Supporting the Policy Environment for Economic Development

Enterprise Survey (INE)

The USAID TIP Project, together with funding from the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), worked with the Mozambican Statistics Agency (INE) and the Ministry of Planning and Development to undertake in-depth surveys that helped contribute to the strengthening of aggregate macroeconomic statistics.

These statistics are used as essential inputs into planning and policy development oriented to national development and poverty reduction. The project supported the 2006 and 2007 surveys, and helped produce a database of the Mozambican enterprise sector, which will permit: wide-ranging analysis of the enterprise sector at the national, sectoral and provincial levels; comparative analysis of future surveys; diagnosis of current conditions in the enterprise sector; evaluation of the current policy environment; formulation of improved policies to support private sector development; and compilation of statistics for the 2006 National Accounts.

The sample for the Enterprise Survey was drawn upon a population of enterprises registered in the Statistical Units File (FUE), established from the enterprise CENSUS of 2002. The term Enterprise should be understood as a legal unit that produces goods and services, and that enjoys certain degree of autonomy in decision-making regarding the use of its current resources.

The surveys had national coverage, but with focus on the following strategic points for the localization of economic units:

a) Provincial Capitals

b) Other cities with large concentration of economic units, and all the 33 municipalities in the country

c) Firms with large business activity and all the large investment projects, independently of their geographical location.
