Abstract/Artist's Statement

In contrast to vast literature on other factors that influence the entrepreneur- ship, very little is known about the role of computer access in self-employment. Using matched data from the National Longitudinal Survey Y79 Children and Young Adults, I examine the relationship between previous computer access and the subsequent entrepreneurship. Linear regressions provide evidence of a negative relationship between previous computer access and subsequent entrepreneurship. However, with access to computer, female self-employment entry increases.
