COVERAGE RATIO

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
The coverage ratio measures the extent to which observations designated as primary to a particular category are undertaken by units primarily involved with the observations related to that category.

In industry statistics, the coverage ratio is the output of goods and services characteristic of a particular industry in proportion to the total output of the same goods and services by the economy as a whole.
