Abstract

This article measures geographical concentration of China's manufacturing industries by incorporating traditional indexes of inequality and measures of spatial autocorrelation at the global level and by applying and comparing the focal location quotient (FLQ), to the local Moran's I. At the global level, the results show that this combination indexes could serve as useful dependent variables in modeling agglomeration effects across industries. At the local level, specific spatial patterns of production concentrations are identified for textiles, machinery, food manufacturing, and the electronics and telecommunication industries. FLQ tends to generate more generalized patterns than does the local Moran statistic
