This paper aims to assess the extent of agglomeration processes across industries and along time within a regional economic system by means of a distance-based measure. Specifically, we compute Marcon & Puech’s (2017) M for every industry in Sardinia in 2007 and 2012. This computation allows us to to assess the underlying patterns of agglomeration or dispersion throughout the Great Recession, through a study that is not limited to manufacturing activities but also covers service industries and other sectors.
