Freiberufliche Existenzgründungen in Deutschland im Jahr 2012


  • Kranzusch, Peter
  • Suprinovič, Olga


Auf der Basis von Finanzamtsdaten wurde erstmals näherungsweise die Zahl der Existenzgründungen in den Freien Berufen ermittelt. Im Jahr 2012 wurden rund 82.000 Gründungen durch Freiberufler angemeldet. Für das Jahr 2013 wird ein abnehmendes Gründungsgeschehen erwartet. Von allen Existenzgründungen entfällt ein Anteil von rund 16,7 % auf die Freien Berufe. Stadtstaaten weisen eine deutlich höhere Gründungsneigung als Flächenländer auf. Berlin nimmt mit 64 freiberuflichen Existenzgründungen pro 10.000 Einwohner eine herausragende Position unter den Bundesländern ein.
