Abstract
The role of size and age of firms in the process of job creation have well been analyzed empirically. But, this question have not been formally anlyzed in the context of Ethiopia.In this study, by using 15 years longituidinal data on individual establihsments in the manufacturing sector of Ethiopia, the rates of job creation and destruction are compared and analyzed for different firm size or age classes and across industries. The results of the statistical and econometric analysis suggest that smaller sized and younged aged firms are important sources of new job creation and job destruction as well. But, the results of the analysis on net employment creation suggested that, the effect of firm size on net employment creation is sensitive to the measure of size used.
