Understanding the role that start-ups play in labor market dynamics can help economists expedite labor market recovery post-covid-19. This paper runs a regression using OLS least squares estimation to better identify the relationship between job growth rates and start-up survival rates. The regression provide evidence supporting the hypothesis that high rates of start-up survival will correspond with higher levels of job growth rates. Policymakers and entrepreneurs should use these results to inform their priorities as they lead the labor market recovery.
