International perceptions and aspirations
2010 marked the completion of data collection for year
three (Wave 3) of the CAUSEE study. This report uses
data from the first three years.
Australia’s population is noted for its mixed
international background. The ABS 2006 census
reports showed that almost a quarter of Australian
population were born overseas, contributing to a high
degree of cultural diversity.
This report examines the international background
and experience of Australian business founders as
well as their aspired and actual participation in
In this research briefing paper, we compare Nascent
Firm (NF) and Young Firm (YF) groups and also ‘Regular’
start-ups in both categories with their High Potential
counterparts. When we compare characteristics at
one point in time the analysis uses data from the first
interview and sample sizes are of the order indicated
in Figure 1. When we compare development over
time the analysis includes only those cases that have
survived and continued to participate in the study over
three years, which means that the samples are smaller.
Unless otherwise stated the findings we comment on
are ‘statistically significant’. That is, there is less than 5
per cent risk that they would appear by chance if there
is no true difference in the population from which the
samples were drawn.
Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloadsdisplays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
