Education and Entrepreneurship in Canada: Evidence from (Repeated) Cross-Sectional Data
Masakure, Oliver
Education Economics, v23 n6 p693-712 2015
This paper estimates the causal effect of education on entrepreneurship choice in Canada taking into account the endogeneity of education. The data come from the General and Social Surveys (2000-2009). We consider the effect of two extreme education levels: university and some/no education. Regressions are based on fixed effects with two-stage least squares. We find that university education positively impacts entrepreneurship but some/no education reduces self-employment propensity. Implications for entrepreneurship are discussed.
