VI. There is a difference between the operating revenue of cultural and related industries enterprises above designated size in the first quarter of 2020 and the previously published data in the first quarter of 2019. The main reasons are: (1) the number of enterprises above designated size has changed. In the first quarter of 2020, some enterprises will be included in the investigation scope if they reach the above scale standard, some enterprises will withdraw from the investigation scope because of the smaller scale, and some factors such as newly built and put into operation enterprises, bankruptcy, changes in the cancelled (revoked) enterprises, and statistics and law enforcement to remove false enterprises, etc. will change the number of enterprises above the designated size. In the first quarter of 2020, the number of cultural and related industry survey enterprises above designated size nationwide was 59,000, an increase of 3,396 over the previous year. According to the comparable approach, the operating revenue of cultural and related industry enterprises above designated size in the first quarter of 2019 was 1,960.6 billion yuan. 2 We strengthened statistical law enforcement, cleaned up the enterprises that did not meet the requirements above the scale and the false data filled in during the inspection of statistical law enforcement, and revised the relevant base number according to the regulations.
