Summary

This working paper provides some descriptive statistics concerning patterns of firm entry in selected Norwegian industries over the time period 1997-2005. The direct history of the employees in newborn firms and of the recently employed employees in established firms is used in order to compare the recruitment sources of newborn and established firms. Finally, some simple econometric analysis is performed and used as a tool for describing the importance of different determinants of post-entry survival and success of newborn firms.
