Subject Predicate Object <p>The legal units surveyed are French units, which are active, commercial, and operating, with less than 10 persons employed (non-salaried persons are included in the workforce), excluding the public sector (legal category starting with 7).<br /> The enterprises belong to the following sectors of NACE rev. 2:<br /> - manufacturing (section C)<br /> - electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply (section D)<br /> - water supply ; sewerage, waste management and remediation activities (section E)<br /> - construction (section F)<br /> - wholesale and retail trade ; repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles (section G)<br /> - transportation and storage (section H)<br /> - accommodation and food service activities (section I)<br /> - information and communication (section J)<br /> - real-estate activities (section L)<br /> - professional, scientific and technical activities exc. veterinary activities (divisions 69 to 74)<br /> - administrative and support service activities (section N)<br /> - repair of computers and communication equipment (group 95).</p> <p>The ICT-TPE 2012 survey revealed that the survey is not relevant for some units with no economic activity and more often than not with no employees. Thus, the following units are excluded from the area of the survey on the basis of their legal category (LC):<br /> - LUs in the form of non-trading real estate company  (CJ='6540').<br /> - LUs in the form of partnerships (SNC -- CJ='5202') and the economic interest groupings (EIG -- CJ='6210' or '6220').<br /> - Associations (CJ='9220') whose turnover at launch is zero or non-existent or whose number of employees is zero or non-existent in the baseline survey.</p> <p>Other units are also excluded:<br /> - Sole traders.<br /> - The legal units within the scope of the profiled enterprises surveyed in the ICT 2016 survey - they are considered to have already been covered in the survey of enterprises with 10 or more persons employed.<br /> - Units created after 31/12/2015, as well as non-active units at 31/12/2015 - this makes it possible to avoid surveying companies that are too young (that have not yet started operations, or have done so too recently to be able to complete the survey).</p>
