The geographic evolution of the U.S. auto industry (pt. 2)


  • Thomas H. Klier
  • Daniel P. McMillen


The authors examine changes in the footprint of the auto industry in the United States, starting in 1980 and tracking them through 2003. Their formal analysis of assembly and supplier plant locations traces the reorientation of the auto region from one that extends east–west to one that stretches north–south over this period. To accommodate the large size of the file and the number of illustrations, the article has been divided into two smaller files.
