*Definitions:

Enterprise Survey
An Enterprise Survey is a survey of firms that is meant to be representative of a country's non-agricultural economy. The sectors of business activity, using ISIC revision 3.1, include manufacturing (group D), construction (group F), services (groups G and H), transport, storage, and communications (group I), and IT which is subgroup 72 of group K. Firms with less than five employees are not surveyed. Interviews are conducted using the Manufacturing Module and the Services Module.

 

Micro Survey
A Micro Survey uses the Enterprise Survey and targets manufacturing and services firms with less than five employees (microenterprises).

 

Informal Survey
An Informal Survey uses a survey instrument designed for informal firms, i.e., unregistered businesses. For a given country, the business activity of interest varies according to the goals of policy makers.

 

Green Economy Survey
A Green Economy survey captures the environmental impact of establishments, how establishments are exposed to environmental policies, and how establishment's monitor their energy needs. The Green Economy module targets both manufacturing and services establishments.

 

Procurement
Procurement refers to the initial project phase where through the World Bank procurement system, private contractors can competitively bid to be awarded the contract. Typically market research firms are awarded the contract to conduct Fieldwork for the project. Procurement** indicates that procurement is being conducted by the EBRD.

 

Fieldwork
Fieldwork refers to the project phase where face-to-face interviews are being conducted in the field. Business managers are interviewed and survey data is entered into databases. During fieldwork, batches of data are sent to the Enterprise Analysis team as part of the quality control process. After completion of fieldwork, the data will be delivered to the Enterprise Analysis team for Data Standardization.

 

Data Standardization
Data Standardization refers to the final project phase where the Enterprise Analysis team is imposing the final quality control checks on the data and also standardizing the data so that cross country comparisons can be easily performed.
