About the data

The datasets used here are from the Business Structure Database (BSD) and the UKCES Employer Skills Survey 2013. The BSD is produced by the Office of National Statistics (ONS) and is an annual snapshot of the Inter-Departmental Business Register (IDBR), which is a live register of data collected by HM Revenue and Customs via VAT and Pay as You Earn (PAYE) records.

Some of the UK statistical data used in this report is from the ONS and is Crown copyright and reproduced with the permission of the controller of HMSO and the Queen’s Printer for Scotland. The use of the ONS statistical data in this work does not imply the endorsement of the ONS in relation to the interpretation or analysis of the statistical data.

The small business metrics were developed for the UK regions used in the heatmap by Professor Mark Hart, Professor of Small Business and Entrepreneurship at Aston Business School and Deputy Director of Enterprise Research Centre School and Karen Bonner, Senior Research Fellow in the ERC.
