Enterprises can be classified in different categories according to their size; for this purpose different criteria may be used (e.g. number of persons employed, employees, balance sheet total, investments,...), but the one most common in a statistical context is number of persons employed:
• micro enterprises: fewer than 10 persons employed;
• small enterprises: 10 to 49 persons employed;
• medium-sized enterprises: 50 to 249 persons employed;
• large enterprises: 250 or more persons employed.
The number of persons employed should not be confused with employees or full-time equivalents; 'persons employed' includes employees but also working proprietors, partners working regularly in the enterprise and unpaid family workers.
