The Annual Survey of Manufacturers (ASM) is a survey collected by the U.S. Census in order to capture detailed information about key inputs to and outputs of production by manufacturing establishments. The 2018 ASM included three questions designed to measure the purchase and use of industrial robotic equipment by manufacturers. In this presentation, we will discuss the development of the questions, potential issues with the collected data based on interviews with survey participants, and plans for public use data products based on these questions.
