Design of mineral end-use surveys.
NTIS: PB 286 064 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries, 1977; :1-189
This report describes and evaluates the methodology for a specific inductive capacity (sic) based, end use data scheme for minerals as recommended by the Pennsylvania State University to the Bureau of Mines. The scheme is based upon defining a set of technical product classes (tpc) for a mineral and defining sic based, end use markets for each tpc. The survey forms are designed to insure intercommodity comparisons at the sic two-digit levels and also includes several three-digit groups. This scheme will generate important new data on the sectoral demand for mineral commodities and will provide, for the first time, a data base that links the demand for minerals to national economic activity. The report may be used as a manual on how to design mineral sic based, end use data surveys.
