd from computer printouts had data by Bangladesh standard Industrial classification (BSIC) developed in conformity to International standard industrial classification (ISIC).
