Structural Business Statistics

Structural business statistics (SBS) describe the structure of economic activities, by observing the units engaged in certain activities.

SBS provide data for analysing the structure and the evolution of the activities of business entities (distribution of production value, value added, employment, etc. across different activities), the factors of production used (number of employees, personnel cost, investment in tangible goods) and other elements allowing business activity, performance and competitiveness to be measured.

This enables monitoring of the operations and the structural changes of the business entities, which constitutes the basis for market analysis and business decision-making, as well as for the assessment of basic macroeconomic indicators.
