抄録: We analyze industrial specialization and geographic concentration patterns within the NAFTA regional integration area during 1988-2000 and examine the determinants of spatial concentration. The results indicate that NAFTA countries have become increasingly dissimilar over time. A changing spatial structure of total NAFTA manufacturing is also evident. Manufacturing is increasingly relocating to Mexico, which comes at the expense of the US. In addition, there is evidence of a general upward trend in the degree of relative geographic concentration of North American industries. Labor-intensive and low-technology activities appear to be the most spatially concentrated industries, exhibiting a strong increasing trend. Comparative advantage factors largely explain geographic concentration of industries across NAFTA countries, indicating the empirical relevance of traditional trade theory in the NAFTA case.
