Abstract

Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) has developed into one of the world's leading social science research consortia. Between 2000 and 2007, entrepreneurial activity has been measured in 60 different countries, including the UK and, as a region of the UK, Scotland. Data on individual entrepreneurial attitudes, activity and aspirations is gathered through surveys of adults according to strict protocols. This report draws on eight years of survey data, comprising a total of around 16,000 respondents in Scotland (some 2,000 per annual cohort) and around 190,000 respondents in the UK during the period 2000 to 2007.
