This report presents a broad statistical overview of Small, Medium, and Micro Enterprises (SMMEs) in the Eastern Cape. It uses Statistics South Africa’s data from both, the Quarterly Labour Force Survey (QLFS, 2020), and the Quarterly Financial Statistics Survey (QFS, 2020) to develop a profile of SMMEs in the province. The report follows a similar methodology as the Department of Trade and Industry (dti), the Bureau of Economic Research (BER) and Small Enterprise Development Agency (seda) to derive a proxy for the number of SMMEs. The aim of the report is to provide data to prospective researchers and policy analysts on a wide spectrum of indicators on SMMEs.
