The Enterprise Surveys (ES) team has released new survey data for Azerbaijan and Romania. The data were collected in partnership with EBRD and EIB, with additional support from the EU for the Romania survey. In addition to the core questions included in all standard ES, these surveys have questions on the green economy, regulatory governance, and the use of managers’ time.
The ES team has also released ES follow-up survey data which measures the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on businesses for thirteen countries, namely Albania, Armenia (covering Micro enterprises), Chad, Cyprus, Georgia, Greece, Guinea, Italy, Niger, the Russian Federation, Togo, Zambia and Zimbabwe (including Micro enterprises). These surveys re-interview 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 similar, ongoing surveys in 39 countries. The data are released as soon as they become available.
Additionally, panel data for Lithuania 2009-2013-2019 and Egypt 2004-2007-2008-2013-2016-2020 are now available. All datasets are available on the data portal. The status of several Enterprise Surveys can be found on the current projects page.
This report presents the findings of Enterprise Surveys conducted in eight economies in the region in 2013 and 2014: Djibouti, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia, the West Bank and Gaza, and Yemen.
