Abstract

RODRIGUES, Marcos Aurelio; MONTEIRO, Waleska de Fátima; CAMPOS, Antonio Carlos de  and  PARRE, José Luiz. Identificação e análise espacial das aglomerações produtivas do setor de confecções na região Sul. Econ. Apl. [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.2, pp. 311-338. ISSN 1413-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-80502012000200005.

The aim of this paper is to identify and analyze the evolution of productive agglomerations in the Southern Brazil's clothing sector. Two factors underpin the methodological procedure: geographic proximity and sectoral concentration, combined by spatial concentration analysis. The first one by Exploratory Spatial Data Analysis, and the second by constructing the normalized Concentration Index. The results show: positive spillover of the agglomerations beyond municipal and even state boundaries; remarkable progress for the State of Paraná, as much in spillover as in concentration; stability in spillover to the clusters' municipalities, but with strong concentration, in the state of Santa Catarina.

Keywords : Local Productive Agglomerations; Concentration Index; Exploratory Spatial Data Analysis.
