Evolution of the Spanish Urban Structure During the Twentieth Century
AbstractIn this paper we analyse the evolution of the Spanish urban structure during the period 1900-1999. The methodology employed allows us to obtain two main results. First, that this evolution has not been homogenous, with a divergent pattern of growht being identified for the period running from 1900 to 1970, and a convergent one for the period from 1970 to 1999. Secondly, that the intradistribution movements in the Spanish urban hierarchy were very significant during the course of the 20th century. Apart from these two results, we have also detected the existence of spatial correlation for those cities that have either lost or acquired population during the period in question.
