Abstract

This study explores how high growth firms in Sweden contribute to job creation. Using the population of all firms in Sweden with more than 20 employees in existence in 1996 (n = 11,748), we analysed their annual development for the previous ten years (1987 to 1996). We defined as a sub-sample of high growth firms those 10 % of all firms that contributed most in annual average absolute employment growth (n = 1 153). The results indicate that young and medium sized firms, often in young and growing industries, create new jobs to a great extent. However, the total contribution to job creation by high growth firms is less than that of newly established firms. Implications for research and practice are offered.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® 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 the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
