Introduction Producer Dynamics

Show Summary Details


This book deals with the measurement and explanation of producer dynamics. The first section of the book describes the data of a project undertaken to develop comparable cross-country data on firm entry, exit, and turnover. The second section uses the new data series on employment dynamics. The next section looks beyond the traditional data sources, concentrating on producer dynamics in retailing, service industries, and agriculture, and extending the measurement of producer dynamics to the nonemployer segment of the business universe. The fourth section utilizes the linked employer and employee data to present a more detailed picture of worker turnover and the human capital present at a workplace. The final section employs micro data to examine transitions of firms into and out of import and export markets. Finally, an overview of the chapters included in this book is given.
