Abstract:Understanding the factors that promote or mitigate new firm birth is crucial to regional economic development efforts, since a high level of new firm creation significantly contributes to regional economic vitality and is a major signal of a dynamic economy. The literature suggest that various factors such as unemployment, population density/growth, industrial structure, human capital, the availability of financing, and entrepreneurial characteristics significantly influence regional variation in new firm birth rates.
