Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises: A Collection of Published Data, 2006

    The IFC offers a Database which gathers publicly available country-level data on micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) and presents them in an easily accessible format. This initiative is meant to be a work in progress, with updates and improvements made as new data become available.

    The database offers information by country on the definition of SMEs, the structure of the SME sector, SME participation in the economy, business registations, the business environment and the doing business indicators.

    The database from February, 2006 is provided here along with a companion note. For updates, see the website listed above.
