Explaining the decision to export: evidence from UK firms
In this study the determinants of export probability are investigated for a panel of 2134 UK firms between 1988 and 2001. Firm size, product diversification, innovation and human-capital are all found to increase the probability of exporting. It is also found that the variance of the sterling-dollar rate has a positive effect on export probability in a majority of industries, lending support to stock option theories of export behaviour.
