Facts on Job Creation

on February 03, 2010 Source: Policy Dialogue on Entrepreneurship

In light of President Obama's State of the Union pledge to make the creation of a million jobs his priority in the year to come, the Kauffman Foundation has compiled a list of related facts and studies:

•    Why it is that young firms—not necessarily small firms—create the new jobs
•    How many new firms are started each year, who starts them (they are older than you might think) and why the number of new companies remains remarkably consistent from year to year
•    Entrepreneurs’ hiring outlook for 2010
•    Where startups get their funding
•    How startups faired in past recessions
•    What the next generation thinks about starting their own business
•    The vital role high-skilled immigrant entrepreneurs play in making jobs in America
