Investment climate; entrepreneurship international comparison 1990-2012

Edit table

This table provides for several countries an overview of :
- business ownership rate;
- prospective and young entrepreneurship;
- firm turbulence (births and exits of enterprises, business survival rate);
- fast-growing enterprises;
- propensity towards entrepreneurship;
- self-employment rate (by sex).
High business turnover rates, many fast-growing enterprises, many young entrepreneurs and a positive attitude towards entrepreneurship are an indication of a favourable investment climate.
