Estimates of Value Added per Worker from Enterprise Surveys

Cross-validation of data collected on various parameters, through independent sets of data from alternative sources, is desirable as it enhances data credibility and enthuses confidence among data users. Such an exercise for estimates of household consumption expenditure from the consumption expenditure surveys (CES) of the National Sample Survey Organisation (NSSO) and National Accounts Statistics (NAS) is available in the literature. A similar exercise for the estimates of value added per worker derived from the results of Enterprise Surveys. The non-availability of information on value added per worker through more than one source is the reason for the paucity of such exercises. An attempt has been made in this paper to examine the feasibility of using estimates of per worker consumption expenditure available from the CES 1993-94, in which information on the activity status of members of the same households was also collected.
