Working Papers from European Institute - History

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to analyse the determinants of the localisation of industrial activity in Spain during the second half of thenineteenth century and the effects of economic integration in Spain's industrial geography. First, we review the historical analysis of these changes. Second, we summarise the theories that explain industrial location patterns. Third, we construct different measures of industrial specialisation and geographical concentration. Finally, we perform an econometric analysis of the determinants of industrial location at two points in time, 1856 and 1893, using the techniques of spatial econometrics.
