## generate a first region - industry matrix in which cells represent the presence/absence
## of a RCA (period 1)
set.seed(31)

rownames(mat1) <- c ("R1", "R2", "R3", "R4", "R5")
colnames(mat1) <- c ("I1", "I2", "I3", "I4")

## generate a second region - industry matrix in which cells represent the presence/absence
