This paper provides a holistic framework focusing on the: factors that impede or motivate entrepreneurship (determinants); measures that provide indicators of the state of entrepreneurship (entrepreneurial performance); and, outcomes (impacts) of that performance on the economy as a whole. Each of these three themes provides the overarching structure to the framework, using a standardised OECD definition of entrepreneurship, and, within each, a suite of indicators that provide the basis for quantifiable information to be collected in an internationally comparable way against these themes.
Eurostat / OECD entrepreneurship indicators program (EIP) collects internationally-comparable statistics. Entrepreneurship is measured against 1. Performance, 2. Impact and 3. Determinants such as regulatory frameworks and societal attitudes to risk.
