The Measurement of Labour Productivity using the Annual Enterprise Survey and LEED: Results of a data integration and data quality assessment
In 2006/07 data from the Annual Enterprise Survey (AES) were linked to data from the Linked Employer-Employee Database (LEED), and firm-level measures of labour productivity and financial performance were constructed. An assessment was then made of the strengths and weaknesses of these linked data for research purposes. The overall purpose of this feasibility study was to explore the benefits that may be gained from linking business data with LEED.
The report of the feasibility study covers issues such as the size and representativeness of the AES sample; whether AES can provide a representative longitudinal sample for use in longitudinal analysis; the longitudinal correlation of AES responses; the quality of the match obtained between AES and LEED records; and whether labour productivity measures that are constructed using AES measures of value-added and LEED employment data are comparable with other firm-level labour productivity measures.
