WCM is calling for data

Please take the short amount of time needed to enter your co-operative’s details for the 2017 edition of the Monitor.

The World Co-operative Monitor, published by the International Co-operative Alliance in conjunction Euricse, has become the premier source of annual data on the size of the co-operative economy. It has become a crucial resource for raising the co-operative profile and impact with policymakers, industry professionals and the public at large. It is also an important tool for researchers around the globe and is now calling for data.

At the core of the Monitor is a list of the 300 largest co-operatives in the world, as measured by turnover. In addition, the Monitor presents sectorial rankings and in-depth looks at particular sectors or regions. In 2016, the report included an analysis of the financial structure of the largest co-operatives. This year we are committed to expand that analysis to include smaller co-operatives, those with turnovers below USD 50 million, in some cases well below that figure.WCM

We are reaching out to co-operatives of all sizes, across sectors and regions to expand the coverage of the database. Please take the short amount of time needed to enter your co-operative’s details for the 2017 edition of the Monitor. Federations and supporters of co-operatives are encouraged to mobilise the co-operatives in their membership and network to complete the survey. The 2017 survey is available in many different languages online and will be open through May 31st, 2017.

The findings from the World Co-operative Monitor, which will include a special section on impact of the co-operative movement in South East Asia, will be presented at the Alliance conference in Malaysia in November.
