Abstract: The aim of the article was to empirically support a hypothesis, that no matter what measure of entrepreneurship or self-employment we choose at the country level, the determinants indicate the same direction of impact. Methodologically, four measures of entrepreneurial and self-employment activity were utilized as dependent variables in regression models. Entrepreneurial activity in the article was operationalized by Eurostat and OECD self-employment rates, and by Global Entrepreneurship Monitor rates of established business ownership rate and total early-stage entrepreneurial activity (TEA). Based on the obtained results, the determinants of entrepreneurship and self-employment influence all four presented measures in the same direction.
