Call for Abstracts on the Effects of State and Local Financial Incentives on Business Locations Decisions

Economic Development Quarterly (EDQ) is seeking research manuscripts for a special issue on state and local financial incentives affecting business location decisions.  

To encourage rigorous analysis of the relevant issues, the Upjohn Institute will make available two unique databases – the Panel Database on Incentives and Taxes (PDIT), which contains data on incentives and taxes for 33 states and 45 industries for the past 26 years; and the Wholedata Establishment and Employment Database, which provides unsuppressed estimates of County Business Patterns employment and number of establishments down to the 6-digit NAICS level of industrial detail at the county level from 1998 to 2016.  

Submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. Topic ideas with abstract/outline must be emailed to edq@upjohn.org by August 24, 2018.
