Example text

1. Analysis of our panel survey, and of leavers and joiners, shows that the recent rise in the proportion of independent establishments is chiefly due to their relatively high incidence among establishments that have joined the population. Establishments leaving the population between 1990 and 1998 were quite similar to continuing workplaces, around one fifth of each comprising independent establishments. However, joiners were quite different, with one third (34 per cent) being independent. The principal cause lay in the high proportion of independent establishments (42 per cent) among workplaces joining private sector services, compared with establishments from this sector that left the population (19 per cent).

Continued growth in output after our 1984 survey was accompanied by a gradual fall in the unemployment rate. However, the rate of growth in GDP finally began to tail off in both manufacturing and service industries after 1988, with the economy finally entering a deep recession in the second quarter of 1990, just after fieldwork for the third survey in the series had begun. The third survey therefore came slightly earlier in the cycle than our first survey in 1980. Conditions for the fourth survey in 1998 were much closer to those seen for the second survey in the series.

2 shows that continuing workplaces accounted for 64 per cent of the 1998 population of workplaces with twenty-five or more employees, new workplaces for 19 per cent and workplaces that grew into scope for 17 per cent. By comparing the characteristics of ‘joiners’ with those of our continuing workplaces in 1998, we are able to investigate whether those workplaces that joined the survey population were in some way distinct from those that had remained in operation since 1990. If they were found to be distinct in some way, this would clearly be important since the proportion of the 1998 population accounted for by ‘joiners’ (36 per cent) was considerable, certainly being larger than the proportion of the 1990 population accounted for by ‘leavers’ (28 per cent).
