Global Entrepreneurship Monitor United Kingdom 2008 Monitoring Report

  • Levie, J., Hart, M. (2008). (Global Entrepreneurship Monitor)
  • Abstract: This report compares Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) measures of entrepreneurial attitudes, activity and aspiration in the UK with participating G7 countries and the large industrialized or industrializing countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China (“BRIC”). It also summarizes entrepreneurial attitudes, activity and aspiration within Government Official Regions of the UK and, for the first time, demonstrates the pattern of entrepreneurial activity at the sub-regional (NUTS2) level. A comprehensive review of the historic GEM UK database was conducted in late 2008, resulting in a harmonized, pooled database of almost 160,000 responses from individuals aged 18 to 64 over the period 2002 to 2008. Historical data for the UK in this report are based on this harmonized database. As a result, there may be small differences in point estimates of entrepreneurial attitudes, activity and aspiration in the UK between figures reported in previous years and those in this report. In addition, the reporting of some measures in the GEM Executive reports has evolved in recent years, and in the body of this report we display measures that are harmonized with the 2008 GEM Executive Report.
