Abstract: Existing studies of entrepreneurship development are inadequate in measuring the scale of entrepreneurial activity, or analysing its determinants in China. The purpose of this paper is, therefore, to provide an analytical framework to better define and measure entrepreneurship in a systematic way, enabling benchmarking with other nations.

Keywords: entrepreneurship; China; economic development; public policy; institutions; technology; globalisation; industrial structure; urbanisation; income disparities; benchmarking; entrepreneurial activity.
