Purpose:
The Public Relations and Information department is a communications strategic policy instrument that plays an important role in ABS’s establishing and maintaining relevant contacts, both nationally and internationally.

Historical overview
In the past, it was mainly via the respective heads of the statistical departments and via the secretariat that ABS established and maintained its contacts with relevant groups of relations.
The fast-rising number of information requests and other significant social and technical developments led to an increasing need for a central entry point at ABS in relation to the distribution of information and the handling of requests for information.
To satisfy this need, in October 1998, we started standardising the Public Relations and Information department.

This department has since served as the central point to register and handle all information requests as soon as possible.

Not only does the growing number of such requests over the past few years reflect the increasing need for statistical information from both the national and the international communities, it may also be considered indicative of the need to optimise, wherever necessary, the way we communicate with the relevant target groups.

What does the PRI department have to offer to you?

  • It will answer your requests by telephone, in writing, by fax of email.
  • It has copying facilities available (for reproducing ABS material)

All data that we have at our disposal can be found in our Data Availability Matrixheidsmatrix.

We will be happy to respond to any requests for further information on Mondays to Fridays between 8am and 1.30pm.

We trust that we have given you some guidelines and we invite you to make use of our services.

The Census office was officially established on 1 June 2005, with the main objective of coordinating the activities surrounding the Census event.
The Census office produces statistics based on census results and supports the director of ABS / the National Census Officer in all activities concerning the preparation, implementation and evaluation of Population and Housing Censuses.
The Census office is a permanent unit within ABS and is headed by a manager entrusted with the management of the office, reporting directly to the director of ABS.

Examples of the main tasks of the Census office:

  • Helps prepare the questionnaire for the census
  • Compiling census publications
  • Handling information requests regarding census data
  • Help plan future censuses
  • Help plan intercensal surveys (i.e. related surveys held between two successive population censuses)
  • Help manage population census files

Together with the Population Statistics department, the Census office is also responsible for estimates of the mid-year population and population projections. In addition to this, it collaborates with the Household Surveys department in the area of cartography.

 

More information on and in relation to censuses:

In November 2001, GBS started its statistical papers. The purpose of these papers is to present analyses on subjects of social relevance.

The National Accounts (NA) department is dedicated to producing macroeconomic aggregates that enable analysing the economy of Suriname and its development.
National accounts is a system of accounts that gives a quantified overview of the economic process of a country in a particular year. The system is also referred to as national accounting or annual national accounts.

History of national accounts in Suriname
Activities aiming to compile national accounts started in March 1973. In January 1974, Suriname published its first national accounts, which were based partly on the system of the United Nations (System of National Accounts 68, SNA 68) and partly on the system of accounts of the Netherlands. From 1985, estimates adhered to SNA 68, while SNA93 was followed as far as possible from 2001. The base year was moved from 1980 to 1990. In 2012, with the technical support of the Caribbean Regional Technical Assistance Centre (CARTAC), the base year was moved to 2007. ABS in 2019 expects to move the base year from 2007 to 2015, with the technical support of the Project for the Regional Advancement of Statistics in the Caribbean (PRASC), and implement SNA 2008.

What is the purpose of national accounts?

  • Monitor the economy’s ‘behaviour’
  • Conduct economic analyses and research
  • Support economic policy-making & monitoring and decision-making
  • Make international comparisons

Some examples of key macro-economic aggregates:

  • Gross value added at current and constant prices
  • Gross domestic product
  • Gross national income
  • National income per capita
  • Disposable income

Estimation methods
According to SNA, there are three methods to measure macroeconomic aggregates:
the production method, the expenditure method and the income method.
The General Bureau of Statistics (ABS) currently uses the production method to estimate its aggregates.

Data sources:

  • The Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Husbandry and Fisheries;
  • The Ministry of Finance;
  • The Forest Management and Forest Supervision Foundation;
  • The Central Bank of Suriname;
  • The Planning Office
  • Enterprises / annual reports / research reports
  • Households and different ABS departments

Survey forms are used every year to establish what has been a company’s production value and subsequently deduce its added value. Data are mainly collected from large companies and, as a rule, collection is in written form. In many cases, repeated personal visits to companies are required to obtain their replies, which makes data collecting a time-consuming process.
In Suriname, the national accounts figures of any particular year are usually published about 6-9 months after the end of that year.

