Abstract

In line with further investigation into the issue of the entrepreneurial attitude, this study extends the work by Faghih et al. (2019) to introduce a new concept named Entrepreneurial Attitude Entropy. The way that this study follows to achieve this objective is based on Shannon’s entropy appraisal method. Considering the nature of the entropy method, which refers to the rate of the chaos and irregularity, this study would be able to rank the GEM member countries in terms of Entrepreneurial Attitude Entropy. The main finding of this study, foremost, was the strong quadratic equation estimated between Entrepreneurial Attitude Entropy and Human Development Index (HDI) which fully conforms to some theories like “planned behavior.”
