Methodological aspects

Setting up, winding up and capital increases in commercial companies are variables which have high variability (especially in terms of monthly data), but they are useful indicators which are obviously linked to the economic situation and the expectations of economic actors.

They are drawn up using information provided by the Central Companies Registry about the founding (and winding up) of commercial companies and about the number of such companies which have increased their capital and the value of this increase.

The reference used for these statistics is the date of publication in the Official Gazette of the Companies Register (B.O.R.M.E.)

Unavailable information is represented using the symbol ":". When the value is lower than that of the minimum unit to be able to estimate the statistical operation or if it effects statistical confidentiality, the symbol used is "..".