History

The General Bureau of Statistics (ABS) was founded on 1 January 1947, originally reporting directly to the Governor. Following a number of transfers to different ministries, it is currently attached to the Ministry of Finance. In December 2002, a new statistics act was adopted, providing for the establishment of a semi-autonomous body under the name of “Stichting Algemeen Bureau voor de Statistiek” (ABS – General Bureau of Statistics Foundation). By 14 March 2003, once included in the Register of Foundations, all conditions were fulfilled for ABS to start its operations.

Please refer to our website for further information on areas including:

  • Consumer price indexes (CPI)
  • Gross domestic product
  • Gross national income
  • Imports and exports
  • Unemployment figures
  • Population figures
  • Final results of the seventh and eighth general censuses of population and housing

The information on this website aims to increase the visitor’s statistical awareness.

You are welcome to visit or contact the Public Relations & Information department of ABS for further information.

Legal framework

The 1954 Statistics Act (Bulletin of Acts and Decrees, no. 67) constituted the legal framework for ABS operations for many years, until 13 March 2003.

The foundation’s legal framework is currently made up by the following legal instruments:

  • The Statistics Act – Bulletin of Acts and Decree- of 2002, no. 97 Read more.
  • The Census Act – Bulletin of Acts and Decree of 1949, no. 110 Read more.

Since it was first set up, ABS has been led by a director. In the present situation, the director reports to a foundation board comprising representatives of the public sector(1), the private sector(2), trade unions(2), the Central Bank of Suriname(1), the University of Suriname(1), the NGOs(1) and the Suriname Planning Office (“Stichting Planbureau Suriname”)(1).

ABS’s data production and distribution is independent and impartial and based on the use of adequate surveys and international methodologies.
In producing and distributing its data, ABS adheres to the Fundamental Principles of Official Statistics of the United Nations, which means, inter alia, that the confidentiality of the information provided is paramount. Read more.

The consumer price index (CPI) reflects the development of consumer prices of a fixed basket of goods and services (basic basket) over a particular period of time (basic period).
The composition of the basic CPI basket preferably follows a household budget survey.
Since 2003, it has been an ILO requirement to perform such surveys every five years. ABS seeks to comply with this requirement.
The survey preferably extends over a period of one year.
The current outlets or measuring points and the basic basket of goods and services are the result of the 2013/2014 household budget survey and are located in Paramaribo, Wanica, Nickerie, Coronie, Saramacca, Commewijne and Para.
Examples of outlets or measuring points are supermarkets, grocery stores, markets, clothes shops, shoe shops, other points (e.g. doctors).

The number of measuring points per domain

Domain Measuring points
Paramaribo & Wanica (ParWan) 170
Nickerie (inclusief Wageningen) 115
Coronie & Saramacca (CorSar) 105
Commewijne 120
Para 120
Total 630

The basic basket of these domains is compounded and the prices are measured almost daily in each domain.

Data collection
Data on the prices of goods and services is collected using standard survey forms that include a description of each item, as well as its number, weight and brand.
The measuring points are established through the household budget survey.
The collection of retail prices of the 316 goods and services from the basic package for household consumption is broken down as follows:
survey by head office (Paramaribo) for Paramaribo, Wanica, Saramacca and Para,
survey by Eastern Area office (Commewijne) for Commewijne,
survey by Western Area office (Nickerie) for Nickerie (including Wageningen) and Coronie.

 

Number of interviewers per office

Office Number of interviewers
Paramaribo 4
Eastern Area 2
Western Area 5
Total 11

 

Data processing

Each office enters and processes the data itself. The offices for the Eastern Area (Commewijne) and the Western Area (Nickerie) then submit the data to the CPI department of the head office in   Paramaribo, which has primary responsibility for the compilation of the price index and the inflation rate.
The retail prices included in the data are entered into an ACCES database.
A weighting coefficient (weighting factor) based on the household budget survey is assigned to each category of expenditure.
A weighting coefficient (weighting factor) reflects the relevance of each spending category in the overall (basic) basket.

The 316 items are then clustered into 11 main groups, the basic period being April 2016 – June2016.

