HOW DOES RELIGION AND CULTURE AFFECT SELF EMPLOYMENT?

by Mankin, Solomon K

Abstract

The focus of the thesis is to look at religion and culture’s effect on entrepreneurship. I hypothesized that culture and religions that promote strong social networks will lead to an increase in entrepreneurship. To answer this question, I collect data from the World Value Survey Wave 6 in the years of 2010 to 2014. I measure the effects by quantifying religion and culture from the survey dataset. I then use the probit regression to find if religion and culture positively affect entrepreneurship. The results show that religion and culture negatively affect entrepreneurship.
