Churn rate of employer enterprises

The churn rate, i.e. the sum of births and deaths of enterprises, indicates how frequently new firms are created and how often existing enterprises close down. In fact, the number of births and deaths of enterprises accounts for a sizeable proportion of the total number of firms in most economies. The indicator reflects a country’s degree of creative destruction, and it is of high interest for analysing, for example, the contribution of firm churning to aggregate productivity growth.
