The job of the Central Bureau of Statistics is to keep the Government and the community as a whole informed about trends and changes in our country and to do so, gathers statistical data on a regular basis and conducts surveys to gain insight into specific characteristics of our society.
To be able to study changes in the structure of enterprises, each year administrative data is gathered
from the tax authorities and supplemented by data received from the Social Security Bank.
This project is coordinated by Mr. J.A. Hernandez, B.Sc and is conducted in April and May of
each year. The current report presents the results of this research and gives a description of the
characteristics of the companies and the working population.
The Central Bureau of Statistics hopes that this publication will provide all the users with the
necessary information. For comments and further information, feel free to contact us.
