(2007). 4 shows the results of the final specific models for the three population size groups of MSAs and contrasts them with the results of the general model. From the information in the table, it is possible to draw the conclusions set out below. 2 Population size effects While the population size factor had a significant effect on the endogenous regional employment growth performance of MSAs, as is seen for all three of the size groups, the direction of that effect varied.

Additionally the modeling also gives explicit attention to testing for the effect of metropolitan size on the role of those explanatory variables. We also focus specific attention on the nature of the spatial patterns of endogenous growth performance for the US MSAs, mapping both their scores on the dependent variable and MSA scores on the residuals derived from the regression modeling. 1 Background Research For a long time, regional analysts have focused attention on explaining regional differences in economic growth in the US.

The reason for adopting this approach is pragmatic as secondary data to perform an Differentials in endogenous regional employment growth in the US ­21 employment-­based regional shift-­share analysis tends to be readily available in most countries and may typically be achieved using employment in industry sector data available in the census. The regional shift component derived from a shift-­share analysis is a reasonable surrogate measure of the degree to which employment growth or decline in a region is due to endogenous or ‘within-­region’ factors and processes versus exogenous factors as represented more by the national shift and the industry-­mix shift effects derived from a regional shift-­share analysis.
