The Analysis of UK Business Growth for the Small Business Sector using Novel Data Analysis Methods.

Project Details


The proposed study will seek to explore growth behaviour of the SME sector and its antecedents using novel data analysis methods. Love and Roper (2015) note that extant evidence evaluating the SME sector is limited and characterised by small sample sizes and simplistic econometric analysis and suggest the need for further research. Thus this application meets Love and Roper’s call by evaluating UK SME behaviour through a different lens. Two novel data analysis methods are proposed, namely NCaRBS and fsQCA
