Supplementary notes

The statistic refers to a survey conducted within the framework of the KfW Entrepreneurship Monitor (KfW-Gründungsmonitor). In the survey 50,000 respondents were surveyed. During the process founders to whom the percentages listed in the statistic apply were identified. The KfW Entrepreneurship Monitor collects information with computer-supported telephone interviews (CATI).

Percentage points exceeding 100 percent are most likely due to rounding.
