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


In Chap. 3 the discussion focused on tools for analyzing regional performance over time relative to other regions and on assessing which industry sectors are performing well or poorly in a region, both relative to other regions and relative to other industries within the region. But a further important consideration in regional economic analysis is the inter-industry linkages existing within a region and to evaluate the impacts of changes (growth or decline) in one industry sector on other sectors. Typically this has been done through a technique known as input-output analysis.
