Abstract

The second phase of the Industrial Location Policies Research Project (RPO 672-91) has generated a series of UDD Discussion Papers in the following three categories: (1) Descriptive studies on observed location patterns and policy planning and implementation experiences, (2) theoretical development and policy simulation studies, and (3) empirical studies of the firm's location behavior. This paper as part of the descriptive studies documents the changing location patterns of population and employment in the Seoul region during 1960-1981, using the population census, the annual manufacturing survey, and other secondary data. The analysis shows strong evidence of decentralization of both population and employment, the latter, however, decentralizing much faster than the former. The findings in this paper "set the stage" for further detailed analyses in the research project regarding possible impacts of various spatial policies on the observed location patterns.
