  1. Shares are expressed as a proportion of gross output. Seoul is classified as a ‘special city’; Busan, Daegu, Daejeon, Gwangju, Incheon and Ulsan as ‘metropolitan cities’; Jeju as a ‘special self-governing province’; and the rest as ‘provinces’. The last column displays the optimal values of δ from Table 4
