This data cover the “non-financial business economy”, which includes industry, construction, trade and services ( NACE Rev 2  sections B to J, L, M and N ), but not enterprises in agriculture, forestry, and fisheries and the largely non-market service sectors such as education and health. The advantage of using Eurostat data is that the statistics are harmonised and comparable across countries. The disadvantage is that for some countries the data may be different from those published by the National Authorities.
