During Mexico’s import-substitution period, Mexico City was an industry center with firms engaged in both stages of production, while labor-intensive assembly activities were dispersed throughout the country. After opening up to international trade, however, a production network was formed between the USA and Mexico. In this new setting, the USA specialized in first-stage activities, while second-stage assembly activities were relocated to the northern border region of Mexico. Note that the northern border region has a location advantage over internal regions in terms of access to the US market: that is, it is less costly for the border region to import parts and components from the USA and to export assembled final products back to the USA.

As concentration or specialization increases, the coefficient also increases. As in the Herfindahl index, this index measures how the spread of industries in a region or the spread of an industry among regions differs from uniform distribution. This coefficient is sensitive to changes in the middle range of the order and, thus, is useful if our interest is in changes in the middle range (Atkinson 1970). This coefficient is not additively decomposable. Thus, as illustrated by Cowell (2011: 64), the Gini coefficient for the sum of two different groups decreases when the Gini coefficients for each of the two different groups increases.
