Classification of economies by geographic region is based on that of the United Nations Statistics Division.

High Income
 

Based on the income levels set out by the World Economic Forum (WEF) in its Global Competitiveness Report. However, the groupings are slightly different due to the numbers of economies covered. For GEM, the low income group contains both those classified as low income and lower middle by WEF, and the middle income group has those that WEF groups as upper middle. High income is the same for both GEM and WEF.

  • In Greece, the percentage of the population aged 18-64, which in 2017 was at the early stages of entrepreneurial activity (including self-employment), dropped at 4.8% (approximately 320 thousand people) from 5.7% (approximately 380 thousand) in 2016. This rate is the lowest ever recorded (2003-2017: 6.9%) and well below the average level of “innovation-driven economies” (2017: 9.2%). Therefore, it seems that despite the gradual stabilization of the economy during 2017, uncertainty remained strong and affected the level of early stage entrepreneurship. At the same time however, a small increase in the supply of waged employment was recorded, while unemployment declined.

  • The percentage of population aged 18-64, which in 2016 was at the early stages of entrepreneurial activity (including self-employment), dropped at 5.7% (approximately 380 thousand people) from 6.7% (450 thousand people) in 2015. This rate - which is among the lowest recorded (2003-2016: 6.9%) - is below the average level of “innovation-driven economies” (2016: 9.1%), i.e., the majority of developed countries around the world, including Greece. Therefore, despite the stabilization of the economy in 2016, uncertainties remained strong affecting thus the level of entrepreneurship.
