El objetivo de este trabajo consiste en poner de manifiesto las principales diferencias y similitudes existentes entre las distintas características que pueden hacer que un trabajador se convierta en empresario. El estudio se realiza para los distintos países que forman parte del Panel de Hogares de la Unión Europea (PHOGUE). La metodología empleada en el análisis empírico es la estimación de modelos probit binomiales. Utilizando datos de corte transversal para el año 2001, los resultados muestran un comportamiento bastante homogéneo del empresario con respecto a la edad, el estado civil, el género, los ingresos no laborales y el sector de actividad, aunque la naturaleza e intensidad de la relación varían entre los distintos países. / The aim of this paper is to analyze the differences and similarities in the types of individuals who choose to become entrepreneurs in PHOGUE countries. The data source is a cross-sectional survey for the year 2001 and the empirical analysis is performed through a probit model. Results show that entrepreneurs are a homogeneous group with respect to the age, gender, civil state, the non labour revenues and the activity sector, although the nature and strength of the relationship vary across countries.
