6 Tallinn, Novtember, 2005 INTERGRAF 6 How and what about SECTORAL Statistics in the EU ?! Poor and disappointing for a sector consisting mainly of SMEs ! EUROSTAT is in charge of : –establishing classifications (both activities NACE & products, CPA, Combined Nomenclature), –Regulations on collection of statistics, centralizing data. Source of data is either administrative (customs declarations, VAT returns) OR

7 Tallinn, Novtember, 2005 INTERGRAF 7 How and what about SECTORAL Statistics in the EU ?! Enquiries The “enquiry” source is the less efficient ! –Regulation plans for obligatory collection in companies employing more than 20 workers; significant loss of information for printing sector –Companies miss time and expertise to participate, questionnaires are complicated. PRODCOM : enquiry on production volume and value STRUCTURE OF BUSINESS : data on com- panies (number & employment), investment, utilization of production capacity

8 Tallinn, Novtember, 2005 INTERGRAF 8 How and what about SECTORAL Statistics in the EU ?! Individual national initiatives –Belgium : National Bank collects data –Printing national federations organize “opinion polls” : eg BPIF in UK, Febelgra in Belgium on various indicators (order books, paper price, sales prices), BVDM in De. –Results are produced as indexes, or bulletins
