Abstract

In this paper we describe the steps followed to build a new dataset covering the universe of active private non-financial firms in Italy between 2005 and 2014. The construction of the dataset is the outcome of a collaboration between the Bank of Italy and the Italian National Statistical Agency and made use of statistical, administrative and fiscal sources. The dataset, that contains information on firms’ location, legal form, date of incorporation, industry classification, employed persons, turnover and value added, is suitable for studying the evolution of the Italian productive sectors since the mid-2000s.

Keywords: Italy, firm-level data, dataset construction

JEL Classification: D29, J24, L00
