Show Abstract /
The birth rate of women-owned enterprises provides essential information about the dynamism of women’s entrepreneurship. Statistics on births and deaths, together with information on related employment generation and destruction, can tell whether the economic weight of women entrepreneurs is converging to the one of men. They can also inform about the effects of economic downturns on the dynamics of women and men entrepreneurship.
