Data Updates

The Enterprise Surveys (ES) team has released new survey data for Denmark. In addition to the core questions included in all standard ES, this survey has questions on business-government relations, management practices, technology adoption, and COVID-19.

 

The ES team has also released the third round of the ES follow-up survey data which measures the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on businesses for Zambia and Somalia. These surveys re-interview the respondents of recently completed ES to collect information about closures (temporary or permanent), changes in sales, employment, and finance, along with policy responses, expectations, and other topics. The ES team has comparable, ongoing surveys in 46 countries. The data are released as soon as they become available. New data from Zimbabwe Informal Business COVID survey is also now available, aimed at measuring the impact of the pandemic on informal businesses in Zimbabwe.  Unlike the ES COVID follow-up surveys, this is a one-off data collection effort without a baseline survey.

 

All datasets are available on the data portal. The status of several Enterprise Surveys can be found on the current projects page.
