Une analyse exploratoire des interactions spatiales dans la démographie des firmes de secteurs du commerce et des services de proximité.

Research output: Contribution in Book/Catalog/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This paper reports the results of an exploratory spatial data analysis (ESDA) applied to the firm demography of a selection of retail and consumer service industries in Belgium over the 1998-2001 period. Evidences are collected at very disaggregated geographical and industrial levels. They do not only contribute to a better understanding of the general geographical pattern of the firm demography of these industries, but they also lead to interesting questions regarding Industrial Organization by examining the space-time structures of entries and exits.
