Abstract

The influences of urban form and transport infrastructure on economic performance show up in several contemporary policy debates. The paper probes these relationships using two scales of analysis. At the macro scale, an econometric analysis using data across 47 US metropolitan areas reveals that employment densities and urban primacy are positively associated with worker productivity, suggesting the presence of agglomeration economies. An intrametropolitan analysis using data on sub-districts of the San Francisco Bay Area reinforces the finding of the macro-scale analysis
