Statistical Business Register in the CIS countries

21st meeting of the Wiesbaden Group

November 2008, Paris

Presentation by Vitalija Gaucaite Wittich, UNECE

Overview

Overview

1. Use of statistical business registers (BR)

2. Sources for statistical BR

3. Activity classifications in use

4. Coverage of statistical units

5. Enterprise groups - the new challenge


1 use of statistical brs

1. Use of statistical BRs

Widespread:

For grossing up survey results, survey editing & imputation, for data tabulation and as a source for R&D statistics

Rarely used:

For production of data on business demography,

for deriving economic statistics


1 use of statistical brs continued

1. Use of statistical BRs (continued)

Progress can be seen, albeit indirectly:

  • Gradual expansion of the list of recorded variables – i.e. the date of cessation of activities, not recorded before, is mentioned among the variables in six countries in 2008 Survey

  • Improved coverage and timeliness of various records – the reference periods of reported data are more recent in the 2008 Survey

  • Actions/plans of implementing revised economic activity classifications - the gradual approach in the implementation, use of double recording and back-casting; collaboration with other register-keepers


2 variety of sources for statistical brs

2. Variety of sources for statistical BRs


2 variety of sources for statistical brs continued

2. Variety of sources for statistical BRs (continued)

Changes recorded by the 2008 Survey:

  • Single administrative BR: + 3 countries

  • Surveys on BR update: - 2 countries

  • Tax authorities data: + 2 countries

  • Central bank data: - 1 country

  • No change regarding the use of Published accounts, Chamber of Commerce or Customs registries


3 activity coding

3. Activity coding

Implementing new economic activity classification


3 activity coding continued

3. Activity coding (continued)

Implementing new economic activity classification:

  • Automatic recoding is expected to cover from 25% to 35% of the statistical units, while the rest will be recoded manually

  • Double coding for at least three years is foreseen

  • Intentions to coordinate introduction of the Revised activity classification in the Single administrative business registers and other administrative sources


4 coverage of statistical units

4. Coverage of statistical units

Percentage change of unit population, BRQ 2006 - BRQ 2008


4 coverage of statistical units continued

4. Coverage of statistical units (continued)

Average number of occupied persons per registered enterprise

* Data refer to 2004 and 2006


4 coverage of statistical units continued1

4. Coverage of statistical units (continued)

Registered enterprises, BRQ-2008 by sections of NACE Rev. 1

* Legal units


4 coverage of statistical units continued2

4. Coverage of statistical units (continued)

In general:

  • Many countries have a good coverage of the incorporated units

  • The coverage of small businesses and individual entrepreneurs is rather insufficient

  • There are special registers for the agricultural sector in some countries

    Specific:

  • In Belarus, Moldova and the Russian Federation– the legal unit is identical to the enterprise

  • In Armenia, Georgia and Moldova local units are not yet included in the statistical BR


5 enterprise groups the new challenge

Enterprise groups (EGR) – be it all-resident or multinational ones - are not yet monitored for statistical BR purpose

Few exceptions as reported in the 2006 and 2008 UNECE Surveys by:

Kyrgyzstan

Russian Federation

Tajikistan

5. Enterprise groups – the new challenge


5 enterprise groups the new challenge continued

5. Enterprise groups – the new challenge(continued)

  • Kyrgyzstan’s information refers to foreign-controlled enterprises/legal units without explicit link to any EGR. It is exclusively based on administrative sources. No entries in the statistical BR.

  • The Russian Federation reports only on the overall number of all-resident enterprise groups:

    • Total 44’219 EGRs incorporating 401’850 legal units (01.01.2007)

    • Few basic variables are recorded in statistical BR

    • Main source: Single administrative Business register

    • Multinational EGRs to be included starting 2009

  • Tajikistan’s statistical BR contains some information on the multinational EGRs sourced from both administrative sources and statistical surveys.


5 enterprise groups the new challenge continued1

5. Enterprise groups – the new challenge(continued)

Multinational Enterprise Groups


5 enterprise groups the new challenge continued2

5. Enterprise groups – the new challenge(continued)

Harmonising methodological approaches with those accepted internationally is the way ahead

Countries should look for best practices on:

  • profiling of large and complex enterprises

  • delineation of enterprise groups

  • reviewing principal and secondary activity coding

  • cooperation with central banks, commercial data providers, etc.
