Detail

In separate studies, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and Aston University have investigated a number of demographic characteristics of mid-sized businesses and compared them to those of smaller and larger enterprises. BIS have used the inter-departmental business register (IDBR) and Aston University has used the Office for National Statistics’ (ONS) Business Structures Database (BSD), a longitudinal version of the IDBR. The strength of the IDBR and BSD are their near universal coverage of all firms in the UK, albeit for a limited range of firm characteristics (employment, turnover, location and industry sector).

BIS analysis from the inter-departmental business register (IDBR) broken down by a range of MSB and non-MSB turnover size categories (2010 or 2011), includes:

  • counts of enterprises broken down by industry, region and limited to the ‘private sector’
  • employment and turnover broken down by region and industry
  • count, employment and turnover broken down by Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and sector

Aston University analysis of the ONS Business Structure Database (BSD) for private-sector enterprises broken down by a range of MSB turnover size categories (1997 to 2010), includes:

  • enterprise counts and turnover broken down by enterprise size, industry sectors and at 2 digit SIC
  • distribution of turnover per employee
