Example text

The idea of entrepreneurship is widespread with an abundance of examples. In this regard it shares many characteristics of other attractive ideas, such as truth, beauty, happiness, and justice. While most people are comfortable discussing these topics, developing precise procedures for measuring these concepts is another matter. Likewise, precision in the measurement of entrepreneurship would facilitate two research objectives: identifying the activity for systematic study and estimating the scope of the activity—as a social or economic phenomenon.

The procedure, however, adjusts estimates for the proportion of individuals in a sample that may be identified as candidate nascent entrepreneurs. It does not provide for an adjustment of the responses of a specific individual. As a consequence, in order to develop estimates for different groups of individuals, say men 35-54 years of age in 1999, the predictive equation needed to be applied to each sub-sample. After weights were re-centered for each sub-sample, the estimates were developed. 6. 4 % of candidate nascent entrepreneurs meet all three criteria for active nascent entrepreneurs; this was applied to all sub-samples in all years.
