These data have been collected by applying advanced methodologies for social and economic studies covering representative samples of small and medium enterprises operating in Kosovo. The platform contains 72 variables, which cover a wide range of areas related to the development of the private sector such as enterprises’ performance and characteristics, capital investment and business practices, as well as barriers of doing business.
