Young enterprises

Many newly-created enterprises fail within the first few years of life, although there are important differences across countries. The one-year survival rate of employer enterprises born in 2013 was above 90% in Sweden, the United States, Luxembourg, Lithuania and the United Kingdom, but between 60% and 70% in the Czech Republic and Poland, and below 55% in the Slovak Republic.
