Derivation of Statistical Units (Theme)


This module describes the derivation of the main statistical units which should be made available in a Statistical Business Register (SBR) in order to be used in the production of statistics.

The following units are described: Enterprise Group, Enterprise and local unit. Enterprise groups are a combination of one or more enterprises which operate in certain location (local units). Where the enterprise group is the unit for making statistics concerning financing, the enterprise is aimed at production and the local unit divides the information on enterprise level into geographical parts.

The enterprise group is often first determined based on the result of finding the largest combination of legal units under common control. These enterprise groups have one or more market oriented activities which they carry out. Often these activities will result in enterprises. The enterprises carry out their activities on specific locations. Based on the different locations of the enterprises where the actual activities are carried out, it is possible to derive local units.
