SILVA, João Felipe Barbosa Araripe; REBOUCAS, Sílvia Maria Dias Pedro; ABREU, Mônica Cavalcanti Sá de  e  RIBEIRO, Maria da Conceição Rodrigues. Building a sustainable development index and spacial assessment of municipalities inequalities in the state of Ceará. Rev. Adm. Pública [online]. 2018, vol.52, n.1, pp.149-168. ISSN 0034-7612.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0034-7612163114.

The paper builds a sustainable development index based on environmental, social, economic and institutional dimensions and presents a spatial assessment of municipalitties inequalities in the State of Ceará. Sustainability indices force institutions and governments to question their standards and act as “driving forces” for public policy-making. The validity of sustainability indexes is heavily dependent on how their components are weighted and aggregated. The research is quantitative developed through secondary data acquired in public agency databases of the country (Brazil) and federal unit (State of Ceara). Data analysis included confirmatory factor analysis for the construction of general sustainability indexes, descriptive analysis of these indices and spatial econometric modeling to represent on the map of Ceará municipalities. The survey results reveal a regular adjustment of the sustainable development index. The model allows a geographical view of sustainable development indicators and presents with a tool in the definition of public policies for social equity, environmental and economic. The analysis of social, economic, environmental, institutional and general indices revealed that the most urban areas of the State of Ceará have a greater sustainable development and confirms the fragility of public policies in promoting regional balance.

Palavras-chave : confirmatory factor analysis; spatial econometric model; sustainable development; composite indicadors; state of Ceará.
