Some Ideas on How to Write Essay-Type Statements under Examination Conditions

Which concepts have been forgotton? Suggestions welcome!

Accessibility matrix (in network analysis) Agglomeration economies Alpha Index (network analysis) Average propensity to consume Baby Boom (regional economic significance of ...) Benchmark region Best-practice rule/method [for adjusting technical I/O coefficients over time] Beta index (in network analysis) Capital goods industry Central City (in the context of Metropolitan area definition) Central Place Theory Closed I/O Model (or an I/O model is closed with respect to households or government activities) CMSA Coefficient of localization Coefficient of specialization Cohort vs. life stage Cohort survival analysis Collapsed row model (Tiebout, Community Economic Base Study) Column vector Compositional structure Composition effect (shift and share analysis) Connection matrix (network analysis) - also called "connectivity matrix" or "adjacency matrix"
- as different from accessibility matrix
Consumption function Conway, Richard (Dick) - "Special Topic: Multipliers" (Class Handout) [from: Economic Forecaster, Feb.1999]
Dependent & independent variables Diameter of a network Differential effect (shift and share analysis) Direct Coefficients (I/O analysis) Distance elasticity of demand Diversification (Regional diversification) Economic base theory and analysis Economic impact analysis Economies of scale or "scale economies" Economies of agglomeration or "agglomeration economies" Elasticity of demand Endogenous variable Engel's law or Engel's curve Exogenous variable Externalities, external economies (such as agglomeration economies) Fertility rates: General, age-specific, etc.) [as different from ("raw") birth rates] Forward & backward linkages Functional region Gamma Index (Network analysis) Gravity model Homogeneous region Hotelling, Harold Hoover, Edgar (No, not the former long-time FBI director) "Income created per dollor of local consumption sales" ("icles") Income elasticity of demand Induced effects (as different from "indirect" ( = inter-industry) effects) Input-Output analysis Intermediate products |
Labor productivity
Land-intensive activity Leontief inverse / Leontief coefficients Localization coefficient (as different from a specialization coefficient) Localization economies Location quotient Location quotient: Assumptions made when using LQ for identifying a region's economic base Lowry model (spatial allocation model) Marginal propensity to consume
Model Multiplier [see also: regional employment- or income multiplier] - Types of multipliers
- Variable sizes of multipliers
- Stability of multipliers (types of instabilities)
Net out- (or in-) migration Nodal degree Nodal region Nodes "Non-basic" activities PMSA Population pyramid Price elasticity of demand Primary, secondary, tertiary activities Probability Producer service(s) Product cycle Production function
Propensity to consume locally (pcl) Quaternary activities Quinary activities Roundabout production
Reaction coefficient Regional coefficients (as different from "technical" coefficients) Regional economic development Regional employment or income multipliers (size of multiplier tends to respond to which variables? [and under what conditions?]) Regional Science Row vector Schaffer, William Shift & share analysis Short-term multiplier (as different from long-term m.) [see Tiebout, Ch.6] SIC classification Spatial demand function/ or curve Spatial differentation Structure & structural change Taaffe (Edward) and (Howard) Gauthier: Geography of Transportation - Readings & Handout "Structural analysis of transportation networks"
Technical coefficients (as different from "regional" coefficients) Tiebout, Charles Transactions Table (as different from Coefficients Table) Transition (probability) matrix Ullman, Edward L. Uniform (or homogenous) region |
