Part of the Advances in Spatial Science book series (ADVSPATIAL)


In this chapter, the methodology developed for multi-regional economic systems analysis by Miyazawa (1966, 1971) and extended by Sonis and Hewings (1993), is directed to an examination of the interdependencies between industry groups within one region rather than the interdependencies between regions. The interactions between some a priori defined strategic industry groups can be revealed by drawing on Miyazawa’s concepts of internal and external multipliers and Sonis and Hewings’ (1993) extension to the synergetic interactions of regional sub-systems (see also chapter 2 in this volume). In this way, the dependencies and interdependencies between groups of sectors of an economy can be revealed.
