The Cheetah dataset contains geographical, industry, accounting and ownership information on three cohorts of medium-sized firms that experienced sales or employment fast growth rates in the periods 2008-2011, 2009-2012 and 2010-2013. These fast growing medium-sized firms (FGMFs) are located in 30 European countries (EU-28, Norway and Switzerland) plus Israel. Cheetah covers an overall number of 42,369 firms. The aim of Cheetah is to cover the long-term economic performance of FGMFs, as one of the main pillars of the European industrial and technological system.
