GEM’s focus on individual-level participation enables this research to reveal a range of demographic and other characteristics about entrepreneurs. The research also makes possible an assessment of the level of inclusiveness in an economy—in other words, the extent to which various groups (for example age, gender or education level) engage in entrepreneurial activity. This information can assist policy makers in targeting effective interventions aimed at increasing participation as well as productivity in the economy.
