Gross sample: 4709
Net sample: 3539
Response rate: 75,2%

Mode of Data Collection

Paper/pencil questionnaire

Weighting

The weights are made by stratification of the data for the five size groups and the nine business areas that the enterprises are divided into, this gave 45 different strata. Based on the known size of the population and the net sample, there was designed three different weighting factors. The first factor is the ratio between the number of enterprises in the population and the number of enterprises in the net sample. The second is the ratio between the turnover in the two samples, and the third is the ratio between the number of employees.

The model for the first factor is: x = the number of enterprises in a stratum
                                                   y = the number of enterprises in the net sample in the same stratum
The weighting factor for this stratum is given by the ratio x/y

The same factor is caluculated for the other strata.  
Weighting factors for turn over and number of employees are calculated based on the same method.
