A Spatial Analysis of Ethnic Self-Employment in Metropolitan Atlanta

A Spatial Analysis of Ethnic Self-Employment in Metropolitan Atlanta Abstract: The increased ethnic and racial diversification in North American cities have offered promising breeding places for new business activities of individuals with various ethnic origins. Using data derived from the 2000 Decennial Census and spatial regression modeling, this study examines the geographic patterns of self-employed labor force in metropolitan Atlanta, a region with increasing population diversity fueled by employment opportunities. Different from most place-based small case studies, this work adopts a comparative framework to investigate spatial effects on entrepreneurship across ethnic groups from the geography of both ethnic residence and local business concentrations in a rapidly diversifying metropolis in the U.S. South. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Southeastern Geographer University of North Carolina Press
