UK Business Sample
The best data to use for developing sample controls for UK B2B business samples is the data produced by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) from the Inter Departmental Business Register (IDBR), and the latest version was released this month. Providing full details of UK businesses by activity, size and region this enables you to create representative sample controls for any type of UK business project.
Then the question is – where do you get the sample from?
Unless you are working for the Government you are unable to source your sample through access to the IDBR and there is no other comprehensive sample frame available to you. However, we at Sample Answers can provide you with the most comprehensive source of business sample by combining three separate files of UK business. This does not ensure a perfect sample but it will remove the bias associated with using a sample from a single source.
We have access to information on over 2 million businesses across the UK, through our in-house databases, which we source from the UK’s leading providers of B2B information. Each record holds a comprehensive range of business demographics, ensuring that it will be of value to you.
Every record we provide comes with a:
- telephone number
- full postal address
- contact name (where available)
We also hold email addresses for many of these contacts. We span across limited and public companies ranging from sole traders to multi-subsidiary corporations.
We can pull representative UK samples based on the figures from the ONS.
