Abstract

In this paper, we adopt the viewpoint that not only the size of sectoral linkages is relevant but also the economic distance between sectors. To measure distance, we define the average propagation length as the average number of steps it takes an exogenous change in one sector to affect the value of production in another sector. This distance does not depend on whether the linkages are forward or backward in nature. Combining the size of the linkages and the distance between sectors, allows us to visualize the production structure in terms of production chains. The empirical application studies the Andalusian economy. En este artículo adoptamos el punto de vista de que no sólo es relevante el tamaño de los eslabonamientos sectoriales, sino también la distancia económica entre los sectores. Para medir esta distancia, definimos la longitud media de propagación como una representación en promedio del número de pasos necesarios para que un cambio exógeno en un sector afecte al valor de la producción en otro sector. Esta distancia es independiente del carácter -hacia adelante o hacia atrás- de los eslabonamientos. El análisis conjunto del tamaño de los eslabonamientos y de la distancia entre sectores nos permite visualizar la estructura de la producción en términos de cadenas productivas. La aplicación empírica estudia la economía andaluza.
