Ongoing since 2015

Project Directors: Sari Pekkala Kerr, Ph.D.
Funder: Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation

This project focuses on the new longitudinal Survey of Business Owners (SBOX) and other Census Bureau data sources that can be used to cross-verify and amend the information collected via the SBOX. As part of the project, Kerr will conduct entrepreneurship research using the most recently available SBO data, during which she will also evaluate any complications in the production data sets, and develop best practices for other researchers based on her exploratory work. The best practices will be collected into a specific internal data memo.
