Abstract: Whereas FESER and BERGMAN, 2000, developed the concept of national-level cluster templates and introduced a systematic methodology to identify such clusters, their technique and results were based on the now-outdated Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) system for categorizing industries. We update their results using the 1997 Benchmark Input-Output Accounts for the United States, which are based on the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). Since the treatment of services is much more comprehensive under NAICS, we are able to expand on the Feser and Bergman manufacturing templates to identify more comprehensive mixed-sector templates. The cluster templates we determine can provide a foundation for regional economic development strategies.
