    Family businesses present a considerable part of the formal economy in the developed countries. This paper tries to investigate the links between the initiative to open family businesses and the personal,ocio-economic factors present in our country. We used the results of 300 uestionnaires completed by individuals interviewed from the biggest cities in Albania. Based on these data we find that the link between education and the initiative to open a family firm is not important. The relation between age group and the initiative to open a family firm is nearly important. The link between the initiative to open a family firm and the income level was significant at the 0.01 level while the link between the initiative to open a business and the living residency was significant at the 0.05 level favoring individuals who live in the capital city.
