Factors Determining the Success or Failure of Canadian Establishments on Foreign Markets: A Survival Analysis Approach


  • Bosco Sabuhoro, Jean
  • Gervais, Yvan


This paper uses the 1993 to 2000 Exporter Registry of Statistics Canada to study the factors determining the success or exit of Canadian establishments on foreign markets. The survival analysis model is adopted to study the survival and hazard rates of exporting establishments, with the Cox proportional hazards regression used for the econometric analysis.
