Global State of Small Business

The Global State of Small Business Report, based on the Future of Business Survey, is an ongoing research collaboration by Facebook, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and the World Bank to survey small and medium-sized businesses around the world over a six-month period in the context of COVID-19. The aim of these 2020 surveys, together with the associated reports and updates, is to provide a window into SMBs’ experiences amid COVID-19. As we measure the pandemic’s effects on business closures, revenue, employment, and finances, we also gain insight into SMBs’ needs and challenges.
