Current Industrial Report

From Open Risk Manual


Current Industrial Report (CIR). Census data source for selected manufacturing industries that provides monthly, quarterly, and annual measures of industrial activity.

The primary objective of the CIR program is to produce timely data on production and shipments of selected products. These surveys measure manufacturing activity in important commodity areas such as textiles and apparel, chemicals, primary metals, computer and electronic components, industrial equipment, aerospace equipment, and consumer goods. In some cases where CIR data are available, the Economic Census may not collect data for the detailed products.[1]
