International Family Enterprise Research Academy (IFERA) collected some numbers about family businesses to confirm what several experts in the field have always claimed: that family businesses dominate most economies around the world. IFERA asked over 60 researchers and professionals dealing with family businesses in various countries to get a numerical/statistical confirmation of this hypothesis. The results confirm the leading role of family businesses in worldwide economic production and employment.
