Formatted abstract
Empirical literature on firm growth has used standard regression analysis without regard to econometric time series issues. Given the likelihood of non-stationary firm size data, a Bayesian econometric approach is used to analyse the principal equation emanating from Gibrat's law. The results enable probabilistic statements to be made about the relationship of firm growth and size, and predictions to be made about future growth.
