Author(s): Ana Belén Fernández Casado, Piedad Miñarro Casaú

The article hereby analyses the influence of psychological factors on entrepreneurship of people with disabilities, focusing on the dimension "Personal Self-knowledge". Its aim is to look into the extent of such an influence on this collective when launching an entrepreneurial activity as well as to know both, the competence self-evaluation in people with disabilities and the factors or barriers, which in their opinion limit such entrepreneurship. The data used in this article are the result of a survey which was conducted between November and December 2018 on a sample of residents in Spain who have physical, sensory and organic disabilities. The technical sheet of such survey appears referenced in the Article of Barba-Sánchez, published in this review. It was developed by the University of Murcia within the framework of the Project "Disability and entrepreneurship. Competence Analysis"(CSO2016-75818-R) and was funded by the National R+D+I Plan.
