In 2007, 0.3% of adults (or about 3 of every 1,000 adults) participated in a business start-up, according to a Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation study. Immigrants far outpaced native-born Americans in entrepreneurial activity. A full 0.46% of immigrants participate in start-ups, while that number runs at 0.27% of native-born Americans. Men are twice as likely as women to start a business, the study says. Read the study at www. kauffman.org/kauffmanindex.
