Abstract

This paper considers drivers of second job holding amongst the self-employed in comparison with the employed. Econometric analysis of panel data explores whether the self-employed are more or less likely to take on a second job when already running their own business, than their employed counterparts. The findings contribute to the literature through identification of a need-based variable – difficulty in meeting housing costs – as a key driver of movements from self-employment to hybrid entrepreneurship. Findings, further, identify different patterns of second job holding by gender, particularly amongst self-employed individuals.
