A couple of weeks ago I called for comment on the Bureau of Labor Statistics' proposed new entrepreneurship questions in their next round of questions for the National Youth Longitudinal Survey 1979. Since that time we have been engaged in a review ourselves and with Mathematica Policy Research, our survey vendor for the Kauffman Firm Survey. As the deadline for comments is quickly approaching, I will be sending this by the close of business Thursday. In the meantime, in the spirit of openness, I am posting a draft letter and attachments here. We remain open to other ideas from scholars or individuals with survey research experience on this population.
