A Modified RCA Index for Identifying Regional Strategic Industries Kim, Hyun-Chul;
In this paper, we suggested a modified revealed comparative advantage(RRCA) index for identifying regional strategic industries. The index is developed under the assumption that the concentration of industries in Korea is not based entirely on the comparative advantages. The Korean government has set up balanced development strategies since 2003 under the assumption too. The index is the ratio between the comparative advantage index and economic imbalance of the region. By the index, we selected strategic industries for 15 regions under the rule of 1) relative ratio of the index is more than 15%, 2) 1 to 3 regions for a industry according to the industry`s output.
