Empirical Investigation of the Relation between Transportation Infrastructure and the Pattern of Production Specialization across the US

This research project is in the process of data collection and organization, literature review and formulation of hypotheses. There are more date options and sources than previously known. Data is notorious for problems with correct definitions of the location of production. A major issue in interpreting origin data since the origin of movement does not always coincide with the origin of production. The project has almost constructed its bilateral resistance matrix. It created a file with bilateral state distances based on the shortest distance between capitals and created a state distance file that allows for any pair of states to determine the states that are "on the way" from one state to another.
