Enterprise Surveys provide the world's most comprehensive company-level data in emerging markets and developing economies. Data are available on 130,000+ firms in 135 countries. Data are used to create indicators that benchmark the quality of the business and investment climate across countries. Visit Enterprise Surveys on Facebook.
Subnational Doing Business
Subnational and Regional Doing Business reports capture differences in business regulations and their enforcement across locations in a single country or region. They provide data on the ease of doing business, rank each location, and recommend reforms to improve performance in each of the indicator areas.
Women, Business and the Law
Women, Business and the Law measures how laws, regulations and institutions differentiate between women and men in ways that may affect women’s incentives or capacity to work or to set up and run a business. It analyzes legal differences on the basis of gender in 143 economies, covering seven areas: Accessing Institutions, Using Property, Getting a Job, Providing Incentives to Work, Building Credit, Going to Court and Protecting Women from Violence.
