About the statisticsOpen and readClose

The data is collected electronically from the Directorate of Taxes.

A self-employed person is a person who conducts business at his or her own risk. Married couples are counted as two self-employed persons when they share the taxable entrepreneurial income. One self-employed person can run more than one business. The self-employed are classified by whether their main income comes from industries or wages and pensions.
