This study explores the role of micro, small, and medium enterprises in the growth of per capita income, using an expanded database for firms in the formal manufacturing sector with fewer than 10, 20, 100, or 250 employees. Employing regression models from the economic growth literature, this study finds evidence of a causal connection between economic growth and the prevalence of firms of medium size or smaller (250 employees or less). However, it finds only limited correlative or causal connection between growth and the prevalence of small or micro firms with fewer than 10, 20, or 100 employees.
