About the Index:   The Kauffman Index of Entrepreneurship is a series of annual reports that measures U.S. entrepreneurship across national, state, and metro levels. Rather than focusing on inputs, the Kauffman Index focuses primarily on entrepreneurial outputs—the actual results of entrepreneurial activity—such as new companies, business density, and growth rates. The Kauffman Index series consists of three in-depth studies: Startup Activity, Main Street Entrepreneurship, and Growth Entrepreneurship.
