''Gender and firm-size: Evidence from Africa''
( 2010, Vol. 30 No.1 )
A number of studies show that relative to male owned businesses, female owned businesses are smaller in size. However, these studies are restricted to the developed countries. We find similar results for firms in the unregistered sector of developing countries of Burkina Faso, Cameroons, Cape Verde, Ivory Coast, Madagascar and Mauritius.
Keywords: Informality, Gender, Firm-size, Africa
JEL: L2 - Firm Objectives, Organization, and Behavior: General
