This study identifies the pattern of comparative advantage for U.S. regions from actual trade performance as indicated by the industry composition of exports. Revealed comparative advantage patterns are also determined using production data. Dynamic changes in comparative advantage patterns are identified using a methodology developed by Kreinin and Plummer (1994a). Comparative advantage patterns and the degree of structural change in exports vary considerably across regions. Results will assist U.S. regions and states in formulating effective export promotion strategies.
