    Along the lines of other works, this research tries to analyse which is the relativeweight of the set of industrial factors (industry effect) compared to that of the set of firminternal resources (firm effect) as regards the determination of firm profitability. Withthat aim, we have carried out a variance components analysis that should verify orrefute the results obtained in previous studies, by using a different group of enterpriseswith more up-to-date information about their profitability. More precisely, our sample isformed by 679 Valencian Community-based manufacturing firms, for which we haveprofitability data corresponding to the 1994-1998 five-year period, meaning that thestatistical analysis is applied to 3395 observations.Key words: En la línea de otros trabajos, en esta investigación tratamos de analizar cuál es la importancia relativa del conjunto de factores industriales (efecto sector) frente al conjunto de características internas de las empresas (efecto empresa) en la determinación de la rentabilidad empresarial. Para ello, realizamos un análisis de componentes de la varianza, con el objetivo de confirmar o refutar los resultados obtenidos por los estudios previos, utilizando un conjunto distinto de empresas con datos más actualizados sobre su rentabilidad. En concreto, nuestra muestra está compuesta por 679 empresas manufactureras de la Comunidad Valenciana, de las que se dispone de datos sobre su rentabilidad durante cinco años (1994-1998), de forma que el análisis estadístico se aplica sobre 3395 observaciones.
