CONTINUOUS DURATION WITH BUSINESS

In 2007, 833,000 business operators (44%) had been operating their business continuously for up to five years, 244,000 (13%) for between five to less than ten years, and 825,000 (43%) for ten years or more. Of the 825,000 business operators who had been operating their business continuously for ten years or more, almost half (405,000) had been with their business for twenty years or more.

A significantly larger proportion of males (24%) had been with their business for twenty years or more compared to 16% of females.

Half of all non-business operators (50%) indicated they had been with their employer for less than three years, compared with one quarter of business operators (25%) who had been with their business for less than three years. In addition, 20% of non-business operators had been with their employer for ten years or more, compared with 41% of business operators who had been with their business for ten years or more.
