A new report from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the European Commission – ‘The Missing Entrepreneurs 2017 – Policies for Inclusive Entrepreneurship’ – shows that in 2016 men were an average 1.7 times more likely to be self-employed than women. Among OECD countries this gap ranged from 1.1 times in Mexico and Chile to 3.1 times in Ireland. Similarly, the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor – an international household survey on entrepreneurship – estimates that men are 1.6 times more likely to be new business owners.
