Regional analysis of start-up activities in North Rhine-Westphalia, 2015-2017

IfM Bonn has analyzed the start-up activities in the economic regions of North Rhine-Westphalia by means of specially compiled data from the statistics of business notifications and additional information from the tax administrations. Thereby, substantial differences have been detected between the regions, e.g. with regard to start-up intensity, the development over time, and the importance of special sectors of activity. The regions of Düsseldorf/Kreis Mettmann and Cologne-Bonn show a high start-up intensity, both in the area of industrial start-up activities and those in the liberal professions. The regions South Westphalia, East Westphalia-Lippe and Münsterland, by contrast, feature the weakest start-up activities.
