Dernière mise à jour le : 11/01/2018

Présentation de l'opération

Type d'opération :

Strengthened exploitation of two administrative sources:

- the files of income annual statements of enterprises: Industrial and Commercial Profits System (BIC), Non-Commercial Profits system (BNC) or Agricultural Profits (BA);
- the annual declarations of social data (DADS).

These two sources being completed by the annual sectoral survey (ESA).

Objectifs :

The scheme ESANE allows to produce the structural business statistics.

It replaces both devices which worked before in parallel; the EAE (annual survey of companies) and Suse (Unified Corporate Statistics System). Since 2008 this new scheme produces "composite aggregates" calculated by a statistical estimation which "makes a synthesis" with fiscal data and survey data.

It also reduces the burden of response required from the enterprises (reduction of half of the questionnaire). It decreases production times to give the results more quickly.

Thèmes abordés :

The administrative files BIC, BNC, BA allow to get back accounting information on the company, the DADS supplies data on staff and their payments.

The survey ESA allows to obtain the "sectoral" information, unavailable in the administrative files, as for example data on the commercial equipment, the kind of customers or the nature of the works realized for the construction. It gives also information on the breakdown of the turnover of the enterprise according to its different activities.