NR Main groups Weightings (per 1 000)
1 Food and non-alcoholic beverages 313
2 Alcoholic beverages and tobacco 18
3 Clothing and footwear 39
4 Housing and utilities 229
5 Home furnishings 52
6 Healthcare 47
7 Transportation 123
8 Communication 43
9/10 Recreation, culture and education 34
11 Food away from home 8
12 Miscellaneous goods and services 94

Publication
The price index and inflation rate are published on or before the 22nd day of each month; they are sent by fax and/or email to the Vice President, the Ministers of Finance and Trade, Industry and Tourism, the Governor of the Central Bank and the President of the Statistics Commission one to two hours before they are made available to all other interested parties.
The information is available through the Public Relations & Information department from the day of its publication.
The information is also placed on the ABS website on the first workday following the day of its publication

Micro Data Lab
The GBS micro data lab allows bona fide researchers to use micro data produced by the ABS itself.

This implies that visitors of the micro data lab can make use of facilities such as:
Hardware
Software
Anonymous micro data

However, it should be noticed that any such use is subject to the stringent lab conditions in place.

Using the micro lab is not free of charge.

The micro data lab facilities (rooms, hardware and software) will not be open to users during
large-scale surveys or censuses, involving the entry of data and the entry of commercially based data from third parties.

SURINFO/SurinameCensusInfo and SurinameEnvironmentInfo

Purpose of the DevInfo database:
DevInfo is short for Development Information; this database is the result of a collaborative effort by UNICEF and the UN. From 2019, there has been a transition from DevInfo to the Dataforall platform.
Unlike the well-known SPSS, Excel and CSPro, this system is not a data processing tool, nor does it serve as a replacement for these programmes. Its function is rather to give presentations using tables, graphs and maps.
In the above databases, data is stored in a structured manner and presented on line.

The different versions of DevInfo are:

  • Childinfo 3.5 (1995-2003), UNICEF
  • DevInfo 4.0 (2004)
  • DevInfo 5.0 (2006)
  • DevInfo 6.0 (2008)
  • DevInfo 7.0 (2012-2018)
  • Dataforall (2019-…..)

SurInfo: Database containing GBS data and MICS data.
SurinameCensusInfo: Database containing data from the Census publications of 2004 and 2012.
SurinameEnvironmentInfo: Database containing data from the Environment statistics publication.

Environment statistics are important to provide a sound basis for decision-making, to monitor progress and to support public awareness with respect to the environment.

Purpose

  • Provide the presentation of data from various subject areas and sources. It is now globally accepted that the state of the environment is of fundamental importance to human survival. At the same time, the environment is subject to changes as a result of the way that human activities and natural events can have an impact on it. Therefore, environment statistics and environment indicators provide such information and enhance the policy making process to ensure that the present needs are met without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
  • incentive to research (national + international)
  • Comply with national, regional and international obligations / treaties (CARICOM, UNSD& SDGs)
  • Maintain publication frequency and awareness.

International Guidelines
For data collection the following guidelines were used;the CARICOM Core set that consists of 12 sectors and 61 indicators; the UNSD guidelines (FDES 2013) that consist of 6 components and 458 environment statistics; and the sustainable development goals (SDGs) that consist of 17 goals, 169 targets and 232 indicators.

Relevance
Environment statistics are important because they:

  • Reflect the state of affairs, quality and availability of natural resources
  • Represent human activities and natural events that influence the environment, the influences of these activities and events and the social consequences is a way to respond to questions from the wider public
  • Assist with the implementation, development and harmonization of environmental policies
  • Help to include environmental complaints into decision-making
  • Promote sustainable development, planning, public awareness and participation
  • Evaluate national environmental performance and policy.

The Environment Statistics publication consists of thirteen chapters. Each chapter begins with a brief introduction in which the environmental issues of the specific sector are explained. The information of each chapter is organized (loosely) according to the Pressure – State – Response framework; the issues in each chapter describe the pressure, the impact on the environment and the response.

The thirteen subject areas are:
(1) Demographic and socioeconomic background, (2) Climate and natural disasters, (3) Tourism, (4) Transport, (5) Environment and Health, (6) Water, (7) Energy and Minerals, (8) Forestry, (9) Coastal and Marine Resources, (10) Land use and Agriculture, (11) Biodiversity, (12) Air and (13) Waste.

Achievements

  • Workshops on environment statistics, with environmental organizations and ministries participating by providing environment data, discussing the draft publication, as well as considering the current state of affairs in relation to environment statistics.
  • Launch of the environment statistics publication (the 8th publication was launched in 2018)
  • Environment publications including environment related statistics from the millennium development goals and sustainable development goals
  • GBS is a member of the Technical Working Group of the United Nations for environment statistics (expert group meetings on environment statistics)
  • Since 2017, GBS has participated in the Technical Working Group of CARICOM for the CARICOM core indicators
  • Together with Jamaica and Belize, GBS is in the group of CARICOM countries that lead the way in the area of environment statistics.

