Abstract: In this study, a spatial equilibrium model of employment growth is
developed and empirically estimated by Generalized Spatial Two-Stage Least
Squares (GS2SLS) estimator using cross-sectional data from Appalachian
counties for 1990-2000. Besides the existence of spatial spillover effects, the
results suggest that agglomerative effects that arise from the demand and the
supply side contribute to employment growth in the study area during the study
period. The policy implications of the findings are: (1) Regional cooperation of
counties and communities is advisable and may in fact be necessary to design
effective policies to encourage employment growth; and (2) Policy makers at
the county level may need to design policies that can attract people with high
endowments of human capital and higher income into their respective counties
