Business register surveys
Data on all multiple-establishment enterprises employing at least 10 persons and on large, single-establishment enterprises are collected annually with the Business Register's own surveys. Units of small enterprises are surveyed by means of a sample stratified by industry. Established new enterprises are usually included once in the survey of new enterprises fairly shortly after the start of their operation.
Data are obtained with own surveys on distributions of employees and turnover between establishments, on industries and on the location addresses of establishments. Numbers of employees are estimated from data on wages and salaries for enterprises not included in the surveys.
