dc.description.abstractThis study analyses relative sectoral specialisation of EU regions on the basis of investmentand employment patterns. Controlling for heteroscedasticity and potential endogeneity in theeconometric analysis, we find that relative specialisation in manufacturing sectors is higher incentral regions. Relative specialisation in services sectors, instead, is stronger inadministrative centres as well as peripheral regions. A higher local level of sectoraleconomies of scale and of productivity strongly increases relative investments inmanufacturing sectors. Lower (higher) regional labour costs attract, in particular, higherrelative employment shares in labour-intensive (human capital-intensive) sectors.en_US
