This graphic shows the number of enterprises in France in 2017, by number of employees. During this year,approximately 6300 French companies were employing over 250 people or more. While the majority of enterprises had no employees listed.
These findings were reflected in a different statistical survey on the size of non-financial businesses in France, which reported that most of these businesses employ between 0 and 9 people in 2016. When asked about business confidence in France, 43 percent of all small and medium businesses (SMEs) in France reported in February 2017 to have a positive outlook based on production, orders, stocks, the business' current position and expectations for the immediate future. A decrease compared to the previous month at 45 percent.

However, overall the business confidence indicator showed a net increase of 3 percent during that year. The number of employees in French SMEs was expected to experience little change in the near future, with three fourths of respondents reporting they had not planned any changes to their employee numbers.
