Sales of product of establishment, status
Sales of product refers to the sales of goods and services. Sales of goods represent the total proceeds of the disposition of stock-in-trade during the period. Sales of services represent the actual or expected cash inflow for services rendered during the period.
Establishment refers to the level at which accounting data required to measure production is available (principal inputs, revenues, salaries and wages). The establishment, as a statistical unit, is defined as the most homogeneous unit of production for which the business maintains accounting records from which it is possible to assemble all the data elements required to compile the full structure of the gross value of production (total sales or shipments, and inventories), the cost of materials and services, and labour and capital used in production.
