The purpose of this study to empirical analysis of the effects of distance-decay for the relocated firms in the Seoul Metropolitan Area(SMA). In addition, this study was constructed distance-decay function for the relocated firms by industrial types using a general distance-decay function. The data of relocated firms in the SMA extracted from the spatial database which was constructed in an previous research. The industrial type divided into 3 parts which are construction, manufacturing, and service. The result of empirical analysis by each industrial type of the effect of distance-decay, the explanatory power($R^2$) of the each function were all high. In the construction, the adjusted $R^2$ of the distance-decay function was 0.728, the manufacturing was 0.802 and the service was 0.812. It means the effect of distance decay for the relocated firms in construction industrial type more big than the effects of distance decay for the manufacturing and service industrial types.
