Resumo

This work uses spatial econometric analysis to investigate the importance of the size of firms for the economic development indicators of the Brazilian municipalities from 2000 to 2010. The investigation is motivated by the amount of resources and effort that governments dedicate to policies attracting and supporting local business. The estimated models present dissimilarity findings across sectors and development indicators. For instance, the sign of the relationship between employment growth and the size of firm depends on the sectors considered. Thus, the results recommend special attention on the part of policy makers in formulating their local development strategies.
