N. B. : The change in legislation on April 2010, concerning the registration of the self-managed entrepreneurs artisans, has almost no more impact. The underestimation of the number of self-managed entrepreneurs births and the overestimation of the number of other entreprise births became insignificant in June and July 2010. Therefore, the distribution between the two has not been corrected for June and July 2010.
