    Abstract

    MCCANN P. and DEWHURST J. H. LL. (1998) Regional size, industrial location and input-output expenditure coefficients, Reg. Studies 32 , 435-444. This paper develops some of the themes raised in a recent paper by FLEGG et al. , 1995. The question we explore is the relationship between the size of a region and the values of the expenditure coefficients, as estimated using location quotients. By using hypothetical examples we show that there is no theoretical relationship between regional size and the value of a regional expenditure coefficient. The reason is that it depends on the spatial distribution of activity and industrial linkages. On the other hand, it would also appear that in many cases there does seem to be an empirical relationship, and that this observation is worthy of further research. MCCANN P. et DEWHURST J. H. LL.

Cet article developpe certaines des questions soulevees recemment dans celui de FLEGG et al., 1995. Le theme que nous explorerons est celui de la relation entre la taille d'une region et les valeurs des coefficients de depense, estimees en utilisant des quotients de localisation. A partir d'exemples hypothetiques, nous demontrerons qu'il n'y a pas de relation theorique entre la taille d'une region et la valeur d'un coefficient regional de depense. La raison en est que ce coefficient depend de la distribution spatiale de l'activite et des liens industriels. Cependant, il apparait que dans de nombreux cas, on semble pouvoir constater une relation empirique, et cette observation est digne d'etre approfondie par de plus amples recherches.
