Current Projects

The Enterprise Analysis Unit of the World Bank Group is currently conducting surveys in 106 economies listed in the table below. The table provides information on the type of survey, project phase, and estimated date of data delivery for each economy.


Types of surveys include:

  • Enterprise Surveys: a standard establishment-level survey that is representative of the non-agricultural, non-extractive private sector, covering registered establishments with 5 or more employees. The Methodology page contains technical details, including sectoral coverage.

  • Informal Sector Enterprise Surveys: a survey of unregistered businesses. All business activities are covered, including any production or service activity that is sold, traded or bartered with another party.

  • Micro Enterprise Surveys: a survey of Micro Enterprises – registered establishments with less than five employees.

Project phases include:

  • Preparation: the initial project phase for laying groundwork for fieldwork.

  • Procurement: hiring a survey firm via a competitive selection process.
  • Fieldwork: the project phase where face-to-face interviews with business owners or top managers are being conducted.
