RODRIGUEZ-GAMEZ, Liz Ileana  and  CABRERA-PEREYRA, José Antonio. Spatial analysis of economic growth dynamics in Mexico (1999-2009). Econ. soc. territ [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.55, pp.709-741. ISSN 2448-6183.

This article is a first look into the exploratory spatial analysis of economic growth across Mexican municipalities over the period from 1999-2009. Through the exploratory spatial data analysis (ESDA) and geo-statistical techniques, the paper uncovers the importance of spatial contiguity in scattering the economic growth. Therefore, using a spatial and temporal perspective, the article analyzes the spatial autocorrelation phenomenon in identifying patterns and territorial dynamics of economic growth. Finally, it shows the municipalities with virtuous and vicious processes of growth or stagnation, as well as those with resilience to economic growth.

Keywords : economic geography; economic growth; spatial analysis; spatial autocorrelation; spatial heterogeneity.
