Agglomeration, Diversity and Regional Growth
() and Benny Borgman
Abstract: The objective of this paper is to empirically examine the
importance of the structure of agglomeration on productivity and growth. To
accomplish this we will include the degree of co-agglomeration of similar
industries as an explanatory variable in the empirical analysis, while
simultaneously controlling for the degree of industry-specific
agglomeration. To the best of our knowledge, the impact of co-agglomerated
industries on productivity has not previously been investigated. The
empirical analysis confirms a positive statistical relationship between
interdependent and co-located industries on labour productivity.
