About Statistics on Cooperatives in ArgentinaMirta VUOTTO

The aim of the article is to analyze the information on cooperatives generated and published by official sources since the origins of Argentine cooperativism to examine its characteristics, usefulness and limitations. The idea is to provide an overview of current cooperativism based on statistical sources available at the National Institute of Associativism and Social Economy -the body that regulates the activity of cooperatives. The article systematizes the data from a register based on information provided to the agency by registered cooperatives. Referring to the official statistical source, the sector for the year 2021 is classified according to the main economic activity of the cooperatives, and other indicators that allow us to identify the distribution and weight of the various branches of Argentine cooperativism, both in terms of the number of associates and in terms of the jobs created. 2021 WP21/08
