Abstract

The paper focuses on the identification of perspective clusters in BanskáBystrica region. It uses national and regional data about the employment and anal-yses the regional and industrial share of businesses on the total employment (both in Slovakia and in the industry as a whole). It utilizes the static location quotient to identify the most concentrated employment in Banská Bystrica region in 2013 and 2014 and static shift-share analysis in order to quantify changes in the period from 2009 to 2014. The perspective clusters are identified through the share of indus-try’s employment that is extraordinary in comparison to the national employment, or through the most dynamic regional contribution towards the change in employment.

Keywords:

clusters, employment, industry, location quotient, shift-share analysis
