PIMES - Monthly Survey of Industrial Employment and Wages | December 2015


The Monthly Survey of Industrial Employment and Wages - PIMES came to an end in 2016 with the release of the results relative to December 2015.

The survey was started in 1968 under the name Monthly Industrial Survey - General Data, aiming at monitoring employed persons, wages and industrial output value. Due to methodological reformulation and enhancement, the last of which carried out in 2001, when the current name was given, the survey ceased to provide information relative to the value of industrial production and started providing specific indicators on the behavior of jobs and salaries in the industry. The collection unit were enterprises with local branches registered in the National Registry of Legal Entities - CNPJ, of the Secretariat of Federal Revenue, and recognized as industries in the Central Register of Enterprises - CEMPRE, of the IBGE.

Up to December 2014, its results, comprising indicators on salaried employed persons, hirings, layoffs, number of hours paid and value of the payroll in nominal terms (current values) and real terms (deflated by the Extended National Consumer Price Index - IPCA), encompassed the following areas: Brazil; North Region, Northeast Region, Southeast, South, Central-West; and the States of Ceará, Pernambuco, Bahia, Minas Gerais, Espírito Santo, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Paraná, Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul. The results relative to 2015 were made available only for Brazil, including, however, all the indicators and activities usually disseminated.

The progressive gains in quality in the database of the General Register of Employed and Unemployed - CAGED, of the Ministry of Labor, and the implementation of the Continuous National Household Sample Survey - PNAD-C, which has national coverage and produces a wide range of information on the short-term behavior of the labor market, with information released monthly for Brazil and quarterly for all Federative Units, reduced quite substantively the relevance of the information obtained from PIMES and led the IBGE to decide for its interruption.
