For those interested in more information on job creation in the Employment Dynamics data

Jessica Helfand, Akbar Sadeghi and David Talan, “Employment Dynamics: Small and Large Firms Over the Business Cycle.” March 2007 Monthly Labor Review

Tim Kane, The Importance of Startups in Job Creation and Job Destruction (PDF from the Kauffman Foundation Research Series, July, 2010)
