This study aims at analyzing the structure of the regional industries in Daejeon, including Choongchung area and the measurement of Regional Innovation Ability Index. The study also investigates the environment of the regional innovation activities in terms of Regional Location Quotient Index. The study mainly focuses on the estimation of four types of innovation ability indexes, i.e., human resource, knowledge creation, knowledge transfer and application, and innovation supporting finance output market. The findings indicate that Daejeon showed the highest index 2.977, and Seoul recorded 2.650 as the second rank. The indexes of Choongnam and Choongbuk were 2.034 and 2.082, respectively, which reached to 76%~78% of that of Seoul. The indexes of the other cities accounted for only 50%~60% of that of Deajeon city. This study concludes that there is a regional difference particularly in the knowledge creation area.
