investigate if such correlation shown consistent to the point of being able to take both the PIB of
sector, as the production of inputs for the same, as separate indicators showing the same trend.
Before the treatment, such a correlation was checked as consistent as possible, with the assumption that PIB is a direct indicator of vitality in the sector, measurement of the level of industrial
