Reference/Data: The Future of Business Survey (Global Data From OECD)
The Future of Business Survey is a new source of information on small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Launched in February 2016, the monthly survey – a partnership between Facebook, OECD, and The World Bank – provides timely information on how firms with a digital presence assess the current state and future outlook of their business, the main challenges they face and their involvement in international trade.
The OECD participates in the design of the survey, which constitutes an innovative experiment of public-private partnership in data development and collection that contributes to deliver new insights on businesses in the digital economy. The survey currently covers 42 countries in developed and emerging economies, where the reference population are enterprises having a Facebook account.
