This paper is a preliminary exploration of self employment using data from the Social Change and Economic Life Initiative. A brief examination of transitions into and out of self employment is presented, indicating career paths conducive to self employment. Using bivariate and regression analysis a profile of the self employed is established, with reference to training, attitudes, background, earnings, age, gender and ethnicity. In addition, the impact on entrepreneurship of government policy, unemployment and large organization subcontracting practices is explored.
