Abstract This paper analyses the role of regional context on innovation persistency of firms.Using the Community Innovation Survey in Sweden, we have traced firms' innovativebehaviour from 2002 to 2012, in terms of four Schumpeterian types of innovation: product,process, organizationa l, and marketing. Controlling for an extensive set of firm-level charac-teristics, we find that certain regional characteristics matter for innovation persistency of firms.In particular, those firms located in regions with: (i) thicker labour market or (ii) higher extent ofknowledge spillover exhibit higher probability of being persistent innovators up to 14percentage points. Such higher persistency is mostly pronounced for product innovators.
