Publication(Washington, DC, 2013-01) World BankThe European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)- World Bank business environment and enterprise performance survey (BEEPS) is a joint initiative of the EBRD and the World Bank. The BEEPS have been carried out in five rounds: in 1999, 2002, 2005, and 2008; the 2011 is currently under implementation. The survey covers virtually all countries of Central and Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union, as well as Turkey. The BEEPS covers a broad range of issues about the business environment, and this note presents some simple indicators for key areas. BEEPS at-a-glance is deducted primarily to questions that are comparable across periods. The annex to the BEEPS at-a-glance document provides additional information on the comparability of indicators, specific differences and methods of calculation, if any. Key criteria for sampling were firm size, age, primary area of activity, and ownership of the firm. For a number of indicators, the number of firms that responded to a question is smaller than the overall country sample size. In most cases, the difference is attributable to preceding filter questions. This note focuses exclusively on the main BEEPS questionnaires for 2008 and 2011 and presents weighted averages or frequency distributions over all firms with non-missing data.
Publication(Washington, DC, 2010-01) World Bank GroupThe Business Environment and Enterprise Performance Survey (BEEPS), a joint initiative of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the World Bank, now in its 4th iteration, is a means for collecting firm-level data on broad range of issues about the business environment and performance of firms, including business-government relations, firm financing, labor, infrastructure, informal payments and corruption, and other topics such as training and innovation. The BEEPS at-a-Glance cross country report provides an at-a-glance view of all country and sub-regional values for selected indicators. Similar to the country profiles, the report highlights changes in indicator values over time. In addition, this report provides an expanded analysis of Problems Doing Business indicators, including ranks over time and differences across time. As the report shows, there is much variation across countries and sub-regions for specific indicators, and in some cases, certain countries stand out as leaders and laggards. The BEEPS has been carried out in four rounds: in 1999, 2002, 2005, and 2008 and covers virtually all of the countries of Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, as well as Turkey. This note focuses exclusively on the Main BEEPS questionnaires for 2005 and 2008 and presents simple averages over all firms with non-missing data. Many apparent changes over time may not be statistically significant. The Annex provides descriptions and definitions of the regional and sub-regional comparators.
