Assimetria e concentração: um estudo empírico da distribuição de investimentos previstos para o Estado do Espírito Santo, 2009-2014 [Asymmetry and concentration: an empirical study of the predicted investment distribution for the state of Espírito Santo, 2009-2014]
This paper aims to provide a detailed statistical descriptive analysis for the distribution of regional investments. In doing so, it used a novel dataset related to planned investment projects for Espírito Santo's municipalities during the 2009-2014 period. Additionally, we present results related to these investment values in order to test the empirical validity of Zipf's Law for the distribution under analysis. These results are important for the identification of empirical patterns related to the spatial distribution of investment projects, and may be useful for the formulation and implementation of public policies aimed at developing specific localities.
