Abstract

This article explores the conceptual and empirical relationships among connectivity, employment, and specialization in advanced business services (ABS) in major cities in the United States. Correlation and regression analysis produces three chief empirical conclusions: First, the distribution of employment predicts and explains the level of connectivity; second, specialization does not predict connectivity; and, closer examination shows that these results vary by sector, which might relate to the informational characteristics of different types of ABS agglomerations. These conclusions demonstrate the continued relevance of agglomerative dynamics as they influence the networks and hierarchies of the ABS and corporate spatial structures.
