Business Data



Inter Departmental Business Register (IDBR) - UK Business Activity

The Inter-Departmental Business Register (IDBR) is a list of UK businesses maintained by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).It provides a sampling frame for surveys of businesses carried out by the ONS and by other government departments. It is also a key data source for analysis of business activity.

The IDBR covers businesses in all parts of the economy, missing some very small businesses operating without VAT or PAYE schemes (self employed and those with low turnover and without employees) and some non-profit organisations, representing nearly 99 per cent of UK economic activity.

The data comes from the UK Business Activity publication, which is a snapshot of the IDBR as at March 28th of each reporting year.

Statistical units

A group of legal units under common ownership is called an enterprise group.An enterprise is the smallest combination of legal units (generally based on VAT or PAYE) which has a certain degree of autonomy within an enterprise group.An individual site (for example factory or shop) in an enterprise is called a local unit.

Observation unit

Reporting units hold the mailing address to which the survey forms are sent. The form can cover the enterprise as a whole, or parts of the enterprise identified by lists of local units.

Links

ONS have produced an IDBR page on thier website which includes A brief guide to IDBR

IDBR for Local Authorities can be downloaded from the ONS Neighbourhood Statistics Analysis webpage and selecting IDBR analysis to support Local Authorities. Please note that the data are based on the 2007 Standard Industry Classification system, which is not compatible to SIC 2003.

 

Business Register and Employment Survey

The Business Register and Emloyment Survey (BRES) has replaced and integrated two existing ONS business surveys, the Annual Business Inquiry (ABI) and Business Register Survey (BRS) and is a sample survey of approximately 80,000 businesses.
The BRES currently provides information on four measures of employment status, as shown in the Table. BRES also provides Industry data using the 2007 Standard Industrial Classification (SIC 2007) to define industry sectors. The following spreadsheet provides data by ONS broad industry sectors and sections.

Further information
Subject to BRES disclosure protocol it is possible to extract data down to Lower layer Super Output Areas and 5-digit Industry divisions. However, at this level of detail the reliability of the data becomes an issue and will most likely be confidential. As a rule of thumb any BRES data below local authority district level should be used with extreme care.

Business Demography

Business Demography- Age of Business

Office for National Statistics Business Demography Active Enterprises, Births and Deaths data replaces the former BERR VAT Registration data for 2007 onwards. The key difference between the BERR statistics and the new ONS Business Demography publication is the inclusion of PAYE registered units thereby providing a more comprehensive view of business start-up activity. A more detailed description can be found on the Notes tab on the Business Demography file.

The data also includes age of business using four age bands from less than 2yrs old to 10 or more years. Earlier data can be accessed from Neighbourhood Statistics.
