Ethnicity and Self-Employment in Britain

  • Clark, Kenneth
  • Drinkwater, Stephen

This paper investigates the ethnic dimension of selfemployment in the British labor market. It examines how both 'push' and 'pull' factors may lead members of nonwhite, ethnic minority groups to enter selfemployment rather than paid-employment. Push factors include discrimination in paid-employment while pull factors refer to minority-specific entrepreneurial opportunities. Data from the General Household Survey and 1991 Census are employed to evaluate the empirical relevance of these issues and to explore differences between ethnic groups. Evidence of both push and pull factors is found. Copyright 1998 by Blackwell Publishing Ltd
