Abstract

It is demonstrated in this paper that significant differences exist between U.K. regions in term s of some aspects of entrepreneurship, which is defined to be reflect ed in differences in birth rates of new firms. Furthermore, the take- up of four national, small-firm policy instruments varies positively with a theoretically-constructed index of regional entrepreneurship. Since there is an increasingly active public policy in the U.K. desig ned to create jobs in the small firm sector which does not have any e xplicit regional dimension, the paper shows that current policy initi atives serve to reinforce existing differences.
