Abstract: Measuring entrepreneurship is a starting point for empirical studies investigating determinants of entrepreneurship or/and the impact of entrepreneurship on the economy. The article provides an overview of currently available harmonized cross-country time-series datasets on entrepreneurship and examines correlations between data for alternative indicators. Each indicator is related to the closest theoretical concept of entrepreneurship that exposes a specific dimension of entrepreneurship. The results confirm that entrepreneurship is a multi-dimensional phenomenon and indicate that conceptually and methodologically studies should focus on a specific dimension of entrepreneurship rather than trying to be too general in investigation and interpretation. Moreover, when investigating a certain dimension of entrepreneurship, the outcome of the analysis may be importantly influenced by the choice of the indicator related to this conceptual dimensionand its data source.
