    En este articulo se propone un enfoque multicriterio para ordenar el desempeño de los sectores economicos de Sinaloa, Mexico, y se identifican los sectores mas atractivos. El enfoque utiliza el metodo ELECTRE-III para construir una relacion de sobreclasificacion valuada y despues un algoritmo evolutivo multiobjetivo para explotar la relacion y obtener una recomendacion. Los sectores de ventas al por menor y de manufactura ocuparon el primer lugar de manera sistematica, el sector de servicios publicos ocupo el segundo lugar en todos los rankings, el sector de comercio al por mayor se clasifico en tercero, el sector de la mineria y la direccion de corporativos y empresas ocuparon el ultimo lugar. Los resultados de esta aplicacion pueden ser utiles para inversionistas, empresarios y responsables politicos.