The Scientific Research and Planning department of the General Bureau of Statistics (GBS) is tasked with compilation of the Gender Publication, since 2017 called Selected Statistics on women and men in Suriname.

The bureau thus contributes to the idea of gender. There is a great need for gender-focused statistics and attempts to satisfy this need have not always been successful. GBS seeks to collect as many statistics by gender as possible through its own surveys, as well as from external data sources, including a variety of organisations, institutions, ministries etc.

The data in this publication is broken down by gender in a number of tables and graphs.
The main areas are:

  • Education
  • Population and Health
  • Labour, Employment and Unemployment
  • Criminal Activity
  • Public Administration
  • Social Protection
  • Miscellaneous

It should be noted that a distinction must be made between the terms sex and gender. While sex refers to the innate biological differences between women and men, gender refers to the acquired social differences between women and men, such as behavioural patterns, roles, responsibilities, etc.

GBS strongly relies on external data sources. To the maximum extent possible, GBS seeks to present in its publication everything that is available and of an acceptable quality. This publication is issued every two years (in odd-numbered years).

It presents mostly secondary data from external sources.
The data is collected as follows:

  • in writing (by letter)
  • by email

The tables to be included in the publication are generally obtained in the desired format from the data providers. If the data is not available in the desired format, the raw data is sent to Scientific Research and Planning department to process it into the end result.

Some major sources are:

  • Ministry of Education, Science and Culture, Research and Planning department
  • Anton de Kom University of Suriname
  • Civil Registry Office
  • Ministry of Public Health
  • Public Healthcare Office
  • Ministry of Justice and Police, Criminal Information department

The publication “Suriname basic indicators” contains social, economic, financial and monetary indicators, including monthly and quarterly figures. The economic indicators are predominantly from the General Bureau of Statistics.

Basic indicators come in the following main categories:
1. Economic indicators
2. Financial indicators
3. Monetary indicators
4. Social indicators

The data is collected from the Consumer Price Index department and other sources on the basis of the basket of goods and services resulting from the 2007/2008 household budget survey. From April 2016, the consumer price index has been compiled using the results of the 2013/2014 household budget survey.
ABS receives its data on gross salaries paid from Suriname’s CEBUMA : Central Bureau for Electronic Administration (Cebuma). The data on child benefit and general old-age provision come from the Ministry of Social Affairs and Housing.

The Population Statistics department collects, processes and analyses population data, as well as several demographic indicators. The department’s purpose is to provide both the national and the international communities with population statistics. Population statistics give information on the size and composition of the population or parts of the population bysex, age group and other indicators. The information also covers the causes of population increase or decrease, namely births, deaths and migration.

Some of the simple indicators determined by the department every year include

  • (Crude) birth rate = (births / mid-year population) * 1000
  • Age-specific birth rate = (births among women in a particular age group / all women in the same age group) * 1000
  • Infant mortality rate = (deaths among infants aged under one year / no. of births) * 1000.
  • The department also makes an estimate of the mid-year population.

In September 2017, the Population Statistics department published Demographic Data 2013-2016. This publication contains data on population, births, deaths, marriages, divorces and migration

In addition to its regular activities, the department is closely involved in GBS projects (MICS, CENSUS, Household Budget Survey, Business Census), while working continually on the enriching and transferring of knowledge.

The Household Surveys department collects and processes socioeconomic data on family households and uses this data to prepare the publication Households in Suriname.
Household surveys have been conducted on a regular basis by the General Bureau of Statistics since 1986 and are continuous. They serve two purposes:
1. measuring and collecting labour statistics
2. collect basic demographic statistics on households.

The questionnaire includes questions on employment and other socioeconomic characteristics of households. Until mid-2009, the survey was only conducted in Paramaribo and Wanica (ParWan), but the district of Nickerie has since been included as a pilot,whilst from 2015, the survey has also been executed in the second pilot district of Commewijne.
Every quarter there is a new round of interviews, each time focusing on different households. The quarterly figures are processed and after approval, the annual figures are made available.

