This paper examines the pattern of self-employment in Poland based on the theory of Dawson, Henley, and Latreille. I particularly focus on the movement of young people in and out of self-employment using available statistical data from Poland. Forces that influence whether a person becomes self-employed are the following: due to legal issues and individuals needs, people including young ones were particularly likely to move to self-employment. I also consider that previous earnings were a motivation for moving toward self-employment. Nevertheless the Polish regulations and pensions problems are influencing the probability of leaving self-employment are different across the two countries.
