Administrative boundaries and homogeneus areas with respect to demographic features of resident population in Tuscany
The paper is based on the idea that the organization of services by local authorities should take into account both the demographic features of the resident population and the spatial dimension of the territory involved. As regards the former, it seeks to identify homogeneous and spatially contiguous areas between the municipal and regional levels in Tuscany, the region analysed in this study. Demographic indicators of usually resident population plus the spatial attributes of each tuscan municipality have been used as the input of a spatial clustering and regionalization model in order to obtain n areas that minimize the inner heterogeneity of the demographic structure under the constraint of spatial contiguity.
