A Longitudinal Analysis of Young Entrepreneurs in Canada

In this paper we use the Longitudinal Administrative Databank (LAD) for the years 1985-1988 and 1992-1995 to model the transition from paid-employment to self-employment of young adults aged 20-29. We also look at the transition from self-employment to paid-employment of individuals in this age group. In the first part of this paper we present a cross-sectional overview of self-employment trends in Canada. Subsequently, we focus on the principal part of the analysis—modelling the transition from employment to self-employment of individuals aged 20-29 in Canada.
