dentifying which industries are localized within a region is important for regional development and planning as analysts seek to build on the existing strengths of a community.In this publication, we introduce a free, downloadable software tool that quantifies the degree to which an industry is localized in a geographic space. This software tool allows planners to identify which, if any, industries are localized and use that information when assessing regional development proposals.
