These data consist of the distribution of offices for 46 'global' advanced producer service firms over 55 world cities. Global firms are defined by having offices in at least 15 different cities. World cities are from the GaWC inventory of world cities (see GaWC Research Bulletin 6). Service values for a firm in a city are given as 3, 2, 1 or 0 as defined in Data Set 4.
These data are an experimental set of data derived from Data Set 4 (43 of the firms qualify as global) but with three additional law firms added which do not have London offices. For publications that make use of these data, see GaWC Research Bulletin 13 and GaWC Research Bulletin 17.
