Conference Paper
Despite research linking economic development and entrepreneurship, few studies examine the effect of entrepreneurial activity on social development, thus relationships between entrepreneurship and social development are not well understood. For developing countries in particular, the paucity of relevant data and research is glaring. This study examines the relationship between entrepreneurial activity and economic and social development in Trinidad and Tobago, using the three indicators of the UNDP's Human Development Index coinciding with relevant available data over the period 2000 to 2006. Results suggest positive correlations for both social and economic indicators with entrepreneurial activity over the period.
