Notes
  • Understanding the importance of the dynamic entry process in the Canadian economy involves measuring size of entry. The main purpose of this paper is to summarise the information that we have on the amount of entry in Canada. The paper also fulfils another purpose. Some studies have focused on cross-country comparisons (Geroski and Schwalbach, 1991: OECD, 2001). Interpretation of the results of these studies is difficult unless methodological issues regarding how entry is measured are addressed. Without an understanding of the extent to which different databases produce different results, international comparisons are difficult to evaluate. Cross-country comparisons that are derived from extremely different data sources may be misleading because of the lack of comparability. Since there is more than one reliable database that can be used to estimate entry in Canada, this paper asks how measured entry rates vary across different Canadian databases. By examining the difference in entry ... L’importance de l’entrée dans le secteur canadien de la fabrication, document accompagné d’une annexe sur les questions de mesure Il faut mesurer l’étendue de l’entrée dans l’économie canadienne pour comprendre l’importance du processus dynamique d’entrée à l’intérieur de cette économie. Le présent document a principalement pour objectif de résumer l’information dont nous disposons sur l’envergure de l’entrée dans l’économie au Canada. Il réalise également un autre objectif. Certaines études sont axées sur des comparaisons entre pays (Geroski et Schwalbach, 1991; OCDE, 2001). Il est difficile d’interpréter les résultats de ces études à moins d’aborder des questions méthodologiques qui se rattachent à la façon de mesurer l’entrée dans l’économie. Il est également difficile d’évaluer des comparaisons au niveau international si l’on ne comprend pas à quel point des bases de données différentes produisent des résultats différents. Les comparaisons entre pays établies à partir de sources de données extrêmement différentes peuvent être trompeuses en raison de leur manque de comparabilité. Parce qu’il existe plus ...
