    Abstract

    Between 1975 and 1999, the Greater Paris area gained more than 500,000 jobs. If employment has increased in the outer suburbs, the core (centre and inner suburbs), is losing jobs. The movement of jobs away from the centre has, for the one half, contributed to the appearance or reinforcement of industrial clusters in peripheral locations and, for the other half, resulted in the extension of the suburban area between and around these clusters. Overall, employment is less concentrated in 1999 than it was in 1975. At the same time, the spatial sectoral concentration has little changed. Each industry would become concentrated in a specific part of the region, which would explain both the sectoral concentration and the overall decentralisation. The deconcentration of employment, or spatial disintegration, therefore would occur according to the sector, i.e. vertical disintegration. Logically, this reorganization should lead to the emergence of specialised clusters throughout the region.
