HENLEY A., CARRUTH A., THOMAS A. and VICKERMAN R. (1989) Location choice and labour market perceptions: a discrete choice study, Reg. Studies 23, 431–445. The location of industry in an economy raises many important issues for economists and governments interested in economic efficiency and equity. One interesting question is whether economic factors have an important role to play in explaining location patterns. This paper uses a survey data set of UK establishments in growth activities. It implements a discrete choice framework to contrast the performance of economic variables with that of establishments' perceptions about these economic conditions in explaining location choice.
