An Analysis of Entrepreneurship Across a Variety of Countries

This study will examine the impact of unemployment on entrepreneurship rates in a variety of countries. It will provide a deeper understanding of factors that affect international markets through real world observation. It will provide valuable experience learning how to research and compare international economies. The research can be expected to present at undergraduate conferences throughout next academic year.

Multiple regression modeling in STATA will be used to look at the significance of chosen variables when explaining country entrepreneurship rates. By obtaining data on cross-country GDP, wage, development and region from the World Bank database and the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM), we can determine what affects unemployment has on entrepreneurship activity in different countries.
