Entrepreneurship statistics

Review paper by Eurostat and OECD

In-depth review of entrepreneurship statistics

The Bureau reviewed entrepreneurship statistics in October 2013, and noted that the data on entrepreneurship are often not comparable between countries, partially due to the differing legal basis, social and cultural aspects, market conditions, access to finance and knowledge.

 

Outcome of the review

The Bureau asked the CES Task Force on statistical business registers to address the issues raised that also relate to business registers. The Bureau will discuss possible further work at an upcoming meeting.

Related initiatives

The OECD/Eurostat Entrepreneurship Indicators Programme (EIP) is aimed at the development of policy-relevant and internationally-comparable indicators of entrepreneurship and its determinants.


The joint UNECE/Eurostat/OECD Expert Group on Business registers meets every second year to discuss methodological issues in business registers. Its decisions also sometimes influence possibilities for compiling high quality entrepreneurship statistics.
