ABSTRACT
Home as a business location has been an overlooked variable in small business research. The absence is striking considering that over half of small firms are home-based and contribute an estimated $500 billion or more to the economy. This paper presents an exploratory model of owner and business characteristics that influence location choice. The model offers a new dimension to entrepreneurship theory-home-based or non-home-based location-which is a measurable, observable variable potentially useful in differentiating lifestyle from growth-oriented firms. Use of the model is illustrated with new data from the Survey of Business Owners.
