Abstract

A model of employment location, which was developed and applied to Bogota, Colombia, in an earlier World Bank research project, was estimated with a fresh set of data obtained from a sample survey of manufacturing establishments in the Seoul region. The results from the Seoul data are much more robust than those of Bogota and strongly support the empirical evidence obtained from the Bogota study. The patterns of employment location in rapidly growing LDC cities are by no means random. The empirical findings from these two studies should offer the behavioral underpinnings required for sound policy analyses.
