The Enterprise Surveys (ES) team has released new survey data for Belgium, Luxembourg, and South Africa. In addition to the core questions included in all standard ES, the Belgium and Luxembourg surveys have questions on business-government relations, management practices, technology adoption, and COVID-19; while the South Africa survey has questions on skills, competition, and COVID-19.
The ES team has also released the second round of the ES follow-up survey data which measures the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on businesses for El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Jordan, Malta, and Nicaragua. These surveys re-interview, for the second time, the respondents of the 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 44 countries. The data are released as soon as they become available.
Additionally, panel data for Zambia 2007-2013-2019, and the combined panel data for the MENA region (last two rounds of ES) are also 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. By analyzing detailed information on more than 6,000 private firms in the manufacturing and services sectors, the report provides fine-grained insights into the key drivers of firms’ performance and the major challenges of the business environment in which they operate.
We are currently gathering data in 14 countries around the world.
