The examine included during this monograph was once at the beginning undertaken as a part of a Ph. D. dissertation submitted to the collage of lllinois in 1973. Revisions have been comprehensive on the collage of Delaware. i would like to gratefully recognize the help of Hugh O. Nourse who recommended the research, Paul Chouinard who ably and thoroughly translated verbal directions into desktop programmes, and Harold F. Williamson, Jr. and Peter Nijkamp who commented atlength on previous drafts of the manuscript. swift and actual typing of numerous drafts of the manuscript and worthy editorial tips have been supplied by way of my spouse, Sally M. Latham.

It would have been preferable to have identified material orientation using the geographic association between a potentially material oriented industry, as indicated by the percentage of inputs obtained from a primary resource extractor, and the primary NOTES 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 45 resource extractor. The necessary limitation on the number of industries used precluded calculation of such geographic associations, however. A section in Chapter 5 on industrial complexes outlines a procedure used by Czamanski [9] which could be used to identify industries which have input-output structures that are sufficiently alike to possibly produce significant agglomerative economies if firms in these industries locate near to each other even if they do not trade with each other.

Potential agglomerative economies are identified using flows of inputs and outputs between pairs of manufacturing industries. Potential agglomerative economies affecting more than two industries are examined in Chapter 4. S. is footloose or free to locate in any of a large number of locations based upon primarily noneconomic factors [40: 80]. If this is true, one might expect a greater degree of dispersion or randomness in location than if nonrandomly distributed economic factors are important in determining the locations of most firms.

Labor laws which may vary from location to location and industry to industry [15: 129-135]' All of these affect production costs directly or indirectly. Lichtenberg differentiates labor orientation in low-skill industries from that in high-skill industries [29: 48-56]' In this study only direct production labor costs will be used to identify potentially labor oriented industries. All authors seem to agree with Fuchs that 'labor costs will exert a locational pull in proportion to the part that labor costs play in total costs' [14: 165].
