We investigate whether the quality of jobs in spin-off firms is higher than in other new firms. In the analysis, we distinguish various types of spin-off. It is also an important feature of the analysis that the firms compared are genuinely new, i.e. that they are not the result of restructuring, reorganisation or the addition of new activities in existing firms that just formally involve the registration of new companies.
