dc.description.abstractRecent empirical evidence suggests that the density of local economic activity – measured asthe number of employees per squared kilometer – positively affects local averageproductivity. In this paper we use British data from the European Community HouseholdPanel to ask whether local density affects employer?provided training. We find that training isless frequent in economically denser areas. We explain this result as the outcome of theinteraction between the positive pooling effects and negative poaching and turnover effectsof agglomeration. The size of the negative effect of density is not negligible: when evaluatedat the average firm size in the local area, a 10 percent increase in density reduces theprobability of employer?provided training by 0.07, more than 20 percent of the averageincidence of training in the UK during the sample period.en_US
