* APPAREL

PURPOSE

To provide detailed data on production, quantity and total value of shipments of selected apparel items. The United States Code, Title 13, requires this survey and provides for mandatory responses.

COVERAGE

Manufacturers, government contractors, and jobbers that cut and sew apparel (mostly but not all are in SIC 23), except small firms (generally less than 5 employees) for which census of manufactures data were from administrative records. Garments which are cut in the U.S. and sent outside the country to be sewn are included in this report. In 1993, apparel shipments amounted to nearly $37 billion.

CONTENT

Data are collected on over 70 types of apparel. Product data at the 7-digit SIC level include total quantity produced by type of fabric and total value of shipments. Small firms reporting annually do not provide detail by fabric type.

FREQUENCY

Quarterly and annually; reported data are for activities taking place during the applicable reporting period. Data on apparel have been collected since 1923.

METHODS

A mail-out/mail-back quarterly survey of 1,175 manufacturers that account for 95 percent of apparel cuttings; approximately 1,250 small firms receive an annual short form. The universe for this survey was the 1992 Census of Manufactures. Firms are contacted using form MQ23A and short form MA23A. Data are estimated quarterly for small establishments that report annually. Estimates are based on previous annual data and the trend of those reporting quarterly. Quarterly data may be revised if firms later provide corrected data.

* The apparel industry is characterized by three types of operations �manufacturers,jobbers,and contractors. The functions of the establishments classified as manufac- turers include purchasing materials,cutting and sewing the product within the manufacturer �s establishment,and selling the finished product.The functions of the jobber, like those of the manufacturer,involve buying raw materi- als and marketing the finished product.However,unlike the manufacturer,a jobber has a large part of the actual processing of the product done under contract in an out- side factory.Finally,the function of a contractor is to make products in his establishment according to clearly defined specifications,from materials owned by others.A contrac- tor,unlike the manufacturer or jobber,does not own the finished product and does not become involved in the actual sale of the finished goods.

The purpose of this survey is to provide the total domestic quantity produced and value of shipments for each type of garment.Since collecting this information from all three types of establishments would result in sub- stantial duplication,only manufacturers and jobbers are surveyed.

One other form of manufacturing apparel that is becoming more and more significant is what we refer to as ��9802 ��(formerly 807)production.For ��9802 ��produc- tion,a domestic manufacturer or jobber buys fabrics and cuts a garment domestically,and then exports the cut pieces to be sewn.The completed garment is then imported.Under special tariff provisions,duty is paid only on the value added rather than on the whole garment.The quantity and value of these garments are included in the domestic data,as well as in the import and export data. * Garments,Men �s and Boys �:
