Innovation is expected to exhibit strong geographic clustering because new product commercialization relies on knowledge that is cumulative and place-specific. This Chapter explores spatial patterns of innovation using the innovation citation data from the United States Small Business Administration (SBA). The data are based on new product citations and capture innovation which, by nature of the citation, add new, economically-useful knowledge to a product category.
