The role of destination spillovers and technological intensity in the location of manufacturing and services’ firms

Focusing on the characteristics of destinations, we seek to identify the relevance of spatial spillovers while driving location choices of manufacturing and services firms. With this objective, we apply a spatial conditional logit equation to model empirically the behaviour of 1 092 864 firms established in 316 municipalities of the Spanish Mediterranean Arc during the…

Industrial location, spatial discrete choice models and the need to account for neighbourhood effects

This research, following the original contributions of Vichiensan et al. (J East Asia Soc Trans Stud 6:3789–3802, 2005) and Autant-Bernard (Eur Plan Stud 14:1187–1208, 2006), employs a spatial conditional logit framework in order to explore the role that inter-territorial spillovers play in driving the location choices of industrial firms. After introducing neighbourhood effects into the theoretical…
