The preliminary figures for number of enterprises, turnover and employment are published while data are still being revised and may therefore deviate somewhat from final figures published at a later date. While preliminary figures are published on the enterprise level only, final figures are published on both the enterprise level and the local kind-of-activity unit level.
The method for calculating employment was changed in 2005. Because of this, employment figures for 2005 are not directly comparable with the figures for 2004. For more information, see About the statistics .
The statistics is now published as Business statistics.
