Summary: Methods of Interregional and Regional Analysis introduces students to the principles of regional science and focuses on the key methods used in regional analysis, including regional and interregional input-output analysis, econometrics (regional and spatial), programming and industrial and urban complex analysis, gravity and spatial interaction models, SAM and social accounting (welfare) analysis, and applied general interregional equilibrium models. The coher ...show moreent development of the materials contained in the set of chapters provides students with a comprehensive background and understanding of how to investigate key regional problems.
For the research scholar, this publication constitutes an up-to-date source book of the basic elements of each major regional science technique. More significantly, it points to new directions for future research and ways interregional and regional analytic approaches can be fused to realize much more probing attacks on regional and spatial problems--a contribution far beyond what is available in the literature.
This landmark textbook marks the launch of the Regional Science Studies Series which has been endorsed by the Regional Science Association International.
