More than two-thirds of teens (67%) say they’d like to start their own businesses someday. That’s down a bit from the 70% who said “yes” in last year’s poll. This is the first decline in interest in entrepreneurship among teens since the 2004 edition of the annual Junior Achievement survey, which polled more than 800 teens ages 13-19.

Researchers say, on average, teens are more interested in starting their own businesses during economic downturns. The trend typically decreases when the economy and job market are rolling.
