    Abstract

    La Región Metropolitana de Barcelona (RMB) ha sido caracterizada como un sistema urbano policéntrico. Sin embargo, no existe un criterio comúnmente aceptado que haya permitido identificar con claridad los subcentros de la región. La investigación que aquí se presenta persigue un doble objetivo: en primer lugar identificar los subcentros de empleo de la RMB mediante un método objetivo y, en segundo lugar, valorar su grado de policentrismo. Para identificar los subcentros se procede siguiendo dos pasos: primero se identifican los municipios candidatos a subcentro utilizando criterios basados en la densidad de empleo y en el índice Empleos/Población, para a continuación estimar una función de densidad de población utilizando como variables explicativas, además de la distancia al CBD, la distancia a cada uno de los candidatos a subcentro. Los municipios identificados mediante este doble filtro sólo capturan un porcentaje relativamente reducido del total de puestos de trabajo debido a que el núcleo ampliado (Barcelona más continuo urbano) concentra un porcentaje de empleos muy significativo, y a que el ratio Empleos/Población presenta unos valores muy homogéneos en todos los municipios con independencia de su tamaño.
