Import: An Analytic and Econometric Study of Regions
Jönköping University, Jönköping International Business School.
2007 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

This is unique study of import is of the greatest importance, since no studies of import

across regions have earlier been performed. Import is a driving force of innovations and

therefore most important for a stable growth. This master thesis is about interregional import,

as well as the strong spatial concentration of imports in the Swedish system of network.

Five hypothesises are presented in the last section of chapter two. The variables to be used

in the analysis are then divided into two main groups, before empirically tested in different

combinations of regression models.

The main conclusion of this thesis is a significant correlation between import, and the two

independent variables export and firm R&D, and its result goes in line with the theoretical

framework of this thesis, regional specialisation in import and export nodes
