The relatively low rates of entrepreneurial activity among women represent a key concern for policy, since they signal a clear under-utilisation of entrepreneurial human capital. It is informative for policy makers to have distinct information on women and men employers (self-employed who employ others) and women and men own-account workers (self-employed working on their own). The first category is more likely to represent entrepreneurs.