The household surveys are conducted by means of random sampling from “ressorten” of the districts of Paramaribo, Wanica, Nickerie and Commewijne.
For each of the samples taken, GBS interviewers ( enumerators) go into the field to ask households about their living conditions and employment situation. Since April 2018, tablets have been used for the datacollection during the household surveys (Computer-Assisted Personal Interviewing – CAPI).
The confidentiality of the data on individual households and persons is a legal requirement (2002 Bulletin of Acts and Decrees, no. 97 ) and is guaranteed by GBS through its compliance with the Fundamental Principles of Official Statistics of the United Nations.
The conceptual model underlying the collection of labour statistics is the internationally accepted Labour Force Model, adopted by the International Conference of Labour Statisticians (ICLS).
In September 2017, the Household Surveys department published Households in Suriname 2014-2016, Paramaribo and Wanica.
In addition to its regular activities, the department is closely involved in GBS projects (MICS, CENSUS, Household Budget Survey, Business Census), while working continually on the enriching and transferring of knowledge. Contact information of the department:

The Cartography Unit resides under the department of Household surveys.
The Unit is continuously updating (continuous process) the (basic) map of Suriname with the help of G.P.S waypoint registrations, Satellite photos (Bing map aerial) and information from various field inspections.
The Unit is also responsible for map production and offers support to various surveys of the ABS (Census, Household Budget Surveys, continuous Household surveys, Company counting) and helps with the screening / correction of samples as well as advising third parties, when it comes to Geographic (logistics) matters.

At the Cartography Unit the ArcGIS program is used with different layers, such as:

  • Country borders
  • District borders (according to Decree C-17)
  • Subdistrict “Ressort” borders (according to Decree A-26)
  • Roads
  • Rivers
  • Buildings
  • Enumeration block borders
  • Official legal geographical formats and the data must meet the conditions of the WGS_1984_UTM_ZONE_21N coordinate system.

The MI-GLIS and GISSAT are some of the relevant stakeholders with whom the Unit has contact, where necessary.

In addition to regular work, the Unit is also intensively involved in ABS projects (MICS, CENSUS, Household Budget Research, Business Valuation) while working continually on the enriching and transferring of knowledge.

The Trade Statistics department produces statistical data on imports and exports on an accrual basis according to various classification systems providing the national and international communities insight into the economic situation and development in the area of imports and exports in Suriname.
The data is sourced from the Import and Excise Duties department of the Ministry of Finance, for all imports and exports through the different landing piers and Johan Adolf Pengel Luchthaven and Zorg& Hoop airports.
This information on imports and exports is collected and processed in accordance with the Automated System of Customs Data, the so-called ASYCUDA WORLD system. It is collected from Customs every month and subsequently screened and processed by ABS.
Data processing is carried out by the Electronic Data Processing (EDP) department using the Ms AccesEurotrace Domain System. This system enables data collection according to the Harmonized System (HS) Classification model, Standard International Trade Classification (SITC) and the Economic Goods Group (EGG).
ABS receives requests for trade data from in and outside Suriname every day through its Public Relations and Information (PRI) department. Data is made available in compliance with an applicable international code of conduct, more specifically the Disclosure Prevention Policy (DPP) . DPP stipulates that no data may be provided in relation to any persons (natural persons and corporations) nor any other information in any form that would enable deducing individual information. In practice, this means that if there are fewer than three actors in any sector of industry or if one participant dominates 80% or more of the market in any particular sector of industry, ABS will not make the data available.

The General Bureau of Statistics (ABS) completed its final (4th) round of collecting data on prices of consumer goods on 30 November 2018.
The International Comparison Program (ICP project) is a global statistical partnership in which various countries participate. Its aim is to monitor the development of comparable price and volume data on goods and services among countries and across regions. ICP project surveys are held throughout the year, on a quarterly basis (i.e. there are four rounds a year).
The first (1st ) part of this survey took place in the period 19 February – 01 March 2018. The second (2nd ) part of this survey took place in the period 15  – 29 May 2018. The third (3rd) part of this survey took place in the period 14  – 31 August 2018, and the fourth (4th ) part, in the period 23 – 30 November 2018, collecting selling prices of selected goods and services. In the 4th round (the 4th quarter), data was collected digitally using ASUS-T102 mini laptops / tablets.
In addition to the collection of price data, so-called “special surveys” were used to collect data (series on wages and salaries) from ministries. We also made use of modules for “Construction”, “Machines & Equipment” and “Private Education”.
The ICP survey was carried out by ABS staff in the following districts: Paramaribo, Wanica, Commewijne, Saramacca and Para.
The activities are in compliance with the provisions contained in the Statistics Act (2002 Bulletin of Acts and Decrees, no. 97) and the Fundamental Principles of Official Statistics of the United Nations.

