Com um caráter exploratório, este trabalho tem como objetivo geral estudar a divisão regional do desenvolvimento humano dentro do Estado de Pernambuco, a partir dos dados do Atlas de Desenvolvimento Humano da Fundação João Pinheiro e da aplicação da análise de cluster. Neste sentido, foi possível delinear os principais aspectos regionais do desenvolvimento humano pernambucano. De um modo geral, observou-se que os municípios do interior do Estado encontram-se em pior situação, com destaque negativo para os localizados no sertão. Por outro lado, a Região Metropolitana de Recife pode ser considerada a mesorregião mais desenvolvida do Estado, seguido pelo Vale do São Francisco.---------------------------------------------With an exploratory character, this paper has as general objective to study the regional division of the human development inside of Pernambuco State, starting from data of the Atlas of Human Development of the João Pinheiro Foundation and of the cluster analysis application.
