Registered author(s):

    Los efectos positivos del autoempleo sobre el crecimiento económico y la creación de empleo han sido contrastados ampliamente en la literatura económica. Recientemente, el fenómeno del autoempleo se ha analizado desde una perspectiva longitudinal, centrándose en las transiciones y permanencia en dicho estado laboral. Este trabajo sigue esta línea de investigación, ofreciendo evidencia empírica sobre la elección entre el empleo autónomo o asalariado que realizan los individuos al iniciar su vida laboral, y la duración que presentan en ambas situaciones laborales.
