Survey on networks scope in retail and services

Paru le : 15/08/2018


The survey’s aim is to identify for each network head company, the list of members establishments depending on their different forms of organisation (franchise networks, concessions, purchasing groups).


A pilot survey was conducted in 2010 on 315 networks to validate the organisation of data collection and to initialise a networks register. This survey is one of several surveys dealing with trading and services. For the record, in addition the 2010 survey, the most recent surveys are the survey on retail trade networks in 2006-2007 and the survey on networks in services in 2008. The concept of “network” has been integrated to the Outlets retail survey in 2009.
