Abstract
This thesis investigates differences in the industrial composition of employment and value added across COROP regions in the Netherlands for each year over the period 1995-2007. It is found that the direction of the regional specialisation trend – as measured by the Coefficient of Regional Specialisation – has fallen for employment but has risen for value added. This relation is further explored by decomposing the overall trend into different country parts and into separate sectors.
