Student: Mikhail Kornev

Supervisor: Vera Ivanova

Faculty: St.Petersburg School of Economics and Management

Educational Programme: Economics (Bachelor)

Year of Graduation: 2020

While more and more detailed micro-data on manufactured industries are accumulating in the world, more research exists in order to analyze geographical concentration patterns of industrial units. At this point, enough pieces of research are accumulated in developed countries; at the same time, a lack of research in Russia appears. The study provides a detailed picture of the geographic structure of manufacturing and creative industries in St. Petersburg and Leningrad Region. For this, we compile a unique database of about 5.5 thousand companies. Patterns of geographic concentration are used to identify with kernel distance-based methods. The key conclusions of the article are connected to the characterization of the level of concentration for different industries and the discovered centers of attraction for firms of different industries. These findings allow the local government to develop and provide the identified clusters with financial and labor resources in order to increase the economic competitiveness of these industries and the territory as a whole. Key words: agglomeration, creative and manufacturing industries, St Petersburg, distance-based measures
