Department of Geography & Environment-LSE
Henry Overman is Professor of Economic Geography in the department of Geography and Environment at the London School of Economics. His current research interests include the causes and consequences of spatial disparities and the impact of urban and regional policy.
Abstract: We investigate the impacts of a significant area-based policy intervention (LEGI) that aimed to increase employment and productivity in 30 disadvantaged areas across England. In order to identify the causal effects of the programme, we use panel data at a fine spatial scale covering years before and after the launch of the program, and exploit several institutional features that determined whether or not an area was supported. We find evidence of significant displacement of employment from non-treated to treated areas close to the treatment area boundary. Aside from this displacement, we find no evidence of significant (net) impacts on treated areas, either in terms of number of firms or unemployment. Combining ‘spatial differencing’ with a regression discontinuity approach based on eligibility criteria confirms these findings.
