Abstract:     
New data about total and newly registered businesses in more than 100 industrial and developing countries suggests that a strong business environment can encourage entrepreneurial activity. For example, new firm creation is higher in countries with greater ease in starting a business (Doing Business 2009) and modernized business registries.

The 2008 World Bank Group Entrepreneurship Survey (WBGES) database includes results for 100 countries over an eight-year period (2000- 2007). The database was created as a joint effort between IFC, the World Bank Development Research Group, and the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.

In its third year, the WBGES survey incorporates improvements in methodology and expanded participation from countries covered, allowing for greater cross-border compatibility of data. This round also includes new information on business registration procedures, such as filing requirements, and electronic registration and data storage.

The database has been launched as part of activities around Global Entrepreneurship Week, which was founded by the Kauffman Foundation and the Make Your Mark campaign.
