Diagnóstico y perspectivas del sector terciario en las regiones mexicanas



The present paper is intended to expose the potential of economic development in the Mexican regions, based on the analysis of the concentration of product per worker in the different economic activities which together make up the tertiary sector, and taking into account the distribution of FDI, both sectoral and spatial level. This study proposes a nontraditional methodology for measuring and assessing the structural composition of the Mexican regions through regional analysis tools, such as concentration indicators of aggregate and sectoral economic activity. A preliminary conclusion is that the intensification of regional inequalities, both in aggregate economic levels and distribution of personal incomes, is due to the high concentration of productive activity in strategic sectors, but with little positive impacts on other regions that lack a dynamic economic structure.
