Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Self-employed receive no state aid from their status, so they don't have any real incentive to falsify their status in a confidential poll (of course for their CV and relatives that's something else :), so they don't present any source of problem for employment statistics.

As I said when ET did talk about cooperative, we have zero data or studies on cooperative (small and big) vs current "normal" corporations.

Even something as simple as the share of value-added or number of employees is not available AFAIK.
