Employment, job creation and growth in developing countries (Master thesis)

Σίντος, Ανδρέας


In this study we examine the contribution of firm size to employment, job creation and growth using the Enterprise Surveys (ES), World Bank’s for 112 developing countries, surveyed over the period 2009-2017. While large firms (100+ employees) have the largest share to total employment, both small (<20 employees) and medium (20-99 employees) hold a slightly larger share than large firms. Small firms have the largest share of job creation compared to the other firm size groups. Even after controlling for firm age, we find that small firms have the highest employment and sales growth. However, large firms have the highest productivity growth. On firm age, we find that young firms (≤5 years) have the highest employment, sales and productivity growth. Our results suggest that a policymaker has to take into account both firm size and age to promote growth and create better quality jobs.
