Abstract
Active creation of jobs and start-ups in high-tech clusters like Silicon Valley has drawn a lot of attentions from policy makers and analysts around the world. We empirically investigate the geography of Korea’s high tech jobs and start-ups using the combined data set of Korea’s Local Employment Survey and Korea’s R&D Activities Survey. Although we identified significantly positive agglomeration effects of higher wages of highly educated employees and bigger probability of start-ups in locations with more highly educated people, we could not find the empirical evidence of high-tech clusters with active technology transfers from universities and public R&D institutions to start-ups in Korea.
