Survey on the Use of ICT and e-commerce in Companies 2016–2017
The Survey on the Use of Information and Communication Technologies and E-Commerce in Companies (ETICCE) provides knowledge of the situation of Catalan companies in relation to the provision and use of ICT and e-commerce. This is an annual sample-based survey conducted by the INE in all of Spain and that provides information on some indicators on an autonomous community level. Idescat extends upon the results offered by this operation for Catalonia and guarantees comparability of these results with those for other autonomous communities, Spain and other countries.
The published information is structured by differentiating between companies with 10 or more employees and those with less than 10 employees.
The results for the companies with 10 or more employees are disaggregated by the size of the company in terms of number of employees and activity sectors. The reference period for the variables on infrastructures, equipment and use of ICT is the first quarter of the year in which data was collected (2017), while the reference period for the variables on the use of e-commerce, interaction with Public Administration, staff specialized in ICT, Big Data analysis, invoicing and data on general business information is the whole of 2016.
