These sectors are (for the private sector): industry; construction; commerce and hospitality; transport; financial services; and business, administration and other services; and (for the public sector): public administration and defence – compulsory social security; education; and public health. In each information sheet, aspects of establishment characteristics in the sector are compared with the EU28 as a whole.

The third ECS contains responses from 29,864 establishments across the 28 EU Member States.
