Size of Firms in London, 2001 to 2012
This article presents analysis of numbers of workplaces and employees in London and its 33 local authorities, broken down by enterprise size band and SIC 2007 industry sector, for the period 2001 to 2012. The figures are calculated using data from the Inter-Departmental Business Register (IDBR). Although workplaces and employees are counted at local level, the methodology uses enterprise size bands that are based on numbers of employees working for the enterprise in the UK as a whole. Thus it is possible answer questions like ‘How many employees work for large retailers in Tower Hamlets?’ and ‘How has this changed over the past decade?’
