Résumé

This study examines the location of economic activity in Spain for the years 1991 and 2001, employing a framework previously applied to Canada, which emphasizes the role of distance and urban size. Using census data, Spain’s 8,086 municipalities are classified according to their population size and distance from major metropolitan areas. The location of industry is then plotted in relation to these classes. On the whole, results display regular spatial distributions consistent with classic location theory and previous findings. No major alterations in location patterns were observed over time, confirming the continued importance of distance and of agglomeration economies. However, the results reveal a vigorous crowding-out process, fuelling the growth of manufacturing activity in locations in close proximity to metropolitan areas.