The consumer price index (CPI) is a measure for the average change in price of a basket of consumer goods and services of fixed quality and quantity. The CPI is often referred to as the “Cost-Of-Living Index” but that is not quite right. Whereas the COLI does reflect substitutions as a result of changes in relative prices, in taste, and other causes, the CPI does not. Suriname’s CPI basket contains 316 items, with prices being checked in Paramaribo &Wanica (about 170 measuring points), Nickerie, including Wageningen (about 115 measuring points), Coronie&Saramacca (about 105 measuring points), Commewijne (about 120 measuring points) and Para (about 120 measuring points), which adds up to about 630 measuring points.

Aim of the Business Statistics department
The Business Statistics department was set up with the aim of ensuring the collection of data from enterprises and institutions and keeping a business register. Its tasks also include data processing and data analysis, as well as preparing publications on quarterly and annual economic statistics about wages and prices in the construction industry.

Data collection
With a view to publishing data on wages and prices in the construction industry, on or about the fifteenth day of every month, ABS collects wage data by builder role from construction companies and asks building material stores for their input on the prices of such materials.
With a view to publishing quarterly and annual economic statistics, ABS contacts Businesses on a quarterly basis in the following industries: mining, utilities, trade, hotels and restaurants, transportation, warehousing and communication, banking, insurance and community, social and personal services.
The requested data relates to sales, wages, salaries and social security costs, as well as the number of staff. In addition to these quarterly figures, data is collected every year using a more comprehensive form to compile the national accounts.

Methodology
Data is collected in writing by means of surveys and face to face by having interviews at large enterprises employing 10 or more staff (businesses in the formal sector) in the districts of Paramaribo, Wanica, Saramacca, Para, Nickerie and Commewijne. The aim is to collect data from parent companies rather than from subsidiaries, the reason being that interviewers visiting subsidiaries are referred to the parent companies. Suriname’s national computer centre Cebuma (“Centraal Bureau MechanischeAdministratie”) submits monthly reports on the number of civil servants.
The sources used to produce our surveys are the BETEL analyses. The questionnaires are cleaned up and complemented based on observations in the field (e.g. businesses that have ceased operations, people having moved home, etc.)

Business register
It is necessary to maintain an up-to-date business register that can serve as a sampling framework for collecting data for the national accounts, quarterly and annual economic statistics and other purposes. Guidelines used include company databases of ABS, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Telesur and other government agencies.

Method used to calculate indices
The number of staff is determined using the method of Laspeyres index.
The base year is 2007. The growth of the respondent companies is determined by sector of industry.
Base year data is extrapolated by sector based on this growth.

Definitions
Company: A company exists when at the initiative of a person, or of several persons working together, products or services are delivered for profit-making or for non-profit making purposes. There are many types of company but there is always an input (such as raw materials in the case of a manufacturing business), a conversion process and an output (finished product). Although each company is unique, there are also certain similarities. These similarities make it possible for companies to be grouped into categories, namely manufacturing companies, service companies and trade companies.
Large companies: companies employing 10 or more staff
Small companies: companies employing fewer than 10 staff

Employee
Employees are persons on the payroll of the relevant companies, including those who are temporarily absent from work because they are on sick leave, holiday or strike. Any staff working fewer than 15 hours a week are excluded from this definition.
Full-time employee: persons working 20 or more hours a week.
Part-time employee: persons working fewer than 20 hours a week.

Turn over
Turn over on an accrual basis: the realised sales value, i.e. the total value of the goods and/or services delivered during a specific period of time.
Turn over on a cash basis: the sum of all revenues for goods and/or services, including the revenues for previously delivered goods and/or services.

Labour costs
Labour costs are the gross amounts of wages and salaries, including allowances, gratuities, bonuses, annual premiums, overtime money, taxes paid for the employee, holiday allowances, wages and salaries that continue to be paid during public holidays and days off, commuting allowances, housing allowances, commissions, holiday pay, the value of payments in kind, premiums of accident and other insurances, pension contributions, contributions to the retirement pension fund, payments of medical expenses and child support by the company, as well as other remunerations not listed above.
