The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

1987 Minnesota New Firms Study: An Exploration of New Firms and Their Economic Contributions.

Reynolds, Paul D. and Brenda Miller.

Jobs provided by new firms accounted for 42-99 percent of the net increase in jobs in Minnesota between 1978 and 1986 and 12-29 percent of the net increase in personal income. This study considers the mechanisms behind new firm contributions to the state's economy, how their contributions can be predicted, and what implications this holds for government strategies. A 1986 survey of over 1,000 new Minnesota firms provided the data for this report. A summary of this study appeared in the April 1988 CURA Reporter.
