In diesem Artikel wird ein multimethodischer Ansatz vorgestellt, der der Abgrenzung und Analyse von Software-Clustern auf Basis volkswirtschaftlicher Daten dient. Zunächst wird im Rahmen eines quantitativen Top-down-Ansatzes das Gründungsgeschehen, die Bruttowertschöpfung sowie die räumliche Ballung von Be-trieben und Beschäftigen ausgewertet und am Beispiel des Soft-ware-Clusters Rhein Main Neckar den bislang verwendeten Ab-grenzungen gegenübergestellt. Im Anschluss werden die so er-haltenen Ergebnisse mittels eines qualitativen Bottom-up-Ansatzes durch eine empirische Analyse überprüft und die ge-wonnenen Erkenntnisse miteinander verglichen.
