New Start-ups and Firm In-migration - Evidence from the Swedish Wholesale Trade Industry
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to distinguish between the
determinants of new start-ups and in-migration of firms using a data-set
that covers 13,471 limited liability firms in the Swedish wholesale trade
industries during the period 2000-2004. Our results indicate that the
presence of a university more than doubles the expected number of entrants
and increases the expected number of in-migrating firms with 30%. A large
share of educated workers and a high local unemployment rate is also
associated with more start-ups and firm in-migration.
