En este trabajo se compara el grado de desigualdad en la distribución espacial de la industria manufacturera argentina a nivel regional y provincial entre los años anterior y posterior al periodo que va de 1974 a 2002, durante el cual se abandonó la política de sustitución de importaciones y la participación del sector manufacturero en el producto interno bruto mostró una tendencia decreciente. Se analiza con métodos cuantitativos datos censales sobre valor agregado y puestos de trabajo ocupados en 1973 y 2003. Se concluye que la desigualdad total disminuyó conservando su patrón espacial.
