Statistical concepts and definitions

In the context of this survey, sourcing refers to the total or partial movement of business functions by an

enterprise to another enterprise. This term relates to the well-known term outsourcing (sourcing outside of the enterprise group) and the less known term insourcing (sourcing within the enterprise group). It is important to note that prior to being sourced in the reference period, these functions were performed in the enterprise (the statistical unit enterprise). On the other hand, if an enterprise has been purchasing a business function (e.g. as a purchase of services) since its creation, then there is no sourcing involved.

There are three basic concepts:

  • Domestic sourcing : refers to the total or partial movement of business functions by a French enterprise to another French enterprise.

  • International sourcing : refers to the total or partial movement of business functions by a French enterprise to a foreign enterprise, belonging or not to the same enterprise.

  • Intern international sourcing : refers to the total or partial movement of business functions made abroad to a French enterprise, belonging or not to the same enterprise.
