The 11 economic development determinants examined 25 geographic means and climate variables over 1,867 sub-national regions in 101 nations, with a focus on country effects of geography on institutions.


Studies on the impact of geography on economic activity emphasize levels of growth and output. We show that geographical and climatic variables explain global economic activity as measured by gross cell product (GCP) and PC, with a fine geographical resolution higher than the national average. Climate change will affect all regions differently depending on latitude, coastal location, and other geographical features, and is likely to cause significant shifts in economic activity worldwide.

In developing countries where regional urban development is seen for obvious reasons as part of the broader industrialization process, research focuses on the design of urban systems and the spatial dynamics of population and economic activity that underpin urban industrial traditions (Black and Henderson 1999 ). The impact of geography, climate, and other geographic activities on economic activity The last section presents the results of analyzing economic activity patterns using the new G-Econ dataset.

Previous studies on the relationship between economic activity and geography have been hampered by limited spatial data on economic activity. Based on analysis of data from tropical Africa, we estimate that the geography of Africa is a major economic disadvantage compared to temperate countries and is even more disadvantageous compared to other low-latitude regions.

Abstract - The most striking feature of economic geography around the world is the unequal spatial distribution of economic activities, including the coexistence of economic development and underdevelopment. If economic activity is located in a small region, productivity tends to be infinite. In this paper, many have examined the impact of market size on local productivity and innovation Since market size determines innovation and the initial distribution of economic activity in underdeveloped economies is determined by local conveniences, it seems logical to conclude that places with the best conveniences become more productive over time.

Although existing studies are helpful for a variety of uses, they have three significant problems in establishing the impact of geographic attributes on economic activity, which this dataset addresses. By using invariant geographic variables (latitude) and some climatic variables (average temperature and precipitation) as explanatory factors, this study considers how geography and climate explain the socioeconomic activity. Using data and models from the 1992-2016 Spatial Dynamics Panel, this research evaluates economic growth in terms of bilateral trade flows and geographical distances.


The New Economic Geography NEG considers the spatial concentration of economic activity to be an endogenous part of economic processes that do not depend on the initial nature of geographies, such as the English distribution of natural resources, climate, and proximity to coastal and rivers. The geographical location determines the surrounding distribution of economic activities, transport and trade costs, and the related access to purchasing power.


The New Economic Geography (NEG) emerges from the founding papers of Krugman (1991) and the New Neoclassical Urban Economy (NNUE), which emerged from the old tradition of urban economics and offer a more ambitious and comprehensive set of interregional spatial equilibrium models.

Geography includes climatic factors, which are considered an important element in the design of socio-economic activities, as well as other determinants such as institutions. The spatial impact of trade and the impact of geographical proximity on economic growth will also be examined. If economic conditions in one country are unfavorable, they can have adverse effects in another region.

The regional autonomy of other regions in the process of economic growth is not to be ignored. Geodesy provides several geographic variables in this study, such as bilateral distance (measured by city-level data) which take into account the geographical distribution of population within a nation that is used. The more countries develop, the more important the geographical trade variable becomes.

Much of the population growth is expected to take place in economically disadvantaged regions over the next thirty years. Explaining how growth between regions and cities is changing is one of the major challenges facing the social sciences. GCP is the total cell of a country's gross domestic product.
