Notes
  • Growing political and academic interest in entrepreneurship and business demography, and particularly the role and value of new businesses in national economies, is prompting various research projects on these topics. One of the main issues faced by researchers and policy makers is the current lack of international comparability of data on business start-up rates, which are often seen as key indicators of entrepreneurship and economic dynamism. This paper investigates this issue and concludes that current estimates are not typically comparable, for a number of reasons, which are presented in the form of a typology. On a more positive note however the paper notes that the basic data sources required to improve comparability exist and that significant progress can be made in this area in the short to medium term by encouraging the harmonisation of concepts.L'intérêt politique et académique croissant porté à l'entreprenariat et à la démographie des entreprises, en particulier le rôle et la valeur des nouvelles entreprises dans les économies nationales, ont relancé les divers projets de recherche sur le sujet. L'un de problèmes majeurs rencontré par les chercheurs et les décideurs est le manque de comparabilité des données concernant les taux des entreprises qui démarrent, ce dernier étant souvent considéré comme un indicateur clé de l'entreprenariat et du dynamisme économique. Ce document enquête sur ce sujet et conclura que les estimations disponibles ne sont pas typiquement comparables, pour beaucoup de raisons, qui sont présentées sous la forme d'une typologie. Cependant, de manière plus positive, ce document révèle que les sources de données basiques nécessaires à améliorer la comparabilité existent, et que des progrès significants peuvent être faits en la matière, à court et moyen terme, en encourageant l'harmonisation des concepts.
