Abstract [en]

This thesis analyzes the location and size distribution of arts and entertainment industries in Sweden as well as the size distribution of Swedish labor market regions. Several sectors of the arts and entertainment industry are investigated empirically by comparing their location and overall capacity to the size of their respective markets and testing their conformity with the rank-size rule. The analyzed establishments are opera houses, football stadiums, concert performances and movie theaters. The results are brought in context with transportation cost, market size, subsidies and optimal firm size. In conclusion, most arts and entertainment industries tend to locate close to urban agglomerations, their distributions in general follow the distribution of the population as determined by the labor market regions. Exceptions occur when the identified market differs significantly from the general population or when large amounts of subsidies distort the natural distribution
