Statistical population

Committee Population (FRAME) describes the population from which the sample to IT services is drawn. FRAME includes all IT enterprises in the Business Register System, which are active in the extraction time. (Active enterprises are enterprises, which have paid in wage and salary for employees corresponding to at least 0.5 man-year and/or have had calculated earnings of a certain volume.)

Target population describes the population as respondents (the selected IT enterprises) shall be estimated to. The target population includes all IT enterprises in the Business Register System, which are active when estimation/calculation is carried out. There may be situations where some enterprises are located in FRAME but not in the target population. This is due to business closure or industry changes between the draw of FRAME and the target population. Similarly, it can also happen that there are some enterprises in the target population but not in FRAME, because data in the target population are updated with recent and new information, thus the target population could include new enterprises.

FRAME 2018 for IT services includes about 1760 enterprises. Furthermore the FRAME is bounded so enterprises that have under five full-time employees, are sorted out. The total number of enterprises in the FRAME 2020 is estimated to 1760. The target population for IT services is estimated to 14250 enterprises.
