Research Paper

Business support and SME performance: exploratory analysis of the Longitudinal Small Business Survey 2015 and 2016 Research Paper No 70

This report presents findings from a study of the relationship between business support and Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (SME) performance. The analysis draws on two waves of data (2015, 2016) from the Longitudinal Small Business Survey (LSBS), a large-scale telephone survey of 15,502 SME employers (e.g. owners and managers).
The survey defines SMEs as businesses with between one and 249 employees, with further sub-group analysis based upon employment size: micro businesses (1-9 employees); small businesses (10-49 employees); and medium-sized businesses (50-249 employees). This report is delivered by the Enterprise Research Centre (ERC).
