Methodology of the EUCOWE Project


"In this chapter the methodology of the EUCOWE project is presented. First in Section 2.2 the theoretical and methodological issues concerning the input harmonisation are reviewed. Section 2.3 deals with the design of the company survey. The observational unit, the gross and net sampling, the response rates, the organisation of the field work and the data cleaning and control for data inconsistency are addressed. In Section 2.4 the measures and formulae applied in the EUCOWE project to calculate the operating hours are defined and justified. Section 2.5 discusses the measurement of the decoupling of operating time and working time and the measurement of capacity utilisation. Methodological issues with regard to the relationship between operating hours and employment are discussed in Section 2.6, which draws this chapter to a conclusion."
