The Influence of Location Factors

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


In Chapter 5, it was shown how entrepreneurs rate possible locations in terms of high and low. Chapter 6 considered which characteristics of the subject - in this case, the firm — exert an influence on that rating. Next, the logical step would thus be to examine the influence of the characteristics of the object. This may be done by ascertaining which features of the spatial elements (be they towns or regions) determine how they are rated by the entrepreneurs. At this point, we have arrived at research question 3, which refers to this relation.
