Progress on SBS Manual
GOPA experts presented the draft version 2.0 of the Structural Business Statistics (SBS) Manual to the Members of Eurostat’s SBS/BD WG (held 7-8 June 2021). The Working Group welcomed the draft SBS Manual.
Currently, the draft version 3.0 is submitted for written consultation to the SBS/BD WG. The final approval by Eurostat and the Member States is expected in September 2021; and the SBS Manual will be published later this year.
The SBS Manual will be a valuable addition to the already existing, overarching European Business Statistics Manual and the European business statistics methodological manual for statistical business registers – 2021 edition.
