Resumen: Together with the general and sector environment and various internal factors, firm size is one of the main groups of factors determining export activity. However, few works have examined this aspect, with the studies of Alonso and Donoso (1994, 1998) standing out in the Spanish case. The objective of this empirical work is, on the one hand, to describe the size of non-consolidated exporting Spanish SMEs or those not exporting but interested in export and, on the other hand, to assess the possible relationships between export activity and the size and other demographic characteristics of the firms participating in this study.
