Stats E – Innovative enterprises study 2018
The integration of survey data with administrative data has enabled Statistics Portugal, under conditions of appropriate protection of statistical confidentiality, a fundamental principle of official statistics, to build a powerful enterprise database: the Stats E
The Stats E
, according to our best knowledge, is already one of the most advanced enterprise database in international terms. Its analytical exploration is still under development from three perspectives:
- exploitation for a more efficient production of existing official statistics;
- design of new official statistics which are made available at an early stage in STATSLab;
- support for scientific research.
This study corresponds to the first perspective mentioned and aims to illustrate the analytical possibilities associated with the exploitation of Stats E
, showing how innovation, sector of activity, enterprise size-class (levels of persons employed) and human resources qualifications are related. In particular, the results obtained by the Community Innovation Survey (CIS) are related to the characteristics, of the same enterprises in that survey, available under the Integrated Business Accounts System (IBAS), Single Report (SR) and Survey on ICT Usage and E-commerce in Enterprises (IUTICE).
Information dedicated to the relative performance of innovative and non-innovative enterprises in High and medium-high technology sectors is also presented, which include the sectors of High-technology industries, Medium-high technology industries and High-tech knowledge-intensive services sector.
Survey on the Identification of Qualifications Needs in Enterprises 2020
Statistics Portugal presents the main results of the Survey on the Identification of Qualifications Needs in Enterprises. This is a survey conducted for the first time in the National Statistical System, promoted by Statistics Portugal between March and June this year in collaboration with ANQEP(Agência Nacional para a Qualificação e o Ensino Profissional) and DGEEC (Direção-Geral de Estatísticas da Educação e Ciência), with the year 2020 as reference, which allowed to obtain 4 313 valid answers (73,2% of the sample).
Considering that the results obtained may reflect the exceptional moment that economic activity has faced, given that the period of response to this survey began a week before the declaration of the state of emergency and lasted until the end of June, it was chosen to publish this information in this space, considering that the results in another context could be different, although this information still allows to identify the most needed qualifications in the next 2 years by the Portuguese enterprises.
Census with administrative data
To celebrate the European Statistics Day (20 October), Statistics Portugal announces the progress of the Census with administrative data to be executed after the 2021 Census. This project is part of the National Data Infrastructure that embodies Statistics Portugal's strategy of integration and value creation for society from different data sources. Central to the project is the constitution of the Resident Population Database covering a set of characteristics - geographical, demographic and socio-economic - of the resident population in Portugal and results from the integration of information from various sources of the public administration.
