Abstract

This paper assesses the localization pattern of German manufacturing and service industries through the distance-based approach. It is found that the location pattern of 71% of the manufacturing industries departs from randomness in the sense that plants exhibit significant geographical localization. Moreover, it is found that geographical localization is not restricted to the manufacturing sector, but that it plays an equally important role for service industries
