4). 2 Second Step: From Local Labour Markets to Economic Regions (Size and Distance to Size Criterions) After defining the local employment systems, we can now classify these basic spatial units first according to size and then according to distance to size. 1 shows the distribution of local labour markets by population size in Spain, where five tiers or levels are defined. The two first tiers, LLM1 and LLM2, correspond to metropolitan areas or centres in Christaller’s nomenclature. Given the major difference in size between the metropolitan areas of Madrid and Barcelona and the rest (with more than 500,000 but less than 2,500,000 inhabitants), we consider it appropriate to distinguish these two levels.

In contrast, activities that are tradable over broader distances, not requiring proximity to the point of consumption, and/or are demanded less frequently will concentrate their production in a limited number of central locations. As distance costs fall and trade increases, larger concentrations should normally grow in size. A shift in the national economy towards agglomeration-sensitive goods and services (and away from, say, agriculture) also favours the growth of larger concentrations (Parr 2002).

It was no longer indentified with municipalism, spatial planning policies and investment in social overhead capital undertaken by municipalities. However, it was not possible to prevent that local development from being associated with LLMAs dominated by SMEs and, therefore, with industrial districts (Signorini 2000). As a consequence, it became necessary to clarify that districts were only one among the multiple paths of local development (Bellandi and Sforzi 2001). In the field of sociology of innovation, LLMAs have been adopted to identify areas of high-tech activity (Biagiotti et al.
