Abstract

Arauzo-Carod J.-M. and Viladecans-Marsal E. Industrial location at the intra-metropolitan level: the role of agglomeration economies, Regional Studies. The objective of this paper is to analyse the influence of agglomeration economies on location decisions taken by new firms inside metropolitan areas. As it is assumed that these economies differ according to firms' level of technology, the sample comprises new firms from high-, intermediate- and low-technology industries. Of particularly interest is in analysing the effects of agglomeration economies that are felt over very short distances (inside the metropolitan areas). Introduced in the estimation is the effect of the central city as a determinant for the location of new firms in the rest of the metropolitan area.

L'objectif de cet article est d'analyser l'influence des economies d'agglomeration sur les decisions prises par de nouvelles entreprises concernant l'installation de leur site dans des zones metropolitaines. Partant de l'hypothese que ces economies different en fonction du niveau technologique des entreprises, notre echantillon comprend des entreprises nouvelles d'un niveau technologique eleve, intermediaire et bas. Nous nous interessons particulierement a l'analyse des effets des economies d'agglomeration qui sont ressenties sur de tres courtes distances (a l'interieur des zones metropolitaines). Nous introduisons dans notre estimation l'effet de la ville centrale comme determinant dans le choix des sites des nouvelles entreprises dans le reste de la zone metropolitaine. Sites industriels Ville Zone metropolitaine Economies d'urbanisation Arauzo-Carod J.-M. und Viladecans-Marsal E. Industriestandorte auf intrametropolitaner Ebene: die Rolle der Agglomerationswirtschaften, Regional Studies. Mit diesem Beitrag soll der Einfluss von Agglomerationswirtschaften auf die Standortentscheidungen von neuen Firmen in metropolitanen Gebieten untersucht werden. Da wir annehmen, dass diese Wirtschaften je nach dem technologischen Niveau der Firmen unterschiedlich ausfallen, enthalt unsere Stichprobe neue Firmen aus Branchen mit hohem, mittlerem und niedrigerem technologischen Niveau. Insbesondere interessieren wir uns fur die Analyse der Auswirkungen von Agglomerationswirtschaften, die uber sehr kurze Entfernungen hinweg (innerhalb der metropolitanen Gebiete) spurbar werden. In unserer Schatzung berucksichtigen wir die Auswirkung der zentralen Stadt als Determinanten fur den Standort neuer Firmen im ubrigen metropolitanen Gebiet.

Localizacion industrial en un nivel intrametropolitano: el papel de las economias de aglomeracion, Regional Studies. El objetivo de este articulo es analizar que influencia ejercen las economias de aglomeracion cuando las nuevas empresas eligen su localizacion en areas metropolitanas. Suponiendo que estas economias difieren en funcion del nivel de tecnologia de las empresas, en nuestra muestra abarcamos nuevas empresas de industrias con tecnologiaalta, intermedia y baja. Nos interesa en particular analizar los efectos de las economias de aglomeracion que se hacen palpables sobre distancias muy cortas (dentro de areas metropolitanas). En nuestro calculo introducimos el efecto de la ciudad central como determinante para ubicar las nuevas empresas en el resto del area metropolitana.
