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 User Guide, Firm Productivity Report (CompNet, 2020) and Cross-Country Comparability Report and (2) include the following footnote naming the caveats for interpretation of the results: “The user must be aware that small differences in data collection rules and procedures across countries may exist and are out of CompNet’s control. Nevertheless comparability issues appear to be limited. For a more detailed account of raw data characteristics and potential sample biases, please refer to the Cross-Country Comparability Report.”
