Abstract: This paper uses plant-level data from Chile to show that an increase in sector-wide exports decreases the survival probability of exporters, but not that of non-exporters. We argue that this result can be explained by the fact that exporters and non-exporters use factors of production in different intensities.

Keywords: Firm survival; Chile; manufacturing sectors; firm heterogeneity in factor intensities (search for similar items in EconPapers)
