Abstract

Although not directly targeted by any of the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001, the El Paso – Ciudad Juárez borderplex economy was impacted by related administrative events that subsequently occurred. To examine what areas of the regional economy were affected, a series of statistical tests are employed. Similar to what has been documented for the New York metropolitan economy, many sectors of the borderplex escaped the aftereffects of 9/11 without observing large scale changes. Several other sectors, however, were impacted in statistically significant manners.
