Entrepreneurship at a Glance is a new, recurrent publication that presents an original collection of indicators for measuring the state of entrepreneurship along with explanations of the policy context and interpretation of the data. This publication also includes special chapters that address measurement issues, and solutions, concerning entrepreneurship and its determinants. In this first issue the special topics covered are: business demography, green entrepreneurs and angel capital.

This new publication is a product of the OECD-Eurostat Entrepreneurship Indicators Programme, which is a long-term programme of internationally-comparable policy-relevant entrepreneurship statistics. The work involves developing standard definitions and concepts and engaging countries and international Agencies in the collection of data. An international group of statisticians and analysts provides guidance to the Programme that benefits from sponsorship by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation in the United States.

Obstacles to entrepreneurship by gender

Entrepreneurs face a range of obstacles when starting their business and growing it. If appropriate support has to be designed, knowing the gender differences in the perception and or experience of barriers is useful. This section looks at obstacles to entrepreneurship by gender, as reported by three official statistics sources. In a context of international comparisons, the perception of obstacles may be affected not only by the previous experience of the respondents (typically, individuals with entrepreneurial experience tend to be more aware of the difficulties if starting up or growing an enterprise) but also by cultural factors.
