Abstract

Developments in spatial methodsconcerned with location, spatial interaction, spatial structure and spatial processesare creating new possibilities for studies of the properties of socioeconomic systems. In this paper, we use spatial statistical techniques with a geographic information system (GIS) for describing the spatial distribution of economic data, such as the mean center, standard distance and standard deviational ellipse. Analyzing the reality of the State of Rio Grande do Sul (Brasil), we compare the distribution of GDP, monthly income and "per capita" income observed in the period 1970-2000 (census years). The paper concludeswith some brief reflections on the patterns and trends of these distributions.
