Selected Indicators - Methodological notes

The area of selected market services covers those entrepreneurial entities that provide paid services to businesses and the population.

Following the implementation of European legislation in short-term business statistics and due to the reduction of the burden on the business environment, the structure of the set of contacted intelligence units in the monthly statistical survey VTS 1-12 was changed.

Until the end of 2021, complete data were evaluated, even with the currently cancelled reporting obligation for divisions 85, 90 to 93, 95 to 96 of the Statistical Classification of Economic Activities SK NACE - other education and auxiliary educational activities, as well as art, entertainment and recreation, activities of gaming and betting offices, but also for other personal services (laundry and dry cleaning, hairdressing and beauty services, funeral services, services related to physical well-being and other services of a predominantly personal nature).

From the beginning of 2022, only the activities of divisions 68 to 82 are included in the classification of sales by type, which is based on the Statistical Classification of Economic Activities of the SK NACE.
