Abstract

Entrepreneurship is increasingly recognized as a major factor of economic growth, productivity and competitive economy. Many countries are making efforts to support entrepreneurship and are interested in knowing how government policies and other factors can influence the amount and type of entrepreneurship. For this purpose they need to understand the determinants of and obstacles to entrepreneurship. In spite of the large interest in entrepreneurship, due to the lack of internationally comparable data, the understanding of this phenomenon and its determinants remains still an open problem. In 2006 OECD launched the Entrepreneurship Indicators Programme (EIP), which was joined by Eurostat in 2007. In Measuring Entrepreneurship: A Digest of Indicators (2008) a common set of concepts and definitions is presented. Furthermore, consistent data across different countries are published: even if these data do not represent the whole set of indicators which is needed for studying the entrepreneurship process, they represent a preliminary database of internationally comparable statistics. Using this database (Structural and Demographic Business Statistics (SDBS)) and others (R&D database, Market Regulation database and Education at a Glance) we perform initial analysis of entrepreneurship across countries. Our interest is in understanding its determinants and in particular those related to education. Preliminary conclusions about the role of different educational level on entrepreneurship are obtained as a reference theoretical frame for more detailed analyses based on single country data.
