An Empirical Study on the Size Factor as a Business Determinant
María Elena Gómez Miranda
Lázaro Rodríguez Ariza
In this paper we point out the main conclusions obtained through an empirical study carried out in order to check the hypothesis with regard to firm conditioning in view of its size. The research has been carried out by applying diverse techniques of multivariable analysis, specifically factorial analysis, cluster and discriminant, on the basis of the information available from a sample made up by 6.600 firms. Diverse criteria used by certain Spanish Commercial Performance Information Bureaus to classify and work with their database, have been taken as a reference in the outline of a firms size. According to the analysis of the results obtained, we conclude that the economic and financial characteristics of the firms examined do not depend on their size, and therefore the hypothesis of firm nature according to its size is not confirmed.
