The objective of the main industrial groupings (MIGs) is to provide an activity breakdown of industry which is an intermediate level between the Sections and the Subsections of NACE. There are five MIGs: - intermediate goods; - capital goods; - consumer durables; - consumer non-durables; - energy. The definitions for each of the MIGs headings are based on the 3-digit level of NACE. It should be noted that the MIGs are not comparable in size, in particular the consumer durables heading is smaller than the others. http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/product?code=KS-DL-04-002&mode=view Main industrial groupings 2009Main industrial groupings 2001

The "main source of livelihood" is the principal source from which the consumption of each person was financed during a specified reference period. It is recommended to give preference to a long reference period, such as the preceding twelve months or the calendar year, in order to take account of sources which may actually provide an income at periodic or seasonal intervals (such as income from seasonal activities, payment of quarterly benefits from pension plans, annual payment of scholarships or dividends, income from intermittent secondary activities, etc.). Income in kind as well as in cash should be taken into account. http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/ramon/statmanuals/files/Recomm_estat_2010_EN.pdf

Ordinary maintenance and repairs of fixed assets are activities that owners or users of fixed assets are obliged to undertake periodically in order to be able to utilise assets over their expected service lives (they are current costs that cannot be avoided if the fixed assets are to continue to be used); maintenance and repairs do not change the fixed asset or its performance, but simply maintain it in good working order or restore it to its previous condition in the event of a breakdown (note the contrast between this item and "major renovations or enlargements"). http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/ramon/statmanuals/files/SNA_1993_EN.pdf

Major renovations or enlargements are activities which increase the performance or capacity of existing fixed assets or significantly extend their previously expected service lives; the decision to renovate, reconstruct or enlarge a fixed asset is a deliberate investment decision which may be undertaken at any time and is not dictated by the condition of the asset. http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/ramon/statmanuals/files/oecd_measuring_capital_2001_en.pdf
Major renovations or enlargements to fixed assets are distinguished by the following features: a. The decision to renovate, reconstruct or enlarge a fixed asset is a deliberate investment decision that may be undertaken at any time and is not dictated by the condition of the asset. Major renovations of ships, buildings or other structures are frequently undertaken well before the end of their normal service lives; b. Major renovations or enlargements increase the performance or capacity of existing fixed assets or significantly extend their previously expected service lives. Enlarging or extending an existing building or structure obviously constitutes a major change in this sense, but a complete refitting or restructuring of the interior of a building, or ship, also qualifies (SNA 2008, § 6.229). Major renovations or enlargements of fixed assets are activities which increase the performance or capacity of existing fixed assets or significantly extend their previously expected service lives and so are classified as part of gross fixed capital formation; the decision to renovate, reconstruct or enlarge a fixed asset is a deliberate investment decision which may be undertaken at any time and is not dictated by the condition of the asset (note the contrast between this item and "maintenance and repairs") (SNA 1993, § 6.162). http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/ramon/statmanuals/files/SNA2008.pdf United Nations, System of National Accounts (SNA) 1993, United Nations, New York, 1993
