Despite this, the income for the manufacturing division increased (by 4.3%) over that period. The increases were in Food, beverage and tobacco manufacturing (by 15.7%), Machinery and equipment manufacturing (by 9.7%), and Petroleum, coal, chemical and associated product (by 9.0%). The largest decreases were in Other manufacturing (by 15.6%), Textile, clothing, footwear and leather manufacturing (by 10.5%), and Non-metallic mineral product manufacturing (by 8.3%).
