Abstract

This study shows that establishment dissolution declines with age and that age at dissolution differs for broad industry and geography groups, establishment affiliation status, and establishment size. These findings, largely confirming results presented elsewhere, are drawn from age-specific dissolution ratios and establishment life tables calculated for select establishment sub-populations. The paper uses Bureau of the Census Standard Statistical Establishment List datasets, a census of establishments with employment for the United States for the 1987 and 1988 years.
