Warning

The introduction of the “Déclaration Sociale Nominative” (DSN) to replace the “bordereau récapitulatif de cotisations” (BRC) may affect transitorily the declarative behavior of businesses. During the ramp-up phase of the DSN, adjustments are made in the statistical processing chain of employment estimates to reflect these changes. These changes are likely to generate more revisions than usual to data.
