Abstract

Between 1955 and 1977, for example, physical output of US industrial chemicals grew at an average rate of 7.9 % a year as compared to 3.8 % a year for all manufactured products. Which has been the locational behavior and the pattern of growth of the US chemicals and allied products industry?
