Abstract

En el presente documento se analiza la distribución de la actividad económica y la población en Colombia. A partir de la representación de mapas temáticos se observa la gran concentración que existe en la población y la actividad económica en el centro del país. Se encuentra que más del 60% de la población y el 70% del PIB se localizan en la zona central. A través de índices de correlación espacial tales como el índice de Moran, Geary, Getis y Ord se evalúa la dependencia espacial de la actividad económica de los municipios, encontrándose importantes dependencias espaciales en los "antiguos departamentos". En los demás municipios se encuentran correlaciones en la actividad económica muy bajas o no significativas, lo cual evidencia la débil integración que existe entre ellos.
