  • Wilhelm J. Meester
Part of the Contributions to Economics book series (CE)


Research question 2 deals with the possible relation between the rating of locational environments on the one hand, and firm characteristics on the other. The demands that an entrepreneur makes on a location for his firm will depend partly on firm characteristics such as type of activity, firm size, and so on. Therefore, it is natural to assume that firm characteristics will also affect the rating of possible locations in terms of high and low.
