A Note on Firm Age and the Margins of Exports: First Evidence from Germany

Research output: Journal contributionsJournal articlesResearchpeer-review


This article uses a new tailor-made data set to empirically investigate the link between firm age and the extensive and intensive margins of exports for the first time for Germany. Results turn out to be fully in line with theoretical considerations. Older firms are more often exporters, export more and more different goods to more different destination countries, and export to more distant destination markets.
