Linkage Measures: a Revisit and a Suggested Alternative

Author

  • Junning Cai
  • Pingsun Leung

Abstract

This paper examines major linkage measures in the literature from different perspectives and attempts to clarify some of the controversies over them. The examination and clarification suggest more refined backward and forward linkage measures for linkage indices construction. The measures are then applied to analyse the linkages of Hawaii's agriculture sectors.
