Abstract

We present a set of empirical regularities that characterize the export activity of firms. We decompose firm-level exports by product category across destination markets in a consistent manner for four data sets from Brazil, Chile, Denmark, and Norway. We relate the empirical regularities to new trade theories that connect microeconomic activity to aggregate outcomes. Our findings corroborate main motivating facts and may help discipline future theoretical work. (JEL codes: F12, L11, F14). Copyright The Authors 2012.
