Small and Medium Enterprise Statistics Public Consultation
BERR are seeking views on how to improve the SME Statistics publication. The public consultation will run until 23 March 2009. All users are invited to submit their views. For more information please see the consultation document.
Content of the Small and Medium Enterprise Statistics
The SME Statistics include data on enterprises of all sizes, but contain more detail on enterprises in the smaller size-bands.
Data tables show the number of businesses, employment and turnover, in each category, broken down by the number of employees. Table 1 shows private sector, Table 2 shows Whole Economy - i.e. private sector / Government / non-profit, Table 3 shows companies / sole proprietorships / partnerships, and Tables 4-7 show breakdowns by the Standard Industrial Classification, with 7 being the most detailed. Where regional data are available, they appear in Tables 8 to 24.
SME Statistics 1994 to 2007
* Due to resource limitations the regional statistics are now only produced every other year. The next update to the regional statistics will be for SME Statistics 2009 in Summer 2010.
A WinZip file is also available here (2 mb) which contains the data tables from all the publications on this web site.
