Remember the 'Technology Boom' of the late 1990s? A new report by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco compares the economic performance and industrial composition of a select group of the nation's technology centers over the five year period from 1995 to 2000. The research focuses on ten metropolitan areas with high concentrations of information technology employment--Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, Portland, San Francisco Bay, Seattle and Washington, D.C. Mary Daly and Robert Valetta, researchers with the San Francisco Fed, also compare and contrast research and development spending by metropolitan area, patent levels and exports, to characterize regional differences in high tech industry bases.
