Enterprises by size

In all countries, the vast majority of enterprises (between 70% and 95%) are micro-businesses, i.e. enterprises with fewer than ten persons employed, and in most countries over half of all enterprises are non-employer enterprises, i.e. enterprises with no employees such as the self-employed who work on their own account and do not employ other persons.
