The changing spatial pattern of firms in Amsterdam: empirical evidence

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



In this article is analysed to what extent the economic position of the city of Amsterdam is being influenced by the loss of population and employment. Particular attention is paid to the different factors which have determined the development of employment in Amsterdam. It appears that the decrease of jobs in the city is primarily caused by contraction and liquidation of manufacturing firms and by relocation of firms in the service industry including wholesale firms, out of the administrative area. This applies even more strongly for the inner city. The employment in the urban renewal areas has fallen less quickly than in the inner city. (AGD).
