    Abstract

    El objetivo de este trabajo es evaluar el riesgo de mortalidad empresarial. Para ello, en una muestra de más de 11.741 empresas pertenecientes al sector textil-confección se ha estudiado, junto con otros factores, la influencia de la proximidad geográfica (efecto distrito) y la actividad productiva principal (efecto subsector) en la supervivencia de las empresas textiles españolas. Desde un punto de vista teórico-práctico esta industria es especialmente relevante para realizar ese tipo de estudios al menos por dos motivos: 1) porque después de la liberalización del comercio textil se ha visto inmersa en una profunda crisis en las economías más desarrolladas, y 2) porque tiende a agruparse geográficamente en torno a clusters o distritos industriales. Los resultados obtenidos sugieren que el riesgo de mortalidad empresarial se ve reducido por aspectos relativos a la empresa como la antigüedad y el subsector de actividad y, bajo determinadas circunstancias, por la localización en un distrito industrial. PALABRAS CLAVE: mortalidad empresarial, textil, distrito industrial
