The study investigates agglomeration externalities in Ecuador. It develops a method for defining functional urban areas where commuting data are not available. Having defined cities, the study examines the production side of agglomeration economies, emphasising the informal sector, which accounts for a significant part of total employment. The study investigates the impact of spatial externalities on the wages of workers and finds that these externalities matter.
