Does unemployment affect the number of establishments ? A regional analysis for US states

Auteur :
CARREE, M.A.

Description :
Empirical tests of the unemployment push hypothesis that unemployed workers start up new enterprises to a greater extent that employed workers to escape unemployment have produced contradictory results. Using data of US establishments in retail and service industries with low entry barriers, the A. finds little or no evidence for that hypothesis. US regions with relatively high unemployment rates do not show relatively strong subsequent increases in the number of establishments across a broad range of industries.
