The determinants of export behaviour in UK service firms
This paper examines the determinants of export behaviour for a panel of UK service industry firms from 1988 to 2001. Export behaviour is modelled in a dual manner: as both the decision to export and the intensity of exporting. The results indicate that firm size, research intensity, average director's pay and the variance of the sterling--dollar exchange rate all increase the probability of becoming an exporter. In addition, the results indicate that the process underlying a firm's decision to export is a separate one from that determining export intensity, implying that the two decisions should be modelled separately.
