You can find a detailed documentation of the dataset in ECB Working Paper 1764 “Assessing European competitiveness: The new CompNet micro-based database”.
If you intend to publish research that is based or makes use of CompNet data we kindly require you to: (1) include a reference to the detailed CompNet documentation (ECB WP 1764) and (2) include the following footnote naming the caveats for interpretation of the results set out in section 2.6.1 of ECB WP 1764: "The reader must be aware that data collection rules and procedures across countries are different, and out of CompNet’s control. Hence, despite all efforts made to improve sample comparability across countries (including the use of population weights in the 20E sample), some country samples might still suffer from biases. For a more detailed account of raw data characteristics and sample biases, please refer to the ECB Working Paper 1764."
