Job Creation and Job Destruction in a Transition Economy: Ownership, Firm Size

  • J. Konings
  • H. Lehmann
  • M.E. Schaffer

Comprehensive firm-level data for Polish manufacturing show that in state- owned firms the large drop in net employment since the start of the transition in 1990 has been driven by a jump in the job destruction rate; job creation, by contrast, is located disproportionately in the private sector. Small firms are more dynamic than large firms, but even after controlling for size, private firms have a higher net employment growth rate.
