The Ellison-Glaeser index is an unbiased measure of geographic industrial localization that improves upon simpler measures, such as the location quotient. We develop and describe software that allows for the Ellison-Glaeser index to be used in a statistical test to assess the chance that a particular industry is geographically localized. We give instructions on how to install the software, run the program, and interpret the results.
