Three stages of net entry into Austrian manufacturing: entrepreneurial experimentation and actual entry

Werner Hölzl (), Reinhold Hofer () and Angelika Schenk ()

Abstract: In this paper we explore the determinants of changes in the industrial populations rates in Austrian manufac-turing. The research questions whether or not the nature and causes of the net entry of firms across three dif-ferent stages of entry-exit decision and firm growth are different. Our econometric analysis suggests that the-re are differences in leading to the determination of the entry and exit at different stages of the entry-exit de-cision, and that aggregate growth and disaggregate growth (measured in employment terms) play a major role.
