This article contributes to the literature on firm demography and regional development in at least three differentways. First, consumption, rather than employment, which is the most common variable seen in literature, is used tomeasure the impact of firm demography on regional development. Second, while the literature is mainly focused on therelationship between new business formation and regional development, we investigate both entry and exit flows of firms.Third, we decompose each of these flows into spatial and sectoral components. The empirical investigation looks at theItalian regions with reference to the period 2004–2009. Results seem to be substantially divergent between the South andthe rest of Italy.
