A New Method of Estimating Locality of Industry Cluster Regions Using Large-scale Business Transaction Data

  title={A New Method of Estimating Locality of Industry Cluster Regions Using Large-scale Business Transaction Data},
  author={Yuki Akeyama and Yuki Akiyama and Ryosuke Shibasaki},
In an industry cluster many firms tightly coupled with each other via business transaction, which is important factor of economic activities in local or urban area. Furthermore, the Japanese government tries to understand industrial structure or expanse of transactions of local area for effective revitalization of local area, but previous studies of industrial area is limited to case study for difficulty of collecting firm data. Meanwhile, large-scale transaction data appear and we can extract…
