In this chapter we discuss the empirical representation of agglomeration economies, with a focus on the potential of production theory-based econometric models to analyze the productive impacts of such externalities. In particular, we overview the use of production theory models and measures to represent the causes, and productivity, location and growth effects, of agglomeration economies.
