Presentation Abstract

This study intends to discover the extent to which education at the primary, secondary, and tertiary levels impacts entrepreneurship, as measured by new firms and entry density, when democracy and economic freedom are held constant. The data were analyzed using Pearson correlations and multiple regression. We found that economic freedom is a more significant predictor of entrepreneurship than democracy. Our results also tentatively suggest that education at the tertiary level promotes entrepreneurship in terms of new firms. Future studies of the topic may benefit from analyses of countries according to other variables such as region or GDP.
