Abstract

The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor [GEM] research program was developed to provide harmonized comparisons among countries related to the level of participation in entrepreneurial activities. The initial data was assembled as a pretest of five countries in 1998; by 2003, more than forty countries and three sub-national regions were involved in the program. While the initial design was based on the first U.S. Panel Study of Entrepreneurial Dynamics [PSED I], the GEM design evolved to capture a wider range of individual participation in business ownership and management with annual adjustments and enhancements to the data collection procedure. The current consolidated data set focuses on the first six years. The project has continued in 2004-2007, providing a potential for adding more countries and more cases for continuing countries.
