Self Employment among Graduates
An econometric model of the self-employment decision is estimated for a large sample of U.K. graduates. Although the earnings distributions suggest that there are incentives to be self-employed, the difference in the predicted earnings that an individual receives in the self-employed and employed sectors is not a significant influence on the choice of sector and the decision depends on personal and social factors. Policies based on changing the pecuniary returns may not encourage the growth of self-employment among graduates. The econometric results also suggest that the self-employed are a nonrandom subset of the graduate workforce.
