III. Accounting Conventions
All variables are compiled from administrative data except for investment variables within the scope of Annual Industry and Service Statistics. For the investment variables that cannot be compiled from administrative data, field operation is made with Annual Industry and Service Statistics Investment Expenditure Survey Questionnaire.
While compiling Annual Industry and Service Statistics Investment Expenditure Survey both full enumeration and sampling methods are used.
: All the enterprises are covered by sectoral coverage.
Business Registers are used for Annual Industry and Service Statistics Survey as a frame.
: Sampling unit is enterprise. An enterprise can be constituted by either more than one local unit or only one local unit. In case of the enterprise constituted by only one local unit, this local unit is enterprise itself.
The aim of Annual Industry and Service Statistics Investment Expenditures Survey is to produce information based on enterprise. For all sectors, in terms of enterprise NACE Rev.2 (4-digit) class level estimations for Turkey is planned to be reached.
Definitions and Concepts:
Number of enterprises:
The number of enterprises is count of all units that active at the sectors in coverage of Annual Industry and Service Statistics during the reference period.
Number of persons employed:
This value is obtained by adding the annual average number of owners, partners and unpaid family workers and apprentices active in the enterprise to the annual average number of employees.
Number of employees:
The number of employees is count of persons who work for an employer and who have a contract of employment and receive compensation in the form of wages, salaries, fees, gratuities, piecework pay or remuneration in kind.
The number of employees converted into full time equivalents (FTE):
Figures for the number of persons working less than the standard working time of a full-year full-time worker, should be converted into full time equivalents, with regard to the working time of a full-time full-year employee in the unit.
Number of hours worked by employees:
The number of hours worked by employees represents the aggregate number of hours actually worked for the output of the observation unit during the reference period.
This value is obtained by adding the gross payments made to personnel and social security costs.

Stocks are recorded at purchaser’s prices exclusive of VAT if they are purchased from another unit, otherwise at production cost.
