RESUMEN En el presente trabajo estudiamos la evolución durante el período 1996 2007 de la heterogeneidad dimensional de las empresas localizadas en los distritos industriales españoles. Los resultados confirman la presencia de un modelo de distrito con una estructura cada vez más heterogénea, si bien se observan mayores niveles de homogeneidad respecto a las empresas no localizadas en distritos. Este hecho permite confirmar que el distrito todavía ejerce una notable influencia sobre sus empresas. Por otro lado, este resultado varía según los diversos sectores, siendo los distritos de las fashion-led industries los que presentan mayores tendencias al crecimiento de su heterogeneidad interna. ABSTRACT In this paper we study the evolution over the period 1996 to 2007 of the dimensional heterogeneity of the firms located in Spanish industrial districts. The results confirm the presence of a district model with an increasingly heterogeneous structure, although higher levels of homogeneity are observed compared to those companies not located in districts. This fact confirms that the district still exerts a significant influence on their companies. On the other hand, this result varies across industrial sectors, presenting fashion-led districts the higher growth trends of its internal heterogeneity.
