    [fre] La concentration géographique des industries françaises par Françoise Maurel et Béatrice Sédillot . L'objet de cet article est d'apprécier empiriquement la concentration géographique des industries françaises, à partir d'une modélisation des choix de localisation des établissements suggérée par Ellison-Glaeser ( 1994). L' indicateur de concentration géographique utilisé mesure la corrélation entre les décisions d'implantation de deux établissements d'un même secteur et permet ainsi de cerner les externalités de localisation propres à une industrie. À côté des industries extractives et traditionnelles, certaines industries de haute technologie apparaissent fortement localisées. Par ailleurs, pour certaines industries, les avantages de l'agglomération dépassent les frontières du département et se mesurent à l'échelon de la région. [eng] Geographical Concentration of French Industries by Françoise Maurel and Béatrice Sédillot . This article uses a model of production location choices suggested by Ellison Glaeser (1994) to produce an empirical assessment of the geographical concentration of French industries. The geographical concentration indicator used measures the correlation between the location choices of two businesses in the same sector, thus enabling the specific externalities of location choices for a given industry to be identified. Like mining and traditional industries, some high-tech industries seem to be densely clustered in certain areas. The advantages of clustering for some industries reach beyond local administrative boundaries and extend to entire regions.
