Caused by heavy structural change the Ruhr area is no more a pure industrial region. The employment structure of the region as a whole seems to develop in a very similar way like the entire North Rhine-Westphalia. However, local communities show a clear heterogeneity. The paper presents an empirical analysis of employment trends in the Ruhr area and in North Rhine-Westphalia from 1999 to 2005 with regard to spatial deconcentration and functional specialization. Cluster analysis is used to classify local communities by equal employment structure and trends. The result shows clear evidence for deconcentration only in the secondary sector and a polycentric employment structure. - (IfL)
