The GEDI compared the contextual features of entrepreneurship in 71 countries over a decade, including both quantitative measurements (such as the number of existing firms and startups) and qualitative measurements (such as the education level of founders and employees or the number of high-growth startups). It focuses on three broad areas: Entrepreneurial attitudes: a society's basic attitudes toward entrepreneurship, as reflected in education and social stability. Entrepreneurial activity: what people are doing to improve the quality of human resources and technological efficiency? Entrepreneurial aspirations: how much of the entrepreneurial activity is directed toward innovation, high-impact entrepreneurship and globalization.
