This paper presents an evaluation of four location quotient regionalization techniques in twenty Finnish regions which addresses the issue of the impacts of the properties of a region on the results of regionalization. The results do not allow a generalization to be made that any one of the four location quotient techniques would always yield the best results, but they do indicate that the attributes of regions can give information which should be taken into account when selecting the best possible regionalization technique
