The objective of the Annual Trade Survey is to ascertain the structural and economic characteristics of companies involved in activities related to sale and repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles, wholesale and retail trade, and trade intermediaries.

This statistic, governed by the Regulation 295/2008 of the Parliament and the Council of the European Union, provides information on the structural characteristics of trade sector companies, such as size and economic data (income and expenditure), as well as the employment and investment structure.

In order to improve the structural surveys processes on companies, the “Integration Project of the Structural Business Statistics” has been implemented. This project intends to use one integrated questionnaire, a harmonized sample design, a joint and simultaneous data collection, the homogenization of the development processes and the simultaneous dissemination for the three sectors of study (Industry, Trade and Services). This project is implemented as of the reference year 2015 on.
