Abstract

El objetivo de este trabajo es evaluar el riesgo de mortalidad empresarial. Para ello, en una muestra de mas de 11.741 empresas pertenecientes al sector textil-confeccion se ha estudiado, junto con otros factores, la influencia de la proximidad geografica (efecto distrito) y la actividad productiva principal (efecto subsector) en la supervivencia de las empresas textiles espanolas. Desde un punto de vista teorico-practico esta industria es especialmente relevante para realizar ese tipo de estudios al menos por dos motivos: 1) porque despudes de la liberalizacion del comercio textil se ha visto inmersa en una profunda crisis en las economias mais desarrolladas, y 2) porque tiende a agruparse geograficamente en torno a clusters o distritos industriales. Los resultados obtenidos sugieren que el riesgo de mortalidad empresarial se ve reducido por aspectos relativos a la empresa como la antiguedad y el subsector de actividad y, bajo determinadas circunstancias, por la localizacion en un distrito industrial. PALABRAS CLAVE: mortalidad empresarial, textil, distrito industrial
