Research on human capital generally focuses on the regional level, and neglects the
relative effects of its distribution between center cities and surrounding suburbs. This
research examines the effects of this intra-metropolitan distribution on economic
performance. The findings indicate that this distribution matters significantly to US
regional performance. Suburban human capital matters more than center city human
capital. However, this varies by regional size. Suburban human capital has the
biggest effect on regional economic performance in smaller and medium size metros.
Center city human capital has a relatively larger effect on economic performance in
regions with over one million people.
