Exploring the detailed location patterns of UK manufacturing industries using microgeographic data

  • Gilles Duranton
  • Henry G. Overman

We use a point-pattern methodology to explore the detailed location patterns of UK manufacturing industries. In particular, we consider the location of entrants and exiters vs. continuing establishments, domestic- vs. foreign-owned, large vs. small, and affiliated vs. independent. We also examine co-localisation between vertically linked industries. Our analysis provides a set of new stylised facts and confirmation for others.
