Abstract: The Cameroon Manufacturing Survey was conducted in the context of the ‘Regional Program on Enterprise Development in Africa’ (RPED), a project coordinated by the World Bank. The purpose of the project was to create a large firm level data-base including data on the performance of manufacturing firms as well as information on virtually all aspects of the business environment. The surveys were conducted by a team from the Centre d’Études en Administration Internationale (CETAI) at the École des Hautes Études Commerciales (HEC) in Montreal, Canada, and from the École Supérieure des Sciences Économiques et Comptables (ESSEC) at the University of Douala, Cameroon. The data were collected over the period 1993 to 1995 in a series of three annual surveys, referred to as wave I, wave II and wave III, and were conducted on enterprises taken from 4 manufacturing sectors: food and beverages, wood and furniture, textile and clothing, metal and small machinery. The number of firms surveyed in each wave was 210, 202 and 200 respectively.
