About the statistics
The statistics include information from the tax returns of 339 486 self-employed persons. A self-employed person is a person who conducts business at his/hers own risk. Married couples conducting a business together are counted as two self-employed, even though they share the taxable entrepreneurial income. One self-employed can run more than one business. The persons are classified by whether their main incomes come from business or wage and pensions. More than half of the self-employed received their main income from wages and pensions in 2006.
