Abstract

Based on an individual longitudinal data on dependent employment we analyse the role of Creative
Industries for the employment system of Vienna. We focus on gross job flows and firm dynamics in
this priority field of Vienna's urban policy and analyse the characteristics of the different parts of the
cluster's production system. We find ample evidence for positive effects of Creative Industries on
employment growth and firm birth, but also reveal considerable job turnover and a large
heterogeneity of firm growth in the cluster. Especially, we find rather different evolutions along the
clusters value chain, which points to weak linkages between upstream and downstream activities in
the cluster. (author's abstract)
