  Title Entropy as a common measure of biodiversity and the spatial structure of economic activity Type Journal Article
  Year 2019 Publication Revue Economique Abbreviated Journal Rev. Econ.  
  Volume 70 Issue 3 Pages 305-326  
  Keywords (down) Diversity; Economic geography; Spatial concentration; Specialization  
  Abstract Measures of spatial concentration and specialization in economics are similar to those of biodiversity and ubiquity of species in ecology. Entropy is the fundamental tool that originated in statistical physics and information theory. The definition of number equivalents or effective numbers, that is the number of types in an ideal, simplified distribution, is introduced along with the partitioning of the joint diversity of a bi-dimensional distribution into absolute and relative concentration or specialization and replication. The whole framework is theoretically robust and allows measuring the spatial structure of a discrete space.
