Calculating potential refugee entrepreneurs

Calculations taken from TERN

  1. Working-age refugee population = total national refugee population x % working age
  2. Number of refugees exploring self-employment = working-age refugee population x 0.2 (based on the assumption that 20% of refugee are interested in self-employment1)
  3. Potential refugee entrepreneurs = number of refugees exploring self-employment x 0.5 (assuming that roughly half have a realistic chance to build a livelihood from entrepreneurship based on TERN’s own acceptance rate)
