Philip Israilevich made significant contributions to regional economics and regional science in a number of fields. He is particularly well known for his work on structural change in regional economies (Hewings, et al., 1998, Israilevich, et al., 1997) and for his work on regional economic performance in a decision-making context (Schindler, et al., 1997). He had scientific interests in a related set of issues concerning estimation of regional input-output coefficients, embedded in an accounting framework (Israilevich, et al., 1996), and in the broader context of CGE models (Israilevich 2001). Issues related to the use of survey data and non-survey methods in the determination of input-output coefficients were important themes in his work (Jackson, et al., 1992) and in a 1991 paper (Israilevich and Hewings, 1991) he combines individual establishment-level data with non-survey based regional purchase coefficients to examine the assumption of identity between national and regional technologies underlying use of non-survey methods.
